Traveling at its core is a self discovery journey. Any travel advice is relative to where you are in that journey and who you are undertaking it with
My wife and I have been long time world travelers. We were like that before we met, and we continue to be like that today. We have both visited over 35 countries in 5 continents throughout our lifetimes. Traveling is part of our DNA.
Today, we are in our mid thirties and have one child. We tell you this, not to tell you about ourselves, but to contextualize where in the journey we are. Because all travel advice is relative.
Enjoy your travels. There is a lot of world out there, it's up to you to discover it...
