"People don't take trips...
trips take people"
By LOST IN VOYAGE
WHAT IS THE GREATEST MOMENT OF YOUR LIFE?
It is not a difficult question, but to answer may not be easy. In my case, this is a moment that lasted 4 months, at 7 time zones away, in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula.
The Erasmus program and the desire to put myself to the test took me on a plane to the Mexican east coast, where Tulum stands out for its unparalleled beauty, with its important Mayan archaeological complex overlooking the sea. I spent 4 incredible months in Tulum, between my dream job and perfect company (yes, Federico followed me in mexico! ❤❤❤).
During the day, as an archaeologist, I studied the ancient Mayan people of Tulum, at night, under the Mexican moon, I enjoyed a lighter and more exotic version of my life, between a Mexican beer and a Latin dance. I could not know that this would have been the most memorable experience of my life (or at least, until now), that Mexico would teach me to get by on my own, to appreciate myself and always be myself.
WHY IS TRAVEL SO IMPORTANT?
An Erasmus, a solo journey, a trip with your partner, a trip with your four-legged friend …some journeys have an enormous influence on us, but you really realize it later, when you look at the world with more mature eyes, and you see what you didn’t see before, you see a different reality, but above all you feel in you that something has changed , in your depths.
WHAT ARE THE EFFECTS OF TRAVELING?
The truth is that a journey can change your life, like the months in Tulum changed mine.
The American writer John Steinback said:
“People don’t take trips – trips take people”.
There are many reasons why man escape from the routine, not just the spirit of adventure, a reason may be the desire to get involved, to travel to open the mind to the different, to grow in contact with reality told by books.
When we travel we open up to the world, we can change perspective and appreciate more the small details of our life.
