I’ve traveled a lot my whole life, so embracing a nomadic lifestyle was never an official decision, it just sort of crept up on me.
To me, a nomadic lifestyle is the key to freedom and personal growth. I realize it isn’t for everyone, and many people find comfort in familiarity. But with my personality, I get easily bored and start to feel trapped after staying in one place for too long.
Every time I move, I get the equivalent feeling of falling in love again. The excitement of going on a “first date” with a new city, meeting interesting new people, and opening my mind to new outlooks and experiences.
By constantly removing familiar influence and environment, my mindset and point of view are continually shifting, allowing all biases to wash away and personal growth to become limitless. In this way, traveling has shaped my character and expanded my mind in so many ways that I don’t think could have been possible by staying in one place.
