For the Logophile in All of Us

Today’s prompt is the ultimate exercise in brevity so I find my usual introductory comment doesn’t really apply (although it’s killing me just a little bit).

Day 29: One Word

What does travel mean to you in one word?

won•der \ˈwən-dər\

Defined? A feeling of surprise mingled with admiration, caused by something beautiful, unexpected, unfamiliar, or inexplicable.

This is the gift that travel gives all of us. A sense of wonder at this beautiful, enormous and diverse world we live in. A world of infinite possibility. Whether the site of the Duomo in Florence takes our breath away or aura borealis makes us ooh and ahh while we tug on someone’s sleeve, like a child watching fireworks on the 4th of July. It’s getting lost in the world, open to the experiences, the people we encounter, the memories we make and the indelible impressions it imprints on our souls. It’s this feeling we crave and leaves us daydreaming of the next destination just beyond the horizon.
