Looking back on life and why it is good, it seems to break down into three different areas; experiences, relationships, and accomplishments. Different people will put a different emphasis on each of these, but broadly speaking this is what we live for. For me the priority is probably the order listed, but the spread in emphasis is not very wide.
This week I’m visiting my friends and colleagues in Brazil and I’m reflecting on how lucky I am to have been given the opportunity to meet them. I’m also enjoying the different kind of time that I’m getting to spend with my traveling companions; one a long time friend and colleague with whom I share many stories, the other a newer friend and colleague that I’m just getting to know. I’m looking forward to adding to my experiences, relationships, and accomplishments. I think these are the reasons I like to travel.
