The other day I decided to re-watch the movie “Eat, Pray, Love,” with Julia Roberts. . . right before my eyes, a curious thing happened, not only did I recognize that my life is nothing like Ms. Gilbert’s — or Ms. Roberts’ for that matter — but that her traveling experience was also quite unlike the one I’ll be taking in March.
As I sat down to write my grandiose opening statement, the one that would introduce me and my new blog to the world, I asked myself these questions: What is it about traveling that I love so much? Why do I feel the need to experience different places and meet new people across the globe? And, more importantly, how would I feel if I could never travel, again?
