“Le Voyage Est Facile”
There used to be a time when I was scared of going out of my hometown. Yes, there was that time. I’m not proud of it. I hated feeling like that. I didn’t feel safe to think of travelling outside my little place. And then I regain my willing power and became the dreaming traveller once again. I always dreamt of travelling when I was in school, but for some reason I became shy and scared. Then I felt like going somewhere new would bring me even more stress. Well, of course I was wrong.
When I finally survived that period of my life, I wanted to go out and explore. I felt like a sailor. You know, all those adventure movies? I was watching so many of them. I also wanted to be a little like a pirate, always travelling somewhere new. I didn’t travel far and I didn’t travel that much, but I felt that I wasn’t scared anymore of going places. That was the most important thing that I needed at that time.
It’s actually like it says on my t-shirt here. Travelling is easy. You may think it’s hard planning, it’s difficult going somewhere, that it takes time and everything else, but it’s actually not really like that. Everytime I travel or I go home, I understand how quickly it takes to be somewhere else. It might feel like forever if you think too much about it, but it’s actually not. This is the power of going place and going against time.
“The real voyage of discovering consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes”
It’s a real blessing to be able to take some time off, relax, pack your bags and go. And this is what we really need from time to time. So if we have that opportunity… we might then go Try and learn.
