What’s In the Bag: An Introduction

Travelling is the most wonderful thing you can give yourself. And I can attest to this over and over. Maybe you, yourself have proved the same thing with your own travels. At any time or any age, journeying through new places proves to be a rejuvenating experience, a series of tantalizing moments, and often, a rebirth. What’s truly astounding is that this is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of what it can give you personally and spiritually.

Some people just need a bathing suit, a beach towel and flip-flops.

As much as I would like to provide general rules or guidelines with regards to travelling, the reality is there are none. Although we both try to conquer the world with every plane ride and bus stop, you and I are still two different people who want different things and desire different experiences. We have our own preferences. And you know what, its totally fine. I have come to realize that while similarities in our travels may be a merry product of chance, there are disparities with what we have experienced or what we want to experience in the future.

For this reason, I felt that I needed to let others know the people who share the same wanderlust as we both have. In this way, I am not the only person who can share my experiences and tips with regards to travelling. Maybe these people I have met and talked with can share to you their experiences, what they did, and show you a glimpse of their own personalities.

Tell me what’s in your luggage and I’ll tell you what kind of traveller you are.

One way to know a person is by checking the contents of their bags. In terms of travelers like us, the same logic applies.
