SHANGHAI . DUBLIN: How Travel has affected me. Ben

A friend from work sent me this link, her nephew has been travelling the world and he has written a response to a commonly asked question: How has travel affected him. I loved it and I think you will too.

    I read the “Shanghai” link and really enjoyed the perspective of the authors. Thank for sharing, it makes me want to hit the road!

      You’re welcome, so glad you enjoyed it. I must admit it made me want to pack my bags and take off (dogs in tow of course)even if it meant only seeing more of Australia.

    He’s had some really interesting experiences!

      …and he’s only 25! Amazing what you can do if you’re really determined and committed, what memories he is creating and all in the name of a good cause as well 🙂

    I liked it too, very much, but when I tried to leave a comment I found I couldn’t. Maybe you could pass it on for me – at least through Ben’s aunt?

      Thank you, I’ve passed your comment on to my friend and I’m sure she’ll share it with him.

    I’m not on Tumblr, so can’t say to your friend’s nephew how much I enjoyed his post – and how I can relate to some of the things he talked about (though I have to admit my travel adventures seem pretty tame in comparison!). Thank you so much for sharing this 🙂

      You’re most welcome, I’ve passed this onto my friend so that she can share it with her nephew.

    Thanks for sharing Sam – it really does make you stop and think about how you relate to people you meet in your travels and how you could make it a more rewarding experience.

      It certainly does and it can also be applied to everyday life, seeing the positive and possibilities in every moment – something I’m not always so good at.

    I read the whole post on Tumblr, but couldn’t figure out how to comment although I post on Tumblr too. At any rate, I clicked :like”, and I really did LIKE. What a great essay. I love that boy! 🙂

      Wasn’t it great? Certainly an amazing attitude towards travel and life in general.
