An image creeped into her mind and she smiled at the thought. “I met a cool guy in my last travel. It was kinda sweet meeting. He’s my style.” She shared to her friend.
“So, did you give him your number?” Her friend asked.
“I like to remember him as a sweet memory that I could always go back to and daydream about anytime.”
“I don’t understand.”
“See, I know I won’t see him again. If I find out later that he’s just not as cool or sweet as I perceived him to be once we talk on the phone or when I see his social media, my fantasy will be ruined. I want him to remain as a sweet mystery.”
Going to different places teaches me different things about life. The more I see the world, the better understanding of life I get. It helps me realize that life is beautiful and the world is wonderful.
During my travels, I try my best to savor each moment. I always catch myself in awe, admiring the places or landmarks I used to see in movies or read about in books. Yes, I take some photos so I will still vividly remember the places and things in the future and to share them with my family. But the more important thing I do, I believe, is imprinting my journeys in my mind and heart so they may last in my memory.
Beautiful experiences and memories help me get by when struggles and lonely moments try to knock me down. I may not recall all the details, but the feelings they bring surely hit the spot.
And what’s the best way to re-live those moments? I accompany my travels with good songs that make me excited and over the moon even before I embark on my journey.
Here’s the list of my favorite travel songs:
Note: I have this habit of playing Justin Timberlake’s Not A Bad Thing and Mirrors while I’m in the plane wherever I go, hence their inclusion in my travel playlist.
