Travel (should) bring the unexpected to your senses, your perspectives and everything you know about life and what you know.  Sometimes travel experiences and the people you meet along the way can turn your world upside down. 

You might see a sacrifice at a Bali Temple or during End al-Adha in Muslim countries.  It’s also possible to be invited to dinner in someone’s home and be served unidentifiable treats.  There is also a possibility you’ll be in a place with no running water or indoor plumbing; perhaps there is no toilet in the restroom.  Your mind might be challenged well beyond what you consider “normal.”

All of the above and more have happened while I’ve travelled around the world.  In the western world, it’s doubtful you’ll experience anything but what you are accustomed to at home.  When you step into developing countries, be ready for almost anything.

Travel with me will always lead you to expect the unexpected.  I love change, challenging what I know, testing my limits and being amongst the unfamiliar.  The parts I love about travel are often uncomfortable for others.  Go with the flow, whatever happens, happens.  There is a general timetable yet no strict itinerary or agenda.  

Experience.  Simply experience where you are and who you’re with.  Love every bit of life while you are doing whatever it is you’re doing. Scare yourself and learn you are braver than you ever thought you could be.  Put your trust in someone you don’t know and rely upon the kindness of strangers.

Learn to love yourself, by yourself.  If you can be by yourself and have the time of your life, you can do anything.  Turn your world upside down then find the right side up.  Has your world changed or have you changed?  

Travel is more than a mere destination.  It touches your soul beyond measure.

What is your most memorable travel experience?
