Q1 via travel_edits: Which journey made you feel SMALL within the planet?

  • tranquilotravel: Hiking in the Rocky Mountains
  • AdventureJo: Joining the travel community on Twitter. You guys have seen so much!
  • velvetescape: Patagonia for sure!

  • mobilelawyer: Crossing the Pacific by cargo freighter. 18 days of nonstop movement to get across. Massive ocean. Tiny people
  • Drafted_Boy: Physically the Great Wall of China – imagining that it was built by hand was mind boggling 

Q2 via mobilelawyer: Ever taken a religious pilgrimage or had a visit to a religious/spiritual site move your soul? 

  • RayJGordon: Many temples in Kyoto
  • TippettPR: Visited Assisi and Chapel of St.Francis. Peaceful, beautiful, humbling in it’s simplicity 
  • DoSomethingCool: The amazing churches in Granda, Nicaragua moved me. You can’t walk ten feet without running into a jaw dropping one there 
  • TravelProducer: The Wailing Wall in Israel, Tabgha in Galilee Region, and Sierra Blanca in New Mexico. Total Spiritual Awakenings!

  • sinefm: Pet Sounds by the Beach Boys or Legend by Bob Marley and the Wailers
