Monday Quote: Go Someplace You’ve Never Been Before

“Once a year, go someplace you’ve never been before.” -Dalai Lama

Exploration ignites excitement and curiosity in our souls. If I could travel to a new place every day, I would jump at that opportunity in a heartbeat. Sometimes we get so used to our daily routines and immediate surroundings that we forget there’s a whole world full of different people, places and cultures. I think that exposing yourself to a new place at least once a year is one of the most rewarding things you can do with your time and money. With the summer months quickly approaching, now is the perfect time to think about little getaways you can take with your friends to explore someplace new. Even if it’s just hopping in the car and driving for a few hours in one direction until you get to an interesting town, the feeling of being on a journey is always fun and exciting.

What adventures do you have planned for the summer?

Maybe one day I just have to go and find out.
