Day 3 Week 14 – Shifting Perspective

Travel day, no running.

Travel shifts one’s perspective, by choice or otherwise.  Different surroundings, people, time zones, or climates that could jolt one’s frame of references.  It’s both the challenge, as well as the reward, of traveling.

Challenge because the unfamiliarity.  Some would minimize the differences by staying at the same hotel chain, eating at the same restaurant brand, keeping the same routines.  In other words, standardize one’s expectations.

But what’s the purpose of traveling?  Why not stay home where everything is familiar and comfortable?  To me the shift in perspectives is not a risk but a reward.  It broadens one’s horizon and stimulating mental flexibility.  A chance to learn and perhaps grow.

What is your perspective on travel?
