Wandering is beautiful (Tolkien), travel is a part of you (Desai), and travel for travel's sake (Stevenson).
“Not all those who wander are lost.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, Author of The Lord of the Rings
You don’t always have to travel to places with a strict itinerary of what you want to see and do. One of the funnest ways to travel is to wander; “get lost“ as some people say.
Just pick a direction and walk. Stop by and explore a place if you’re feeling it. It’s so fun because you end up discovering beautiful places and experiences that you would have never found before. You’re following your heart, and that always leads to the most memorable of experiences.
“Wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.”
― Anita Desai, Indian Novelist
Every place you visit becomes a part of who you are. The things you see, what you eat, activities you do, and the people you interact with all get embedded into your memory. Some stick more than others, but either way they stay with you.
That’s the real beauty of travel. Even if you go for a short time, that time stays with you forever. It’s an investment in life that always pays off.
“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.”
― Robert Louis Stevenson, Scottish Novelist
You don’t need to have a specific objective in mind when choosing where to go. All kinds of travel are fun in their own unique way because you’re experiencing something new.
So where you go isn’t very important. What is important is the fact that you muster up the courage to do something new. It’s always scary at first but worth it in the end.
