The Business of Traveling
I recently stumbled upon tons of photos from a trip to Europe I took with my parents when I was younger.
We were fortunate enough to be able to travel around Europe for a little over a month, seeing everything from London, England to Santorini, Greece to visiting my brother Cracow, Poland. (Where he lived at the time) Although I was extremely grateful to go on this trip, I remember not appreciating it as much because I was so young. However, seeing these photos made me realize how good traveling can be for a person. I feel like one should do a trip at least once a year. It doesn't have to be on a massive scale like my parents and I did, but I truly believe that travel is good for the soul. It can really help to broaden a persons horizons or, at the very least, keep you from catching a case of Cabin Fever.
After looking through all of the photos from Europe I decided to make a promise to myself that whether it's on a larger scale, or a small scale I will travel to someplace I've never been to at least once every year. Luckily, Oregon has many places to explore so doing it on a smaller scale will still work (and save me some money). I believe we spend our time on this Earth endlessly creating ourselves. You will never be the same person at 20 that you are at 35, or even 21!. I'm still figuring out who I am as a person, and who I want to be, and that's okay. But traveling is something I know I need to do for myself. I need to be out of my element and experience something new (at least once a year) to be able to learn and to grow everyday.
Got any travel plans, or places your hoping to travel to? Let me know.
