We travel for fulfillment and inspiration to destinations - sometimes unknown to us. 

New experiences and journeys are absorbed within yourself.

 It slowly changes our view on life.


Your travel luggage will one day be your memories...

"The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it."
 - Jean Blake

How well can you see the path of your life?

Do not forget...it is your life.

"Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty." - Jon Krakauer

"We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls."
- Anais Nin
