Why Do You Travel?

Why do you travel? 

To understand yourself outside of yourself. To know your place in the world. To realize what you can do, who you can be, and how you can help. To break through the bubble you’ve lived in–whether good or bad–know that there is more out there, there is more to life. To see the injustices, the beauty, the creativity, the sunrises and sunsets. To hear the accents, the music, the rumble of the city, the roar of the jungle, the silence of the woods, or the calm of the ocean. To feel the pain, the joy, the suffering, the kindness of loved ones and strangers. To step outside, around the corner, buy a one-way, ride your bike, take the train, or just take a walk. To rediscover your home, or adventure to a new one. Open yourself up and don’t be afraid to be afraid. To absorb as much as you can. From the architecture that surrounds you, from the artwork in museums, from the foods you taste, and from the friends you make. To look up. At the clouds, the stars, the ceiling. At the beauty of exploring a place you’ve never been. To look down. At the grass, the cobblestone, the sand, the snow, the dance floor. To revel in each unique experience. 

That is why I travel.

2013 Ford Focus Electric Car

It’s finally happening!

I am so proud (If you can say that about a billion dollar company) that Ford is embracing the change it wishes to see in the world. Ford’s new Focus is sleek, affordable, and most importantly efficient! I got a flyer in the mail today encouraging me to check out the movement online, but I’m already sold. Ford has always been known as a pioneer in the car industry, and now their legacy will continue for generations to come. It’s not just a smart move to go green, but it’s the right one. *applause*
