When asked the question “If you had all the money in the world what would you do with it?” I’m sure a large percentage of us, after paying off debt, would choose to travel.

Oh, the places you can go with a passport and plane ticket. Avid travelers are my favorite kind of people. Whether it be the weekly commuters to a country far far away, or the adventurers who yearn to see every inch of this earth while they have the chance. My point is people who travel have an insight to offer that you can’t get from your average Joes. Experiencing other cultures and walking amongst other people can only help you grow as a person.

Now if you’re anything like me, you’ve been lucky enough to see a lot of the world by a pretty young age. But you realize that this means you were unable to appreciate a lot of these destinations because of the young age you visited them at. Oh darn, I guess that means we have to go back and see them. As I’ve gotten older and can actually recall the trips I’ve been on and the experiences I’ve had, my already healthy dose of the travel bug has grown exponentially. A large portion of my day now is planning fake trips to distant countries that I will one day see. I will blame this on my father. His job requires him to travel to many different countries and meet very interesting people. Then he gets to come home and tell me all about it. This does two things; it makes me insanely jealous, and motivates me to be able to travel as much as I can. I was even crazy enough to choose my college major based on the probability that it would allow me to get a job that would require a lot of traveling.

It shouldn’t be a shock that doing something you love can make you a happier healthier person. So when I read several articles explaining why traveling can be good for your health, I was jumping for joy.

I’m perfectly fine if my primary office ends up be 45,000 ft up in the air. To  me, that would be such wonderful way to spend my work week

*Summer 2016 is a summer filled with travel for me, thats why I felt the need to write a vague but upbeat blog post about it. Hopefully I can get some good posts out of next summer. Thanks for sticking around.
