Traveling is Good for the Soul

In my junior year of high school, I had the opportunity to travel to different countries in Europe for two weeks. I was obviously over the moon to leave my home and have a fun experience. Little did I know that all it would take to completely change my life was two weeks.

I believe traveling, seeing other places, trying different things, and meeting new people are all aspects that make someone a better person. One of the biggest lessons I took away from this trip, was how to live in the moment-like really live in the moment. I will never forget walking up the steps of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris or going around the Ring of Kerry in Ireland. Traveling really makes you stop and soak absolutely everything in which I think is so important because in this day in age, we are so glued to our phones and can easily get carried away with what’s on the screen versus what’s right in front of our eyes.

Traveling makes me more curious about what’s out there. Traveling placed within me this desire to learn everything I can about anywhere and everywhere. Traveling changes our perspective on life. I know for me, visiting these countries made me way more appreciative of the life I have, and more focused to get the life I want.
