Exploring the beautiful city Avalon, CA.
Roadtrips are my favorite thing in the world. That indescribable feeling of exhilaration and bliss you feel when every new turn is more beautiful than the one before. Endless beauty, endless sights, and a liberating sense of timelessness. This sensation to me is essential and soul regenerating. New horizons, vibrant nature, and an everchanging landscape as often as possible is exactly what being well traveled means to me. Essentially it means freedom to be free.
Adventure means fearlessness. Fearlessness to follow your passion, whether it be a feeling, an idea, or a destination. To be open minded to new experiences and to overcome all self doubt. To be willing to change and grow and become a better version of yourself. To find yourself you must first lose yourself to the latent possibility of your dreams and be willing to work towards making them a reality.
Volunteering at PREFER Rwanda, teaching the kids how to make snowflakes. Spending our mornings with 100 pre-schooler's so much energy, exploring, curiosity and non-stop laughter, couldn't have asked for a better experience.
One of the greatest joys of my travels and explorations is the beautiful, connections and friendships I make along the way and the everlasting impact they have on my journey and the person I am. What an absolute privilege it is to have these friendships in my life.
To live in dreams awake and to share these with a loved one is the best feeling in the world. Creating memories is what being well travelled means to me. Whether far or near, to have an open heart for exploration and to be mindfully present in whatever moment you may find yourself in. Awareness that frame of mind is everything and destination but a means for self discovery. Our Earth is a vast expanse of opportunity--to find its endless possibility we must first be willing to look within us.
One of my favourite parts of travelling when I am volunteering during my travels is the opportunity I have to meet children from all over the world. What an absolute gift it is to spend time and play and learn with them. So much laughter and curiosity.
