I read something the other day that has hit home. Satisfaction occurs when I create or bring something into my life that has a lasting effect. And these things that bring satisfaction will last well beyond the effort needed to complete them. This is what travel does for me. Putting together a trip takes a lot of planning and effort, but what is experienced has a lasting effect. Learning about different cultures, eating new regional cuisines, and gazing upon the beauty of new landscapes satisfies my soul. I hope you will join me on my adventures.
