Travel is to journey for some period of time in a different place it may be near or far.
When I was a child I remember my family travelled from one place to another within the country. Then, there came a time when my family travelled to another country for 4 years we stayed in Papua New Guinea.
A new place, new people to deal with, different culture and language. I was 2 years old then and after 4 years we went back to the country. We still then travelled to different place within the country especially during summer time. It was fun and filled with unforgettable memories.
In the late 1980s, we were then scheduled to travel to another place, Hong Kong another 4 years of travelling back and forth. I was in Junior High School then, we enjoyed the boat rides, the tourist attractions and of course the food.
“To Travel is to Live” – Hans Christian Andersen
Travel is not only going to other countries it can be within your country, Travel first within your country then, explore the world.
In 2017, I was able to travel to Bangkok Thailand, together with my sister and her friends, a week stay in this country was an adventure. A lot of tourist attractions, sumptuous food and native delicacies and merchandise to buy.
My sister also has her own travel goals she has been to different countries like South Korea, Bangkok Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and soon will be conquering Australia. Its not the cost that matter its the memories that you make which can never be replaced.
Presently, I am in a new country China new adventures, different people to deal with, different lifestyle and culture and new memories to make. Travel has a lot of challenges but, its a learning experience.
Given a chance to travel to other places I would surely grab the opportunity. Its what I love and what would do over and over again.
One day, at my old age I would be able to share my stories to the young. It would like walking back through time and through life, the cherished memories, laughter and tears and lessons of those journeys. You will never return back in time but, you can always tell your story as if it just happened yesterday.
Travel if you can and while you can. I love to travel.
