“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” – Anaïs Nin
And through this truth, we visit many worlds when we travel, some for a brief moment, and others for a lifetime. And in return we bring the best of these worlds to each other.
It's funny. Sometimes we travel across the world and meet someone from our hometown that we never would have known otherwise. Traveling is as much about meeting new people as it is seeing new places. I've traveled across the world to climb mountains and swim in seas, but what I brought back was a world introduced to me by the people I met and not the places I'd been.
As you travel and share your world with your new friends, try your best to make it a world they'd be happy to visit again.
