There may be 140 or 150 million blogs out there. Here is another drop of water. Like almost anyone doing this, I'm interested in making a connection with friends and, hopefully, new friends, who, like me, love to travel. But, if you're like me, you see travel as more than going to new places and having new experiences.
Not that there's anything wrong with that.
There is something about the process of traveling, of moving from one point to another, of coming to know a place as it unfolds before you, that resonates with me. It is the sense of our moving through our lives in compact, intensified form. It is living deliberately.
