For those who follow my blog, I have switched to a new site, which you can find here: http://wanderlusttraveler.blogspot.com/
I am an avid traveler whose biggest passion in life involves discovering new places, people, and food. Long ago, I decided to make travel the most important priority in my life.
Its such an amazing experience when you finally discover something in life that brings you complete happiness, fulfillment, and joy. Its even more important when you realize travel has nothing to do with any person or any materialist thing/idea; in my own opinion, experiences that occur while traveling are one of the purest and most incredible things in life.
Traveling has altered my life in more ways than we will ever be able to describe. One of the biggest and most important things traveling has done to me is immensely changed the way I measure quality of life. Travel has also broadened my perspectives and helped me realize that not everyone has the so-called “American Dream” and that having less things in life actually makes you a happier and more fulfilled person. I am also amazed at how much more open-minded I have become than I was prior to traveling; just because other cultures do things in a completely different way than we do or have differing opinions, it doesn't mean that one way is better than the other; this is what is known as the amazing diversity of life.
I can no longer imagine my life without travel. It represents such a huge part of who I am and who I have become; the passion I have for traveling has been etched deep inside my soul, never to be removed. Travel has changed me to the core and I will never be the same again; for that, I am eternally grateful. Sometimes I wonder why I have such a strong desire to see as much of the world as I possibly can, but then, I remember; through travel, I have found my true calling in life, and I know I will always need to wander. Once initiated, traveling is an addiction that can never be stopped.
This blog will allow me to document all of my amazing travels, life-changing experiences, and the interesting interactions I encounter as I travel through this very beautiful and diverse world.
My favorite travel quote: Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. -Miriam Beard
