Being able to travel is a blessing in itself. It's always been difficult to afford airfare or even gas to travel across the country, but what you receive in return when you invest in a trip is something that you can't put a price on. To travel is to open up yourself to new experiences and to let go of your fears of the unknown. Traveling gives us the chance to embrace the world around us and for a brief moment to let go of everything we know. There is a sense of mystery in the oceans, valleys and mountains. No matter how far you venture through the mountains or scuba the coral reef, there will always be some hidden beauty waiting to be discovered. I hope that I'm blessed enough to be able to explore the parts of the world that intrigue me and share these experiences with the ones that I love.
