True. I haven’t been everywhere, however I must admit EVERYWHERE is pretty much on my list. Now my friends and family love to joke and say “well where haven’t you been” lol!
It’s funny (to me) how some people upon hearing my adventures will sometimes make a ‘negative’ comment such as “why would you wanna go there” or “I wouldn’t go there” which always signals (to me) someone who is misinformed, closed-minded, or otherwise not a “traveler” in the true sense of the word.
With the exception of Antarctica, (1 of the 7 continents of which 5 I have stepped foot on…..see my “A Wanderlust Past“) there aren’t too many places that I would just turn my nose up to. For me, nearly every destination is an opportunity to explore new territory and hopefully learn something new about the world and in the process myself.
If I was granted one wish, besides winning the largest Mega Millions lottery EVER and world peace, I would use my wish to give folks a more open mind to travel and exploring the world so they could see just how much it expands your entire being (and ultimately your perspective on the world and the people in it). It’s like an awakening when you explore, not just ‘vacation’ but really explore and wander about in a foreign land (foreign as in – unfamiliar territory).
Go forth and explore or atleast start by dreaming of places to explore and you never know, the universe may just clear the path so that you can make it happen!!
