How Could I Not?

I'll never understand how some people can live in the same place their whole life. I need to see what's out there and experience it. I feel that a lot of people are so ignorant and so far from being understanding because they haven't experienced the world. I want to engulf myself countless cultures and religions before my time here is over. I feel that is the only way I won't regret when I'm older, and regret is the thing I'm scared of most of all. I want to have a life full of adventure and stories and people I've met.

I'm planning on getting a tattoo on the front of my ankle. It's going to be a small world map. I think everything I've said so far explains why I want this. I'm planning on not filling in the continents though. I want each place I visit to be colored in with a different colour until the whole map is complete.

I feel the same way! Getting a job, and settling down in one place, without first experiencing what the world had to offer, would be the most soul crushing thing I could possibly do...

My sister is one of those people, and I have never been able to understand it?? I always feel most alive when I'm traveling and experiencing new things.

I love your idea for the tattoo :) I'm not a big fan of them, but that might be one I would consider getting! What's number one on your list of travel destinations?

Me too .... I've been in Asia and North America .... anyplace is good with me ...
