“To be a real traveler, you must be willing to give yourself over to the moment and take yourself out of the center of the universe. You must believe totally in the lives of the people and places where you find yourself. Become part of the fabric of their everyday lives. Embrace them rather than judge them, and you find that the beauty in their lives and their world will become part of yours. When you move on, you will have grown. You will realize that the possibilities in this world are endless and that beneath our differences of language and culture we all share the same dream of loving and being loved, of having a life with more joy than sorrow” – Kent Nerburn
One of my all time favorite quotes, an ideal to live for whether you’re traveling around the world or around your block.
