I’ve always loved traveling. Ever since I was a kid. Now, as an older kid, I’ve been blessed with an opportunity to live a dream. So what is it that I love so much about traveling? I could throw out a bunch of cliches about why it’s so fun. But the truth is I can’t explain my passion for travel. Maybe it’s a gene passed on from my father who loved traveling too. Could there be a wayfaring gene?
There is no way for me to define such a feeling. Is it the freedom? Most definitely. And some feelings aren’t meant to be explained but explored. After being cooped up in NYC, a city that I love dearly, I feel that traveling helps me find balance.
Wayfaring Soul is an outlet for me to share what I’ve learned while traveling and living in Thailand. And I thank you for taking part in my journey. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or leave a comment!
