"There's traveling around the world and then there's traveling around your worlds within. One you can do only once in a while if you're fortunate enough. The other you can do at any time on any day and each trip will yield you new and beautiful ways to see yourself, life and the immediate world around you that hopefully one day you can travel around too. There is so much within you to discover. You can begin a new journey by trying to see something in a new way...by letting go of something familiar and old....by doing something that scares you or have been putting off for a while. The most significant journey you will ever make is the one within. It will bring meaning to all other adventures you've ever had. Your heart is bottomless. There are always new places to find." ~Butterflies and Pebbles

“Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comforts of home and friends. You are constantly off balance.

"Traveling makes me gain back my confidence. It gives me more opportunity to appreciate other cultures: people, food and their own natural gifts of beauty surrounding them. It helps broaden my mind how much we can learn from each other. The friendliness and kindness of strangers overwhelmed me most.

Above all, as I dedicate this journey in praise to Him above, I cannot deny how much blessed I am." ~Leah C.
