Why blog? Why travel?

san-pedro-house-autumn-cottonwoodI just came across a blog post that posed an interesting question: Why? A few people left comments sharing why they blog. It’s well done and thought provoking.

Granted, it doesn’t have anything to do with travel or Cochise County, but I thought it would be an interesting way to stimulate discussion. Naturally, it follows that I will ask this question: why do you travel?

I travel because it’s good for the soul. and it expands the mind. Never mind that recent idea of the “staycation.” Even if you can’t travel around the world, it’s good to get away and see some place new. 

So why do you travel? Click on the comments button below, and share your thoughts!

    Travel is freedom! Being able to explore other cultures, meet different people and share the experiences of the world are all things we should never take for granted. Travelling brings new perspective to life and makes the whole world seem like one big family, which in essence, we really are! So, I agree, travel is good for the soul.

  2. Travel and blogging should go hand in hand

    How true, blondie67! I love the new perspective travel brings, but I think you only get that new perspective if you allow yourself to think a little bit as you’re traveling, right?

    And, Kevin, yes blogging should go hand in hand with travel. I’ve seen lots of great writing on blogs as it relates to travel. At the very least it’s a chance to share your experience with family and friends.

    Thank you both for the comments!

  4. Why travel? In search of people who are different… who speak differently, even within the confines of one’s own town or city or state or country. In search of experience… especially for little ones, who then approach people and philosophies with such tolerance. In search of wonder and adventure… mountains, when one lives on the plains; oceans, when one is mid-continental; valleys, when one lives on mountains; rivers, when one sees only oceans. In search of knowledge… so one can re-tell the adventure. And for the greatest reason… vision quest, where one begins to see just as much inward as one see with eyes!

    I love your question. I will be back to visit often!
