On Bravery: Travel

Traveling opens up our eyes and wakes us up. Travel helps us to learn about different cultures, traditions, religions, customs, and ideas. It teaches us to cooperate and compromise with others and with ourselves. It introduces us up to new passions and reminds us of old pleasures. And in the end, it makes us realize how good it feels to finally come home.

If you could choose anywhere in the world to travel to, where would you go? What would you see? Who would you go with? When? For how long?

Wish-list travel spots:

1. The Redwood Forest, California

Because I've never before been amongst a living thing that was over 2,000 years old.

2. The Grand Canyon, Arizona

Because any place that reminds you how small a part of the world you are is a good place to spend some time.

3. Melbourne, Australia

Because my best friend has lived here for years and I can't contain my curiosity anymore. She speaks wonders of it.

4. Greece

Because of their gorgeous beaches, passionate natives, and postcard-worthy architecture. The Greek culture applauds lingering time spent with friends and family: something I'd love to revel in. 49 other reasons I'd love to visit.

5. Spain

Because I feel like I missed it when I went to Italy (which is now one of my all-time favorite spots). Because of the museums, the spirit, the language.

6. Sweden

Because seeing the Northern Lights has been on my bucket list for a decade. Because education is free, Swedes have amazing political views, and families are treated with the utmost respect. The seasons are unlike anywhere else in the world and apparently, to top it all off, cinnamon buns are serious business.
