The NY Times asked an intriguing question of its readers today—Why do you travel?
Through the reader-submitted essays, which range from sweet to sad to factual, the answers really allow us a small glimpse into what drives other people to travel. For my own part, travel means a thousand different things to me. I travel to learn new things and to challenge myself. I travel to see different parts of the world and experience history. I travel for fun, or passion, or to just get away. I travel to visit friends and family, or to spend quality time with friends and family. I travel because it’s what I’ve done my whole life, and I hardly know how to be without it.
Why do you travel?
Bis bald, friends!
