When I was a sophomore in college, I packed up my bags and traveled to Australia for a three-month study abroad program. While I was there, we spent a lot of time in The Outback, or the bush, with an aboriginal guide, Peter. He told us something that became the theme for the trip, and my future travels.
“The journey is the destination,” he said.
Not only can this phrase be applied to travel and adventure, but also to everyday life. It reminds me to slow down and not only to focus on the end point, but also the journey that is bringing me there. Without the journey, there is no destination.
