Being a traveler is more than traveling. It is a lifestyle. It is the uncontrollable desire to explore, to leave no stone un-flipped, and to step outside yourself to see the world in a new way. One can travel the world without ever truly experiencing it. Never let fear stop you from doing something you want to. Take in whatever you can, try new things, connect the dots, and above all else do so with an open mind. Accept that life is a mystery. Search for the deeper meaning. Try to understand.
There is no shame in being a backyard explorer. There are times in life when one simply cannot get too far. No matter where you are there are interesting things to learn and new things to try. Be adventurous in life. Do not accept the typical. Be always moving forward. See the beauty in the everyday. Remember what it was like to make a new discovery as a child. Be always searching for that feeling.
