I truly believe that traveling the world is one of the most magical life changing experiences that you can do in your life. Not only do you constantly learn new things, meet new people and taste delicious and sometimes weird food, but it also helps to put things into perspective and makes you really think about who you are and who you want to become. I stumbled upon these mini videos by Rick Mereki created in 44 days in 11 countries and couldn´t help my travel bug buzzing in my ears. It´s good that I´m flying over to Italy today, otherwise I´d feel compelled to just buy a plane ticket somewhere, anywhere, right now. Traveling is a way of life. It´s not the question of money or connections, it´s about having a dream, an outlook on how you want to live your life and going for it. One of my best friends is leaving for an around the world tour with her boyfriend in just a few days and I´d like to dedicate this post to them. Sophie, I cannot wait to hear about your adventures and discover some new places through your eyes. I love you! ;) Have the trip of your life!
