Recently, a friend told me that she dislikes travelling because “It makes her Ugly.”
Once I recovered from my initial shock, I began reflecting.
She’s right, travellers probably aren’t the best-kept people around.
Yes, our feet are perpetually cracked. That’s what happens when we spend hours wandering about without a plan in mind.
Yes, our faces are usually sunburnt to an angry red. That’s because the greatest adventures happen outdoors in the great wide open.
Yes, we don’t think twice about putting on a crumpled t-shirt and a pair of no-nonsense sneakers. That’s because the fabulous strangers we meet along the way don’t care what we wear.
Well, sounds beautiful enough to me.
