If you were lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go
for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.
– Ernest Hemingway
Places have a way of getting under your skin. They tempt their visitors, entice them with unfamiliar sights, smells, sounds. They don’t loosen their grip, even after that return flight has long since departed. This is how travel enriches us. Enhances our experiences. And provides us with those memories that could only be had by packing your bags and setting off into the unknown.
I have visited upwards of 20 countries by this point, and lived for extended periods of time in 4 of them. Let’s keep going, shall we?
