Someone just asked this question in a Girls Who Travel group I recently joined.
No one’s ever asked before, and I’ve never tried to put it into words.
But when I was asked, this came out of me, and I liked it, so I thought I’d share it with you.
I travel to feed my soul — it craves epic experiences, breathtaking scenery, exotic new foods, and learning about the world.
Also to challenge myself, to stretch my comfort zone and learn what I’m capable of, so I can keep expanding and living an extraordinary life.
And, finally, to learn about beng human. Traveling helps me learn what’s cultural and what’s universal — I’m fascinated by the fact that every human culture has prioritized things like art, music, history, kindness, romance, heroics and storytelling even though they’re not essential to our survival.
Which brings me back to feeding the soul…
