Travel and living.

Image

Traveling can offer insights into life through life changing experiences. While at other times it can show you what your life could be like if you choice to spend several years in that given location. Sometimes traveling can be about “test driving” a city or place to see if you would want to spend your “life” there or at the very least move there and get a job.

A testing trip is less about seeking out experiences what will change you, but it is about going to a market to stock the apartment you are renting with supplies. While trying your best to blend in and practice your language skills. It is about going to the movies, because that is what people that live there do. It is about afternoon picnics in the park followed by a nap. A tester trip can be a week in a given city and not going to all the famous sights, instead spending your days drinking coffee in cafes going to the park, and hanging out in “your” apartment.

    Mike, exactly. Travelling isn’t always about the must-sees or the must-dos. It is about you and who you are and how the journey and adventure changes you.

    1. Thanks. Currently I am on an summer adventure to Paris. My only goal is to read and sit in parks.
