    I love to travel and truly admire your zest for adventure and how it changed you. My question is…is there a place you come back to? Every Xmas or December? A spot in the world that feels like ‘family ‘ you want to stay longer. I meet a few travelers that eventually found it…may it be in Goa, KoPangahn or Gili Air or Berlin…they decided to return year after year to this particular spot…and some of them settled down, made it their new home, became part of that culture and way of life.

    Travelling is not all about getting travel insurance for your benefits. There are other things worth doing such as the 101 list you have here. They’re really practical and have the ability to change one’s perspective. Thank you!

    What a great list! I love travelling too although my life is all about family and raising my kids now. But maybe when they’re older I’ll be travelling again 🙂 But some really great tips about life in general on your list!
