Are You Really Traveling?

Stop for a second and think about what travel really means to you. What's the first thing that comes to mind? How much comes to mind? Did you answer the question with a single sentence? Do you need more time because you could practically write an essay on what travel means to you? Either way, all of your definitions are going to vary from one another. That's something we've learned over time:

Everybody's definition of travel is different!

It seems to be that the more you travel, the more experiences you take part in, the more you learn, and the more that definition begins to reshape itself, or change entirely. 

In this blog post, and subsequently this video we put together (see link below), we encourage you to look deep inside and ask yourself, "am I really getting the most out of my hard-earned vacations and adventures?" 

Traveling and exploring the world is more than a passion for us. It’s a way of life. Every new country we visit and culture we experience shows us a new perspective that we have never seen before, and brings wisdom, joy, understanding and sometimes even grief. The world is a complex place, and for those of you who wish to uncover it, we want to be with you on this journey of discovering this crazy and beautiful planet.

If you find yourself in a place where you think that you’re stuck and want more out of your future trips, well, it’s never too late. Take a look at 18-year-old Justis, for example. 

Going from all-inclusive resorts and "living your best life" to seeking out more authentic experiences and actually setting goals to ensure that he got the most out of his experience didn't happen overnight, but it was a decision Justis made based on his desire to seek out personal growth through travel.

Use this video as a guide to seek out the incredible and break out of your comfort zone. Sometimes all it takes is one step in the right direction, and you could be off on a journey you never thought possible.
