The all time traveler

Because, you know, this is the fun in traveling, every time you go to a place you’ve already visited it can offer you a brand new perspective and feelings so different from the previous ones.

When you will meet a traveler next time stop and ask him if he reached the destination of his desire. I did that, and as an answer he told me: “Every time I go to a new place I discover the destination of my desire.”

Well I started thinking. How can that be? You think of a place you most want to go, you do everything to go there and you make the best of it once you reached it. At least this was in my mind until that answer. And I realized: from each place you go you take all, the good and the bad and you make that experience count. You leave your mark on that destination and that place leaves its mark on you.

What matters for you when you travel? Do you think of the culture side of your destination,

does it count more the food culture, or do partying and people trigger your interest? Any way you look at it, every destination becomes a once in a lifetime experience because it changes you in ways you never knew possible. Last time I went on a trip I made a big list of all the things I would like to see, we all know thatLondonoffers so many things. But to my surprise I never got to it.

I decided to dive in the city and see what it can offer me. And I can assure you I left London with some great experiences, maid wonderful friends and decided to come back as many times as I can.

Because, you know, this is the fun in traveling, every time you go to a place you’ve already visited it can offer you a brand new perspective and feelings so different from the previous ones. Never think of traveling as things I need to check on a list, the museum of something, the palace of someone, the restaurant I was told about, the club where that DJ plays. Think of traveling as being part of that community, your heart beating as once with the city. You, being in the middle of everything and breathing the excitement and joy of finding new places, new people that share with you their love for that place.

Traveling becomes a full experience if you do not make plans and let everything surprise you. That way you will become an all time traveler.
