|My last Mountain Bike ride of the season at Deer Valley|
One of my friends recently asked, "why are you headed to Burma (Myanmar)?" and my response was because I am intrigued! But really, why do we love to travel to places unknown? AND I am traveling for TWO WHOLE MONTHS!
Why not to Travel?---What is it about leaving our warm and safe home, easy daily routine, along with owning a personal car, that makes traveling so scary--because it is new and unknown? The exposure to diseases & germs, cuisine unknown, and scarey strangers contributes to the fear.
Why should we travel?---For me, it is the ADVENTURE behind the travel-- Seeing and meeting kindred souls, finding amazing people and friends along the road, feeling alive, and realizing that being a citizen of the U.S. is such a blessing. Why am I headed to Asia? I find development and infrastructure (my two fav words these days) fascinating in these South East Asian countries-- as things rapidly change.
