New environments make you see new things and see old things from a new perspective. They make you eat different from what you are used to, try new, maybe discover new favorites and miss something familiar. New environments make you learn. You learn new skills, how to survive and deal with new situations. You also hopefully learn about different cultures and peoples.
If you need inspiration for your future travels, or even if not, watch these videos from Rick Mereki. “3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage… all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ….into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films…..
= a trip of a lifetime.
Yes, I am at work right now, thanks for asking.
