Travel has always held a sense of wonder and enjoyment for me. Whether its flying to a new and exciting destination, or taking a road trip with friends or family. There’s always something special about going somewhere. Sometimes its a family vacation to the beach. Other times its a trip to visit extended family. Or maybe its a road trip with friends to the mountains. Quite often I’ll drive for a few hours to stay with friends for the weekend.
I love making up packing lists and to-do lists and checking things off as they get done. I like to write dates and destinations on the calendar and cross off the days as they approach. To look up restaurants and hiking areas, and attractions at the destination, or along the way.
I love adventure. Exploring areas of uninhabited beach or forest or ravine. Walking along quaint city streets and taking pictures of architecture and the history that the area is steeped in. But as an introvert, I like to do it at my own pace. To slowly walk along the street taking in the scents and sounds. To meander across a picturesque bridge, taking photos all the way. To stop at a quaint cafe and order a coffee or tea. To sit there and absorb the atmosphere of the place. To find out the best places to eat by asking the locals. To wander off the beaten path and explore the hidden gems that can only be found by looking. There are so many amazing experiences that one can enjoy.
