I think There's nothing like travel to sort through your life. It's that time away from the everyday life, that gives you the chance to decide what you really wanna do with yourself. And whether you wanna make some major changes or not. It's not just the time off. Travelling gives you a window into other people's lives, which can lend a fresh perspective on your own. For example, on my recent trip to kermanshah province, as I visited the shops at a village, I saw bakers, give and kilim weavers who seemed perfectly happy with their jobs as they were and I thought to myself, why do we put ourselves through the daily miserable grind? And that we should enjoy our lives while we struggle to make our life better and reach our goals. In a travel, you gain a new perspective on life and get to understand different ways of life and cultures. Basically you become less ignorant of the people and experiences around you. I think travelling helps you become less materialistic. Visiting places with different cultures and economic classes, make you have a new respect for simplicity. “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” – St. Augustine We can provide all the reasons in the world why we shouldn’t chase our ambitions, no matter how crazy or ‘out there’ they seem. But ultimately, the biggest barrier is usually ourselves. When we give ourselves permission to dream, and dream big, we realize that many of the barriers we see standing in our way are self-created.
