To travel or to run from something? To widen our comfort zone or to develop roots somewhere?

To travel or to run from something? To widen our comfort zone or to develop roots somewhere? Claire Samuel

I am reflecting on travel. I am aware of my capacity to adjust and adapt. For some weird reason, I find myself at home very rapidly in many places abroad. I do not feel attached to my country of birth.

Yet I lost of bit of my desire to travel to as many countries as possible. I find myself willing to grow some kind of roots somewhere peaceful. This is new.

One of my friends sees travel as running from something. I disagree. Travel opens our mind. Thanks to traveling abroad, I found myself. However, to travel and to live abroad is slightly different. I shall keep you updated about this as I prepare to move abroad for the second time in my life.
