The way travel has changed me
I think that its impossible not to change if you travel. I firmly believe that I would be a completely different person if I hadn't grown up traveling. I grew up in an army family with two sisters. All three of us were born in different Countries and every couple of years we moved to a different place and started our lives all over. Now some of you might think that this must of sucked, but for me it was great. Each place we went to I got to reinvent myself. If I didn't like something about myself or wanted to try something new I was free to do it because no one knew me. I became really good at making new friends and adapting well to new situations. Travel was very much apart of my life even in these early years. I might not have been so adventurous had I not grown up with this lifestyle.
I discovered who I was at a time that I felt so lost. I know it sounds so completely cliche but I learn't who I was and what I wanted out of life through travel. At the age of 22 when I packed up everything and traveled across Europe, I began to see the kind of life I wanted for myself and who I wanted to spend it with. At the age of 26 Jason and I took of for a year to Australia and we were able to create deeper and more meaningful relationship together. You truly find out if your relationship is meant to last when you spend every single day together for a year in a foreign Country. Taking that year off also allowed me to step back and really think about the direction I wanted my career to take.
