Travel exposes you to things outside of your comfort zone. It challenges you to look at how you live your life compared to others. It helps gain appreciation for all you have and adopt new perspectives on what it means to live a meaningful life. One of my favourite things about travel is connecting with people of different cultures and language and finding a common ground of appreciation for the handmade. Below are links to places I've had the great pleasure of visiting that continue to inspire me on many levels. I will continue to update these areas as the exploration continues.
