I am resolute that not much can beat the self-confidence, wonder, and fresh perspectives on life as a whole that only travel can bring about. Never will I be the one to say, “I wish I could have done that when I was younger”, because I’m doing it.

Instead of jumping into doing something I didn’t really want to do, I gained the courage needed to reflect on my desires and dreams and then follow them.
