Welcome to day one of the 2015 Indie Travel Manifesto Challenge. All this month we’ll not just be asking you to answer questions and challenges, we’ll be taking part as a company on our blog too!
So let’s kick this off:
“I first started traveling because of family – my parents were constantly on the road and instilled this into my siblings since we were born. Perhaps they considered it a right of passage, a life lesson, or simply a way to get us out of the house. I can’t recall a time where I didn’t have two or three trips in the coming months planned, whether they be weekend getaways, a trip to the cabin, or a journey overseas. It’s almost a tradition that we travel (and even today we trip together in one way or another consistently), and it’s certainly something we are instilling in our next generation.
I continue to travel because there is a small but fulfilling world out there that needs to be explored. Life to me is simply a smattering of moments and memories, and while I have many in the place I call home the majority of captivating or curious experiences seem to happen when I’m away from my comfort zone. There are no boundaries for travel – my next moment can happen in another hemisphere, country, state, or town. ”
