Written on November 30th, on my way from Norway to Ireland.

Why travel? Why spend all your money and time going places that make you feel uncomfortable or like a fish out of the water? Why do people yearn to get out and explore? Is it just to escape from their every day life? Maybe.

I can’t speak for everyone, but for me it’s because I love learning how different places impact people differently. Weather, language, religious practices – all of these make up a place and affects people in different ways. I can’t get enough of seeing the way people live – how similar or different it may be from my way of life. I will continue to travel to learn empathy and create a global perspective. I am so grateful for the places that I’ve been, and I’m extremely excited about the places I have yet to see!
