Traveling has always been something that I have wanted my life to revolve around. I have been fortunate enough to do some traveling ever since I was a little boy. For this, I owe a huge thank you to my father.
I have been anywhere from immense tropic islands such as Jamaica and the Cyclades to vastly industrialized and technologically innovative regions which boast authentic culture and traditional flavor like Japan. There are so many places in this world that offer new experiences to those who wish to seek and take on its wondrous opportunities.

Traveling, however, is often times sought as a luxury because you have to have the time, and, not to mention, the money. Without these two important components, you might as well forget about it.
Today is really a new age; however, and people are beginning to balance the work/travel life on-the-go using social media to their full advantage. The opportunities that lie before your fingertips are ever-so-great, yet it seems only a handful of people are taking advantage of this. In my eyes, this would be the ideal life; working not from home or the office, but traveling and working on-the-go at the expense of no one, but yourself.

For me, traveling around the world is something that is extremely important. I believe we were put on this Earth for many reasons, of course, but we must take the time we have been gracefully granted to explore all the hidden wonders that God, Mother Nature, and those that came before us have created.
Life is too short not connect with other humans who are unlike ourselves. By doing so, it will allow us to find and resonate with any gray areas in our lives that we have been searching for, but have been unable to find. Exploring new places and experiencing new cultures we are not normally accustomed to will only allow for us to learn and to grow forward as an individual seeking to make a positive impact on this Earth.

Our planet is so immense and we don't even know a majority of what is even out there. To illustrate this point further, the ocean covers roughly 70% of the Earth's surface, yet 95% of it remains unexplored.
Can you guys imagine what is out there that we don't even know exists?
It is truly mind blowing to me, but that is one reason why we are here today- to explore and discover the unknowns of our very own celestial body.
We too can uncover aspects of our world just like our ancient ancestors did and continue to lay the foundation for generations to come. Life is just such a glorious phenomenon and we often times take things for granted.
We have to remember and realize that life is not something that is guaranteed. We have this preconceived notion that there will be tomorrow or a next five minutes, yet there is simply no evidence to prove this.
Live every moment with passion, even if it is a painful one. Use these moments, even hardships and obstacles, as an opportunity to learn and grow upward.
