A mind-expanding, identity altering, challenge scaling action. Traveling makes you meet yourself! It forces you to face your insecurities, your incapabilities, it makes you question your beliefs and your patterns of behavior - basically - traveling makes your check yourself!
I have always traveled a lot, my entire life. My parents made me in Spain, and I am pretty sure my first trip out of Denmark was to Portugal as a 1 year old. Since then I have been to more then 20 countries and I am now approaching my 5th year living abroad and I still feel like I am learning every day. About my self, my relation to this world that I am in and about us as human beings.
But even though I have travelled a lot, and know the drill of starting over somewhere new, I will always find it somewhat scary! It is intimidating, because it is new. And new means you don't know what is coming. But what I have learned is that somehow, things will always work themselves out, the way that they were supposed to - so even though I haven't quite figured out how to yet - being present and staying in the moment will always reward you in the long run! That is my lesson this far in my young life...
So with that being said, here are some throw back memories to when I went to the colorful Caribbean <3
