Watch the video inspiring a travel movement: #FindAReasonToGo
We’ve all heard the question asked. “What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?” And while searching for nods of approval, we rack our brains and think back to the wild things we did as children. Back to the days we experienced the wonders of the world through our tiny hands and spent hours exploring our own backyards.
What’s crazy is what we’re not doing. The chances we’re letting slip away and the time that’s passing us by. Somehow, in a world where it’s so easy, we’ve convinced ourselves that doing something crazy is too much trouble, and we watch the dreams that inspired us as children fade away.
Those dreams that told us to go places and see amazing things, to meet new people, expand our horizons, and create life-long bonds with people so different their lives could only exist in fairy tales.
Isn’t it amazing that a world so giant becomes so small through travel? That you can fly around the entire world faster than you can drive across most countries. And that you can meet someone for the first time so far from home - yet it feels like you’ve known them forever.
So while surfing pages of endless information, you stumble across an image or a story that for a brief moment reminds you of whom you once wanted to be. And as you sit staring, you think to yourself, maybe this time things could be different. Maybe this time things could be better…
So the next time someone asks you, “What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done?” BE HONEST. The craziest thing you’ve ever done hasn’t even happened. You haven’t found a reason to go. But, you’re on your way!
