I wasn't going to post today, but then the most amazing email hit my inbox. It was a post from the blog So Many Places, which run by Kim, a writer and traveler. The post titled, one year ago I left my job, beautifully describes how travel has transformed her life.
"In the year since I left my job I have traveled through 9 countries. I have been to the Galapagos Islands and the Amazon Rainforest and I have hiked through the Andes and the Himalayas. I’ve driven a rickshaw through India. There is so much more. Really, there is too much to tell. A thousand tiny moments: smiles, waves, broken conversations over chai. The small things, too mundane to write home about, but the moments that have changed me over time, eroding my hardness and softening my rough edges, opening me up to the world."
Seriously this is an absolutely inspiring read...this girl totally gets it!
So pop on over there already!
