Learning about new places and people is what drives me most, an insatiable curiosity about the world around me is ultimately why I love to travel so much.
That's why I also felt compelled to figure out a way to make it my career, to live the life I dreamed of. I travel because it connects me to the narcotic hum of possibility that comes with each new day. I travel because it forces me to embrace the vulnerability of the unfamiliar.
Travel is the best school there is. It has taught me so much about the world we live in and a lot about myself. I travel for a great variety of reasons but it's the enriching experiences and unforgettable moments which remind me time and again why I love to travel! The vast majority of people who travel do so without thinking much about it. They book their tickets and accommodation in a destination that looks interesting, fly there, do some tours, eat some local foods, take a heap of photographs, and go home again. And, don't get me wrong, that's a lot of fun. But there might be a way to get something deeper out of your travels. That's to travel more thoughtfully — to think about your personal philosophy of travel.
Ask yourself these questions before setting out and your next trip might be more meaningful and even more enjoyable. When I first moved abroad and started making travel a major part of my life, I hadn't stopped to think about what drove me to do it — I just knew I really, really wanted to.
I was at the "ripe old age" of 25 and feeling like I hadn't taken the chance to go backpacking and traveling when I was at university or in my early 20s. I also thought that it was a bit of "now or never" (I was wrong, but at least it got me going). Those were some of the reasons that got me moving in the first place, but these days my answer would be quite different.
Now I want to travel because it's so much fun, it's challenging, it helps me learn and grow. It opens up my eyes to new people, places and ideas.
Life is all about learning. And certainly, sitting in school or reading a dozen textbooks are two ways of learning that are far from effective for everyone. But traveling — especially long-term and independent travel — is a way to pretty much guarantee that you'll learn something new.

I travel because to me, travel is the greatest story and I'm the author. I am able to take risks and make changes to my plan as I see fit. Traveling gives me a sense of freedom and adventure that I can't find while living in one place and working in an office.
A Recent Review of this guide
Daniel provided us with a lovely tour of Miami and was accommodating when my husband wanted to stop by a bookstore because he had finished all his books and needed one for the flight home! This was a great way to spend the day between cruise ship docking and late flight, including handling our luggage! Daniel took us to one of his favorite Cuban restaurants, which was very good and a new experience for us. GREAT GUIDE and great time! Tours by Locals has always come through for us!
