I feel like the more I grow up the stronger my desire to travel grows. Freud (if my memory from psych class is correct) said that the first 5-6 years of a child's life is the most crucial to shaping their personality. Growing up my family moved around a lot and we didn't stay in one town until I turned 10. You'd think from all that moving around I would want to stay in one place when I'm older because I'm tired of change...it's actually the complete opposite! I'm fascinated with the idea of traveling around the world and discovering new places, learning new things, and meeting new people along the way.
Maybe it's because my cousins live in places on the other side of the world or because my dad get's to travel a lot for work to different countries or maybe it's the curious photojournalist in me wanting to document new experiences. I'm determined to travel the world...or at least most of it...one day whether it's for a job, documenting and publishing everything I do or if it's for pleasure taking trips and jotting things down for fun. As corny as it sounds I'm starting to save up! I'm keeping every coin I get...it'll start off small but hopefully it'll grow. Saving up may help out with payments eventually or maybe it won't even make a dent...but it's kind of like the fuel to my fire, keeping me going with my dream and reminding me not to give up on it. I'm pretty sure after years of saving it'll grow and I'll have a good amount to use for something useful.
Well, that's my little ramble for the day :) Do you guys have any dreams you're excited to make reality?
Hope you all have a great day!
