Being hit with the “travel bug” is more than simply going to as many countries as possible. It is continuing your never-ending search for knowledge about yourself and the world. In addition, it is also to sustain the knowledge you’ve gained and new being that you have grown into through your travels. Being hit with the travel bug, then, is not so much about your physical location, but a state of mind that thrives off curiosity and perpetual self-growth. For me, being hit with the travel bug has led to many new friendships, incredibly insightful conversations, reading a ton of books, and great life changing experiences. In this way, I will always be traveling, and you can too.
