In my 28 years, I have already traveled around the world. Literally. All the way around it. I love to to see new places. I love to just BE in new places. I also love returning to old favorites. I see the world differently now than I used to. When I was younger – high school age, maybe – I thought the rest of the world was so different. So….foreign! (For lack of a better word). And, it’s true. But the one thing I have noticed in my travels is that the rest of the world really isn’t all that different from the place I call home.
No matter where you are, the skies are blue, sunsets are gorgeous, the night sky is a mystery, and the ocean goes on forever. Nature is the great equalizer. Sure, the desert is a little…brown. And sandy. And tropical locations have a few more palm trees than I’m used to. But, it is comforting to look up at the sky and know it’s the same sky I see back home.
