Travel is the road I take, to find my way back home.

Hey guys! So if you don’t already know what this week is all about, you should go ahead and read Sonali’s post(http://blog.roomnhouse.com/2014/05/travel-is/). Keeping in tune with the theme I’ll be telling you what travelling is for me…

 Why do I love to travel and what about it makes me happy?

– The chance to see a new place?

– Experience a new people?

– An escape from the mundane?

– The opportunity that it presents at times to witness something unique?

– Or is it the change of sight?  The new smells, colours, tastes?

– Something new my money can buy?

Frankly speaking, it’s a bit of everything.  Although I wonder if it’s just the fact that I get to dive into something new, that makes me travel? The fact that I get to leave my real life behind for a bit?  And when I really come to ponder on it, I realize there is much more to travel than just that – Than it just momentarily painting a pretty picture for me.

Traveling helps me stab all the negativity within me.  I often find myself brought down by the weight of the world. Depressed with where I stand in life and my relationships with people. I sometimes lose faith not just in everyone around me, but mostly myself. I get fed up with the pace of life. 

Traveling gives me the space I require. Gives me time to breathe and just be. Not worry about anyone or anything in particular. I can exist in a particular moment and at the same time fail to exist. Yes, it is an escape, but not a permanent one. It serves, as that much needed getaway when I am sick of the world around me. That much needed break from the life back home.

It is an escape, from what I am back home and the prospect of getting to know myself better and unleashing a better side to me.  I find myself a changed man of sorts when I am back from my travels.  I feel anew.  I feel like I can do anything. Traveling helps me find myself again.  It helps me breathe life and joy into whatever I do.  It helps me come back to all the things I love.  It helps me forgive and forget. 

It makes me want to form a stronger bond with people and things once again. Helps me create.  Restores my faith in the world and more importantly in me.

Travel is the road I take, to find my way back home.
