The Travel Bug
It seems that I may have been attacked by the travel bug a few years ago. Ever since I finished my year 12 VCE I have begun travelling around the world. I'm forever dreaming of where I'll go next, and trying to save money so that I can afford the luxury of travelling. In the past couple of years I have mainly been travelling through South East Asia. However, hopefully sometime soon I will venture further out into Africa and Central America.
So why do I love to travel? I think the world has so much to offer, if only we reach out and grasp it. Every country, every culture, every religion, every person has something unique and valuable to offer. And it is only through travelling or living in another country that you can learn about and grow appreciation for the wonderful things in this world. Living in a multicultural society in Melbourne, I think it is particularly important to be open-minded and accepting of all things different to my own way of doing things. I feel that when I travel, I get a tiny glimpse into different ways of living and doing things, all equal in their own rights.
Travelling to new places is exciting, uplifting, and makes me happy. So for the rest of my life, I will continue to travel and explore the world as often as I can.
