When I Say I Want To Travel..


When I say I want to travel

I don’t mean I want to stay at resorts and go on tours with tour guides or buy key chains from souvenir shops.

I don’t want to be a tourist.

When I say I want to travel

I mean I want to explore another country and become part of it.


I want to discover small coffee shops in Germany and Italy and Paris.


I want to walk on beaches in Thailand and see how the sunsets on the other side of the world.


I want to walk around each street, get lost, and run into unexpected sights.


I want to go cliff diving in Australia and snorkeling on the coasts.


I want to meet people who are not like me, but people who I can like all the same.


I want to take pictures and videos of everything.

People. Places. Food. Random Streets.

I want my mind to be in constant awe of this life and all it has to offer.


I want to learn things about myself and adapt to a new atmosphere.

I want to meet lifelong friends and people who I can relate to on such a real level.


I want to see things with an open mind, new eyes.


I want to look at a map and be able to remember how I was transformed by the places I’ve been to, the things I’ve seen, the people I’ve met along the way.

I want to come home and realize that I have not come home whole,

But have left a piece of my heart in each place I have been.
