I just bought this book titled, “How To Travel,” which is a series of essays that talks about how the places we need and yearn and strive for are really just reflections of what we’re lacking or craving in our day-to-day lives.
This got me thinking, what do I need? And where do I need?
I should ask myself these questions, listen, and then travel accordingly. It seems simple, except many of us have stopped listening to ourselves, and therein lies the problem.
But isn’t this applicable to almost every experience we deem “great?” When I think back, all the best, most satisfying, life-changing trips have come from destinations that had something I didn’t know I needed, at that time.
It all boils down to how you feel when you enter a place. The feelings you have and the ones you’re craving—they decide whether or not you enjoy that place in that time. They decide whether or not a destination “fits.”
I think keeping this concept in mind is the best way to travel and the best way to live.
What do I need? Where do I need?
