Do you ever feel distant from the real (insert place name here) when you are traveling? Like a tourist rather than a traveler? Deepening your travel connections to people will make all the difference. As an introvert, I often feel like I am on the outside of the action, but doing some of these things has made a huge difference. Human beings are wired to connect with one another, creating social, emotional, and even physical, well-being.
At least that’s what we all said to each other that time Beija started throwing up four hours into a six day trek in the Himalayas. Adventure is good. Too much adventure can be fun…the next day.
