It all began when a group of our ancestors traveling from point A to point B, to find food and more suitable climates made the trip out of the interior of the continent to outer destinations. I often wonder if any one person in the group was known as the travel consultant. There were no maps, and they only had their instincts to lead them. I would say who ever determined which way to go, would have been the travel professional. I wonder if the travel consultant were eliminated if the end destination was not suitable?
All jokes aside, travel from the interior of a large continent to other regions of land which presented different climates, beaches, mountains and desert had to be a hard journey. And even today, millions of people in the world duplicate our ancestor’s journeys by traveling from point A to point B. Except today, most of us return to our original departure point, but not all.
Decisions to move another country, city or state, are often the results of people traveling and finding a suitable alternative for a place to live. For sure this is the reason the country of Mexico has more US citizens living there than any other country, outside the US. Sometimes when you travel, a place just gets into your heart. You may return home, however, your thoughts keep going back to the locations which captured your heart. And before you know it, you have put yourself into a position to make the move.
After all, the heart wants what the heart wants. And when there is a strong will, a way will present itself. For some travelers, it’s more serious, and after the traveler has been gone for about two weeks, love ones’ receive a post card, which reads:
“Send my things, I’m not coming back.”
From the exit out of Africa, to the questions over the first born between Abraham, the hand maiden, and his wife Sarah, to the fight over the West Bank between Israel and the Palestinians. It’s all about the travel. Each major city is built on the secrets of evolution and creation. To learn the secrets, you only have to travel, and once you arrive in these different destinations, the destination speaks to your heart, and again for some, the thought of returning home or leaving the travel destination is too great.
Travel is a prelude to change. Regardless if the vacation is to strengthen the bond between the family, reduce stress, meditate on what to do with your life, or to mend a broken heart, travel is a good idea. And it is a known fact that the more stress free your travel plans, the more time you can spend thinking about you and your future plans. (This is one of the reasons cruises are so popular. Unpack only once, get off and on, a floating resort that has all the benefits of a small city.)
