The People & I [Baptism]

“Not I, nor anyone else can travel that road for you. You must travel it by yourself.
It is not far. It is within reach. Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.  Perhaps it is everywhere – on water and land.”

―Walt Whitman, Leaves of Grass

Hey you! Well, this is not a travel blog, or the next TripAdvisor. But I am a traveler, who now has a blog [smile]. In a world full of labels, what would you call me?

Really, I am just someone who left EVERYTHING and went out on the search to find my own treasures—no map. Just my heart.

Travel blogs are important. Yes. And so are reviews. Yes. I mean, it’s a mini guide of everyone else’s experience, in the searches to find your own. Right? That’s the thing though, don’t lose track, the point is to discover your own—so remember that.

Often, I hear many travelers begin a story with – “I read about” – which then follows a negative reaction to something they wanted to experience. The bad review butts-in the way of many people’s personal journey, blocking them from having their own experience and their own personal review. If you believe something is worth it, then go check it out. Go on and experience it. Remember the 1994 movie Forrest Gump?

“Life was like box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get”. ― Winston GroomGump and Co.

Travelling is a life journey filled with education and endless experiences. But it’s not just about ourselves, but more like the world around us and the people we meet. No one makes it through life alone. That is something I’ve learned along the way. It’s all about connections. In the journey, we meet people, we discover places and things that impact our lives. It helps us grow and reach our higher self. It doesn’t matter if it’s a bad experience—I mean, who ever said life was easy? But all experiences are filled with lessons, and well, it’s supposed to teach us something good. Right? [smile]

Lets’ just wrap it up with this. The more you see—the more you know. And in time, you are no longer just a human amongst the seven-billion world’s population. No. You’re someone—with—stories.

Here are some.
