travels


I love to travel. More than traveling, I love to learn about new cultures, try new foods, meet new people, and learn about their worldview. I've learned that while you don't need to travel to do this, leaving your comfort zone stretches you, teaches you who you really are, forces you to decide what you want to do with your life, and ultimately makes you a better person. I truly believe it is the best education. Traveling and those I've met along the way, have without a doubt been the biggest influence on my life thus far.
