Hey Kitiara, this is a great read! :)
It’s an interesting and valid point, that it’s not about ‘finding yourself’. But rather what we’re capable of.
Love your examples about Bali and Panama. Certainly shows how our brains need to take a step back and learn the basics all over again in every new place we visit.
There’s so much value in getting our brains to solve problems we wouldn’t usually solve at home. To force us to pay more attention to the little things.
I have also found travel is wonderful for getting us to appreciate our own homes. To complain less. To see more. To enjoy precious moments. To treasure our family and friends.
Cheers for a rich and insightful article Kitiara :) Have a great day!
