I’ve been traveling for over 10 years now, and I love it. I’ve been to most every country on earth. And I’ve been to Australia, France, Japan, New Zealand, Peru, England, Spain, and more. The travel has taken me to places I never thought I’d see. If I’m going to go somewhere, I go there because I want to. I want to experience something that will be a lifelong memory.
Ive been to the United States, the UK, and Australia (no, not that Australia though) but I haven’t been to France, Japan, or New Zealand.
I think for me the real question here is, when I travel do I have a favorite country? I think the answer is no, I don’t because I want to see every place I’ve ever been. I’ve been to all of them and still have a lot to see. If I want to visit all of them, Im going to go to them because Im going to travel. I don’t think its the destination that makes a vacation a vacation.
No, I think it’s the people. In most parts of the world, people are so over-developed and over-coached that they don’t know how to do anything else. Traveling is an art of self-discovery, which is why so many people who go travel do it to get away from their hectic lives. They seek out other cultures, other people, and other viewpoints. They see new and different things, and they learn something about themselves.
To be fair, I don’t think this is a good way to travel. Traveling should be for the purpose of seeing something new, and I’m not sure how anyone could learn anything about themselves by going to the same place every single time. It’s like going to a conference and getting to hear another bunch of people talking about their favorite band and their favorite restaurant.

This is one of the things I’m really getting annoyed by. A lot of travel shows seem to be trying to be a “living” experience, with a little bit of traveling thrown in for the sake of it. This seems to me to be extremely lazy. I mean, it is nice to be able to travel, but I think there is a much larger point with a trip like this, and that point is that you have the opportunity to learn about yourself.
On a deeper level, the real value in traveling is not the actual journey, but rather the experiences you can take with yourself on the way to wherever you want to go. It’s much easier to take a nice vacation with someone you’ve known for a year, than it is to take a trip to a completely different place.
I’m not saying you should just take your time to relax, but you should also allow yourself to go to places, take trips, do things that you wouldn’t do at home. And if you do something that you wouldn’t do at home, it’s not the same. You don’t have the same experiences. And that’s the point of a trip like this. You learn more about yourself.
A trip to somewhere you’ve never been before is an amazing experience. But it’s also a step in the right direction. And the fact that you’ll be able to return home is another step in the right direction. The idea is that you learn about yourself, and you return home with new experiences.
