“Travel is life-changing. That’s the promise made by a thousand websites and magazines, by philosophers and writers down the ages. Mark Twain said it was fatal to prejudice, and Thomas Jefferson said it made you wise. Anais Nin observed that ‘we travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.’ It’s all true. Self-transformation is what I sought and what I found.” ~ Elisabeth Eaves
I love this quote by Elisabeth Eaves from her book Wanderlust: A Love Affair with Five Continents.
I truly believe that travel is transformational. The changes it makes don’t have to be huge ones – not everyone comes back from a trip inspired to fundamentally change their life, to change their job, start a new business or project, take up yoga or learn how to play Peruvian windpipes or the didgeridoo.
Sometimes it’s the subtle changes in your outlook on everything from culture and cuisine to politics and personal relationships. Seeing and experiencing how other places are, and how people live around the world, gives you a wider knowledge base about how things are and can be at home.
