I’m not a travel enthusiast per se but I’m beginning to understand the appeal—on why people hop the earliest flight & travel around the globe. Despite my extreme motion sickness (as per my sister’s words “I’m very troublesome person to travel with,”) I don’t mind powering through just to get to my next destination and live other people’s culture, momentarily. I’m not from well-to-do family so traveling takes some time and some saving: our ways to make our trip happen.
