All About the Memories
I really love the title of this site. What came to me at 3am one morning in that name is the realization of what I believe. Life is about the memories created and not all about the process of earning the means to make them. This isn’t just some pie in the sky idea. It is how I have learned to live as a traveler the past decade.
For example, last year I wrote about a quick trip I made up to Salt Lake City with my friends. What was expected to be a simple weekend of coaster riding, turned into something I will never forget due to good company and the amazing beauty of one mountain. Some people don’t see the world that way. What a shame.
In the comments of that post one person said, “I’m happy for your deep introspective post, but maybe you should save to draft first. This has nothing to do with the purpose of traveling or providing any useful information for such.” If my memories and experiences that weekend have nothing to do with the purpose of travel then I have it all wrong.
My point is not to discount this person’s opinion, because it is absolutely valid. It 100% is. I disagree of course, but we can’t all agree about everything. I guess my point is to say I see things differently and hopefully you do to. With that said, I thought I would share a bit of who I am and what I believe. Watch this video I made for my Family Travel for Real Life presentation. It shows what life and travel are all about to me.
What does travel mean to you?
