I am a firm believer of many things. I am a firm believer that there is more to travel than just seeing sights; it’s about the experiences and the small, but distinct change that takes place somewhere deep inside you.
I am a firm believer that the world is a beautiful and amazing place with a million little secrets to be discovered. I am a firm believer in humanity and its unlimited capacity to amaze and astound me.
I am a firm believer that one dessert is never enough.
My goal with this blog is to share with you not only the sights, sounds, and tastes from my travel, but also everything else that might come along with it: from the little self-realizations to the life-altering discoveries, and even the daily frustrations.
One thing I love most about traveling is seeking out on my own hidden gems that can make my heart soar. These treasures can come in the form of a delicious local restaurant tucked away in a back alley or a quaint cafe with a comfy chair, a delicious blend of tea, and an eclectic book collection. I want to encourage YOU to find “secret” places for yourself! Travel is far more fun and rewarding if you make your own discoveries!
These priceless discoveries can be ANYTHING. It can take form as an old man’s invitation to afternoon tea and conversation, an impromptu photography session with young Buddhist monks, or a day of playing in the sand with children where the only communication is laughter.
My point is this: DON’T MISS AN OPPORTUNITY simply because it’s a little out of the ordinary. You’re traveling to experience the world, so jump right into it!
There are so many things waiting to be uncovered in this world. I implore you to find your own hidden treasures on your next trip, whether it’s to a foreign country or just down the road for a carton of milk.
