Travel Well, Smart and Often

By on August 10, 2017

“Travel Well, Travel Smart, Travel Often” is my catchphrase, mission and how I aim to live my own life and teach others to do. Travel is my PhD in Life. Travel has fundamentally changed me and I think it’s one of the best things we can do for ourselves. The world is a better place when we all take a moment to travel and explore. On the road, I am fully present and all of my senses are fully engaged. Travel is life to the max.I start each day knowing everything will be new. A day that will not be repeated once again. I am not certain what I will find, but I am certain about one thing. I am free! It’s also not completely about that one final destination either. It’s about the journey! Also, we forget that travel is about time management: Time to relax, rejuvenate, touch the earth, time with loved ones, time to eat new things, time to be with your own thoughts. It’s not about the airlines, TSA, packing, standing in line or pretty pictures on Instagram

“I have cried when leaving places that most people don’t know exist. At times, I have felt like the only inhabitant in the world. I have been at parties with complete strangers! I laugh in other languages and share feelings with beautiful people I have just met. I have discovered that I was wrong: that everything is different, that everything is better, there are no boundaries. Boundaries do not exist.

I am a different person

I have changed

I am a traveller. What about you? Have you ever traveled?”

Below is a video of my recent adventures. Enjoy and take your dreams by the tail.
