At this point in my travels, I don’t “hope” I’m going to see something stunningly beautiful no matter where I go, I “Know” I will. Looking through magazines and books, trolling the Internet, doing a bit of research before we head somewhere, we tend to build up certain expectations. This is perhaps the biggest reason that I don’t do much research anymore. I like crossing the border with as few expectations as possible, and the world never disappoints.
No matter where I go, I am always gobsmacked at least once, but often multiple times by the absolute beauty this world has to offer. It’s not just the magnificence of the landscapes, but it’s many times catching a moment such as: the beauty of a mother and child walking hand in hand, a boy playing ball with his dog in the park, or an amazing meal at an outdoor cafe. This is what keeps me going.
Here are a few posts I’ve done where I’ve been completely wow’d! Which one is your favorite?
What keeps you going?
