I don’t really know where this passion to seek new places came from, but all I know is that I am in love with the feeling of arriving at a new place where I am completely anonymous and have no idea where to go or what to do. To go where the slate is fresh and clean and the possibilities are endless. From that moment on I am new again and I can be whoever I want to be. This is my quest that has taken me on so many of my journeys. It revives my spirit when I am down and keeps me alive and excited for each new day of exploration into the unknown. To wake up early and stroll the streets of a new village and try new foods and to speak a new language – all the joys of traveling abound and my heart pounds with excitement like that of a child experiencing Disneyland for the first time. I really don’t know what I would do if I had to stay in the same familiar place forever…but I pray I will never have to!
