You can’t go home again. But you can make the world your home.
Travel can be a broadening experience … going new places, getting outside your comfort zone … or it can be a way to go home again: back to mom and dad’s, or the old cabin in the woods you’ve visited every year since earliest memory.
Have you taken a dream vacation? What made it so special?
Did you rough it or travel in comfort?
What’s it like to travel as a man, alone?
Have you ever gone on vacation with small children? Accompanied someone on a trip they couldn’t take alone, and that you wouldn’t otherwise have taken?
Did you go on a pilgrimage? How was it the same as stories you’ve heard from others who have gone on a similar journey, and how was it different?
What did you learn? What expectations were shattered? Did you meet someone who has changed your life?
Do you have any particular phobias that complicate travel: fear of germs, heights, water, crime? How did you overcome them?
How are you different for your experiences traveling?
