Travel is Like Love

I’ve come to realize that travel is like love. When you travel, you have this heightened state of awareness, in which you become mindful, receptive, undimmed by the familiar and ready to be transformed. That’s why the best trips, like the best love affairs, never really end.

Travel opens our minds and our hearts. If you love to travel, or just dream of someday taking a dream vacation, Speaking of Travel is the place to get inspired and to learn from others on how travel will impact your lives.

Leave No Stone Unturned

When we venture beyond the boundaries of everyday life and slip out of our cultural restraints, we find ourselves opening to new possibilities, imagining a life of greater meaning and seeing ourselves in a new light.
