In the near-exhaustive list of things I love, there is a shorter list of things I live for. Among these are the obvious: my family, my friends and my dogs. But right up there with those is my lust for travel. In an ideal world, I would keep my home-base in LA but spend the majority of the year wandering the globe. With my wee pup in tow, I’d head from country to country, rarely landing in the same place twice. And when it comes to destinations, my motto is the more unexplored, the better. I love being the first of my friends to discover a new locale. Not to mention, the more exotic the setting, the better the Instagram posts. As of yet, I do not have the financial freedom to come and go as I please; thus I settle for heading out of town every couple of months. I’m taking off shortly and, despite the fact that I’ve visited my destination more times than I can count, I’m still looking forward to the trip with great anticipation. There are countless reasons I live to travel, but chief among them is that traveling makes me feel free. I never feel more alive, more myself than when I’m in a new setting. Not a great surprise given that all the day-to-day monotony and responsibility is left at home, but still. Travel to me is like living in a storybook. You’re not just looking at pictures, you’re creating them, walking right through them. I suppose it’s no wonder that I spend my life chasing that feeling. It’s totally doable, if you ask me. It’s just a plane ride away.
