What is it about travel which enriches the soul?
I have a few thoughts about this:
- travel has the ability to take you outside of yourself.
- it connects you with something greater and more expansive.
- stimulates your senses. Gets you once again working instinctively as a human being, rather than an automaton.
As a Humanistic Therapist &Wellbeing Practitioner I know and understand the benefit of exploring and understanding who we are and why we do what we do. Dealing with any dark spots or traumas experienced along the way. Helping us heal and soothe the pains brought about by living and being in relationships with others.
Yet there may be times in a persons life where this introspection and exploration is not really necessary and all that is needed, is for you to find out what makes you wild about your own wellbeing.
Travel can make a person feel excited/anxious, a multitude of feelings. A little bit of travel can tell you a lot about yourself. Travel helped me to reconnect with who I was and what I wanted out of my life. It was my north star and I now have it tattooed on my wrist so I can never forget. ( The north star that is!)
And finally-we all know that there is nothing more fantastic, than standing somewhere far away from your everyday life, whilst watching the sun set in front of you, as you feel your worries slip away.
