“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.” – Jack Kerouac

At some point in our lives we all feel a sense of dread. The one that sneaks up on you like a thief in the night. The one that makes you realize that life is short. It’s a feeling of being trapped.
You are trapped by your job, social status, or relationships. It is dubbed the mid-life or even quarter-life crisis.Go out and explore the world. Click To Tweet
I for one think this is a flawed way to view life. We are only on Earth for a short amount of time, why spend your time worrying? Instead, go out and explore the world.
The world is too big of a place to to feel trapped. There are so many things to do. So many places to discover.
I’ve made it my mission in life to travel as much as possible. I’ve visited places far and wide, from cities in my home state of Florida to cities as far as Tokyo, Japan. In each one I’ve discovered something that shows me the wonders of life.
When you travel, you get to experience cultures far different from the one that you’re used to. You meet people who have different values and customs, but you also realize how much we all have in common.
The world has so much to offer us. Why constrain yourself to the world you know? Take that stroll under the stars.
