How do we even begin to choose our travel locations?
Sometimes we are drawn to a particular aspect of the culture. Maybe it is the language, a monument, or its history; perhaps even off of someone else’s recommendation. Whilst there are other times that we feel an nearly in-explainable pull towards a place.
My method for traveling is to pick a location I would like to visit, then figure out how to make it happen.
When I reflect on The Things My Eyes Have Seen and the incredible places I’ve been, I cannot begin to pick a favorite;
Every landscape holds its own beauty.
Each city has characteristics that make it unique.
All cultures have something to teach you.
I am not here to tell you what you should or should not do; I can only tell you what I chose to do and why. You will only have a memorable experience if YOU hold personal value for what you are doing.
Don’t go to cities only to see the landmarks on postcards. There is so much more to a place than the ‘must see’ locations in travel guides. Give yourself a chance to meet the people, experience the culture, and all that makes this location unique.
