“Traveling Turns Ordinary People into Storytellers”

The first time I heard this statement, I didn’t necessarily understand. I have been traveling for as long as I could remember. My parents, more so my mom, the wanderlust, was always planning a vacation somewhere; to get away from the mundane of everyday life in NYC.

From small trips to Virginia Beach and Myrtle Beach to further destinations like the Caribbean. As a kid, I always assumed everyone went places and traveled like myself and my sister. I was a teenager when I realized our privilege of having a mother who couldn’t live adventure-less. Who searched for long weekends to sit on a beach or bask in the sun by a secluded lake.

I thank her for my desire to explore this world. It wasn’t until I began traveling as an adult did I truly understand and accept the desires of being a storyteller. An obligation to share with everyone I met the beauties of this vast beautiful, mesmerizing, yet compact world with infinite possibilities. It wasn’t until I stepped off of a plane in Southeast Asia the first time did I silence my thoughts long enough to begin writing my story.

Obligated Storyteller

Just to be clear, there is no end. This is a story being written every day, never revised. Never made to start over or rewind. This is the kind of story where the beginning isn’t clear the middle is before and after the climax, and the end just doesn’t exist.

The kind of story not filled with pictures or words, but pure emotions. Because the moment you ask me how was your trip. The response of good or amazing or incredible seems minuscule in comparison to how said trip impacted and continues to impact my life.

That trip and every trip before and after defines my ability to express who I am, who I was and who I will be and that cannot be summed up by the answer to how was your trip. And I know you wanted a simple answer to a not so simple question, but I need you to go. Go with me, go without me. Just go! Go like it’s the first place you’ll ever go and the last place you’ll ever travel too. Go as if the world was standing still waiting for you to wake up for the first time and experience life.

Go! Then come, tell me your story.

    Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off
