Traveling teaches you something every time you do it. I've been from one end of Europe to the other- and every nation is different. I speak a little french but not always enough, gotten lost on trains and in large cities, ordered foods that were in fact not appealing at all (and contained potential ingredients I am allergic to), rented rooms that were far too small, left clothes on the other side of the continent, and made a million other blunders and mess-ups along the way.
But the wonderful thing about it is that with every mistake comes a joy so great that you keep traveling and keep making more mistakes to feed the insatiable desire that comes with seeing the most beautiful aspects of the word. I'm just lucky enough to have a camera to capture it all.
