It happens to all. It happens to you. It happens to me. It happens to everyone else.
But only for a few people does it make an impact.
The impact is so huge that it defines the purpose of your life.
The feeling of exploring, getting lost in wander lands, talking to people who are not connected to you, people who don’t judge you , being close to nature, observing every little things around, doing things you love, discovering your own self, transforming into a different human being and when it all ends you won’t be the same person you were. That’s what traveling does to you.
And once that bug bites you, you just can’t fit into this civilized world of yours. You feel choked, you feel suffocated, you need to breathe, you need space and you need to live.
Traveling changes you in ways you never thought possible. It opens your eyes to the beauty of the world and the beauty of your own soul. It makes you realize that there's so much more to life than what you know. But the travel bug can also be a curse. Once it bites, you can never be content with the mundane routine of everyday life. The years pass by and before you know it, age and responsibilities make it harder to travel. But time is relative. The present is all we truly have. Don't wait for the future or dwell on the past. The moment is now, and it's up to you to seize it. Don't let the travel bug pass you by. Don't wait for tomorrow, because it may never come. The time to act is now, and the memories you make will last a lifetime.
