The People We Meet – Travel is More Than Just Destinations

Visiting new places, exploring landscapes, and seeing new cultures are a big part of why we travel. But there is more to the story than just these three things.

The same translates to my physical location.  I love to explore, and I get antsy if I’m living in one place for too long (I blame my military brat upbringing for that one).  The joy I get out of discovering someplace new is unlike anything else; I get bored too easily with the “known.”

But why the world?   Continue reading “Why I Want to Travel the World – Brianna”

Why I Want to Travel the World – Aaron
