Traveling for those who are seriously passionate about it, its not a luxury, but a necessity. 

It becomes a way to think and a way to live and breathe. Remember that the first trip that made your heart fall in love with the life of traveling? 

Remember all the events that lead to that moment?

Travel happens as a way of inspired action, its a need for change from within, a subtle but undeniable voice that screams for new horizons. 

Or it can also be triggered by simple occurrences in life, maybe through a friend who told you about a magic place he has once been, or maybe it a story you watched on TV or just an urge to go and follow the uncertainty of traveling, leaving your comfort zone behind and embracing all of your fears.

No matter what have you fallen in love with the idea of wondering our planet in search of the new, traveling for those who once experienced, can never mean the same thing.
