A Cherished Collection of Dreams
Traveling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller – Ibn Battuta
What’s your dream trip? What’s the one place that speaks to your heart yet you’ve never been to? As a child, I loved reading books and entering into an imaginary world of words where fairytales existed. The faraway places sprung forth and allowed me to escape into worlds that were unknown and yet to be experienced. I was captivated by all the enchanting locations, often pretending I was the characters just so I could be in the adventure. In my personal opinion, the ultimate dream trip or storybook destination doesn’t necessarily include checking off a long list of 100 top places you must see before you die. It’s all about you – it’s a personal thing. For me, it’s to enlist the places and things that will grant me a new beginning, an awakening of beautiful emotions.
I’ve taken a new stance in how to travel and believe in the bigger purpose, allowing magical moments that often cannot be planned to guide my footsteps. The journey is all about being moved to travel slow, an evolution through the experiences you will have and fulfilling a very personal purpose. The heart-beat within this trend is about the enrichment, the spontaneity, the serendipity and serene moments that you’ll encounter and through this process maybe even experience some profound life-changing connection with yourself through traveling. So toss your bucket list into the winds of change, and travel because it’s an education to do so, because it’s personally impacting, because it’s an emotional experience, because it’s a rewarding opportunity, and because it’s a necessity for your personal enrichment and go for the places, experiences and people you will encounter on the inviting open road. What’s calling at your soul, stirring up something deep within you, and pulling at your heart-strings? Open the book, find your purpose, choose a path and go!
