For some of us, travel is a significant part of our job. And it’s not uncommon for people around us to ask questions like, “How can you do that?”, How do you maintain relationships when you travel so much? Don’t you hate it?”.
And many that spend their life on the road don’t have a great answer for those questions and, in some cases,even feel a little bit guilty as to why we don’t “hate” travel since it’s perceived as taking something away from our lives. Don’t get me wrong…poorly managed, travel can have a negative impact on the traveler’s life.
But I also find the following sentiment refreshing…
“Travel is at its most reqarding when it ceases to be about reaching your destination and becomes indistinguishable from living your life.” – Paul Theroux
