Ode to Travel – a personal musing

Travel is about breaking patterns and expanding boundaries. Nourishing the mind and feeding the soul with rich and intoxicating new sights, sensations and flavours.

For some, it may be as simple as margaritas by the ocean and a mariachi band. But for those more enlightened and searching souls, it is about striving and growing as people. Widening our perspective and intensifying our own presence, purpose and personal footprint through meaningful interactions with farflung cultures. An intense rendezvous with the long ago past and the scintillating present. It is even a powerful antidote to bigotry, narrow prejudices and fear by jolting us from our comfortable boxes and insular circles.
Travel is enlivening. Awakening. Empowering. And a priority and obligation for each human being on this planet.
