It's About The Journey

Life is a journey. During this journey, we travel. It can be a hard journey or it can be made a lot easier through a little forethought, planning and preparation. The word travel originated with the term travail. The journey was once extremely difficult. With advances in travel, technology and comfort afforded by ergonomics, it can now be an experience of pleasure and wonder. Often in our modern age, humanity forgets the beauty and enjoyment that travel can be due to the fast-paced mentality we’ve acquired. Whether we’re traveling for business or pleasure, we’re in a hurry. The journey needs to be pleasant. We need to pay attention. We need to stop and smell the flowers. If we’re wise or skilled and understand how to be in tune with the world around us, the journey can be absolutely memorable.
