I was speaking to a friend the other day about her travels. See, she had just come back from an amazing tropical island – one that pretty much everyone and anyone would absolutely love to visit. ☀️🏖

She regaled me with tales of her amazing adventures and partway through, paused to caveat one of them with an “I know this travel experience sounds really cheesy but…“.

This got me thinking again about the whole concept of certain travel experience being valid and others not so much. Like somehow, travel has evolved from this personally fulfilling experience to something of a unspoken competition.

Armed with a bit of free time today and a penchant to share something with anyone who’s interested in travelling, here’s a video I put together showing the real reason why we travel…

  • I totally agree with every single thing you mentioned in the video. Yes, it’s never about showing off and never about one is better than the other. It’s to discover that the world is a huge place and there’s so much to see. Traveling is an eye-opener to me. I see the culture, the people, what God has blessed them with and through all these, I learn to appreciate what I have even more.

      Exactly! We have such a huge world to explore, it’s hard to say you’ve ‘been’ to a place to check off a list… there’s always so much to see.

      So glad it resonated with you too.
