“Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life — and travel — leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks — on your body or on your heart — are beautiful. Often though, they hurt.” – Anthony Bourdain
Growing up I have always been a huge believer in traveling. The thought of staying in one place forever is a bit frightening to me. While I’m writing this and thinking about it, I honestly say it is hard for me stay still for an hour. Although I have always loved the noisy and busy city, I can’t help but instantly fall in love with the outdoors. It is a completely different feel walking barefoot on a sandy white beach and swimming in waters as blue as the sky. This past travel I have learned that I am most happy when floating in the middle of the Gulf only concentrating on seeing the coral and starfish beneath me.
