Why I travel
It's such a simple question why you do something. But it dictates everything. I always asked my traveler friends why they did it but now I'm turning the mic to myself. After a nice brainstorming session, I think I have the answers.
I think it all started when I hosted my very first couchsurfer back in 2017. I wrote my very first blog post explaining that I had discovered the secret to life lol.
What happened though?
Discovering the secret to life is a bold claim. But it was merely a sort of awakening. My ego dissolved to the point that I felt connected to everyone and everything, also known as love.
This love was so impactful that it became my reason for everything, including traveling. I want to share it with everyone. It was infectious. I just wanted to show that love and compassion can erase just about any problem.
