2 Travelers

Lately, there’s been a number of memes passed around this great clique of travel bloggers of which I consider myself lucky to be a part. The last – 5 Reasons Why You Blog – made its rounds in record time.

But I’m curious: what about 5 reasons why you travel? Our blogs often tell the day-to-day tales of our past travel experiences and worldly adventures. We talk of travel tips and the hows and whens of our travel goals. But what about why we set out to do it all in the first place?

I’d like to be so bold to kick off a new meme and tag Dave, Paul, and Dan with that very question: What are 5 reasons why you travel? What makes you want to drop everything you’ve ever known and travel long term?

To any of my other blogging friends – those who don’t mind me influencing what they write about – feel free to jump in and post your responses to your own blog. Consider yourselves tagged!
