FtC: Do you see travel as a path to pursuing one’s dreams?
Yes, you will benefit from traveling in so many ways no matter what your passion is that you plan to pursue. Traveling puts you out of your comfort zone and opens your mind in ways you couldn’t while not traveling. Traveling could simply be that missing part to your life that could change everything for you in the best way possible.
FtC: What is one place you’ve visited that truly felt like you were in a dream?
One of the most surreal places I’ve experienced was definitely The Great Sand Dunes in Colorado, USA. It felt like I was walking on a different planet! It’s so unique. As the sun started to set over the horizon the sand started to glow bright orange. It’s hard to put the feelings into words! It was truly and experience I’ll never forget.
FtC: Do you believe we were meant to be nomadic?
If we humans were meant to stay in one place we would have roots instead of legs. The earth was created to be explored and experienced. Be adventurous. Put yourself in different cultures and lifestyles. It will form you into the best you possible.
