Calibrating Toward Travel

Some folks might say that I have wanderlust. Who knows, maybe that’s true.

Colin Wright recently wrote the following about prioritizing travel in your life:

Calibrating toward travel is really about recalibrating away from things that are less important to you. It’s about prioritizing the freedom of movement and exploration, rather than spending all of your time, money, and other resources on the perceived security of possessions and locked doors.

Well said. I think this is very true for me both as an aspiring minimalist and destination aficionado.
