Will travelling change your life?

My travels last year didn’t really change me much. I’m still pretty aloof and anti-social, but I like to think that travelling solo made me believe more in myself. Maybe one day, after a longer trip, I can have a “success” story like these people.

“I was freaked out before my first trip, too. On the plane ride over I kept thinking, “Why am I going to India?” I ended up having the time of my life and returned two years later. The key is to just go with the flow. Actually, don’t just go with the flow — embrace the flow.”

    Thanks for the link to those success stories. I think the length of a trip is usually what really changes someone — although it also depends how you travel (bapacking or hotels), how far you stray from the beaten path, and how much you’re willing to learn from the locals.
