There was a house surrounded by different shape and size dwellings. Streets and paths were connecting them like arteries delivering the so needed oxygen. You may find a green patch relieving itself as a garden or even a park. If you are lucky enough, you may have a lake or even a sea with a beach. Multiple this setting several times and you get a village, a town and even a city. A beautiful place. A precious place where everything is simple and familiar. Home. Sometimes you have an argument but it dissolves like a sugar cube in the water. You know all its secrets and desires. It is your place after all. Why would you leave it?
An intruder stirs the water like storm raindrops landing on the lake. Fascinating and frightening at the same time. Travel. Adventure. Dreams? It has many names. You are ready (or you think you are). Your first flight, drive, run or walk towards a new destination is like your first spoiled pancake. Soon you will master the art of pancakes. Oh yes, you are growing again. Not your body but YOU.
Travelling brings much more than just nice pictures, enhanced taste buds, or exposure on the social media. Why do YOU travel? Stop a minute and reflect. If you haven't started yet, hope some of my reasons motivates you to start.
