Why is travel important? Let’s think outside the box. Let’s consider a different type of travel that isn’t centered around a vacation where we are trying to accommodate everyone’s interests & needs outside our own. Ponder a “travel” that is completely revolved around self exploration & experiencing something outside yourself all in the same. We wear many hats in this life. Often the hats are assigned to us & we put the “exotic & desired” hats in a box packed away for us to only uncover by accident or because we are ready to understand the meaning of it. Maybe we stumble upon the box many times before we finally decide to put the hat on & embrace it for all it is.
Let’s call this particular hat the “vagabond experience”. When we put it on and close our eyes we are taken to a different place. The landscape is like nothing we’ve seen before. The sky is still there, the ground is still underneath our feet but it is all different.
“I am not the same, having seen the moon shine on the other side of the world.” – Mary Anne Radmacher
A vagabond is defined as “one who wanders from place to place without a home or job”. Yes, it is seemingly impossible to engage in this lifestyle for a long period of time when we all have responsibilities that may not allow it. But we are all capable of finding a window of time in our life to experience it once. Whether it is a week, a month or so forth… allow yourself to accommodate for your needs & wants this time around. Open your eyes & embrace the potential of keeping the “hat of desire” on for just a while longer.
