Looking for Adventure, but not too much Adventure!
When I was younger, 16-22 years old I would do anything, dream up any motive to get sent somewhere new. Cooking school in Mexico, visiting my dad while he worked in Japan, study abroad, accompany my grandparents on a business trip or tag along with friends. Those were really exciting trips and always full of adventures. Now that I am older, the trips are admittedly much tamer, which is just fine with me most of the time. I think there is something really special about travel when you are young and pinching your pennies - or euros, or yen, or pounds sterling or whatever monetary unit you are using. I wish I could bestow every young adult with the means to get out and go do what I did - visit 4 or more continents, learn another language, eat other foods, listen to different music, dance and love and learn in foreign lands. It makes life richer and more beautiful.
