2014 is definitely a great year of travels. According to the latest figures from the UN’s World Tourism Organization, international travel is set to hit a new record by the end of the year with more than 1.1 billion people crossing oceans and borders. Growth was strongest in America with 8% growth, followed by Asia and the Pacific with 5 % growth and Europe at 4% growth.
So studies show more people are traveling but have you started traveling in 2014? It’s definitely not about the destination, but more importantly is what you get out of it that eventually make you richer in life! To paraphrase a famous proverb: “It’s not about the destination, but the journey itself, that matters!”
If you have not done much traveling, fret not, the good news is a new book “2015” is coming up pretty soon and we will have another fresh new book (new year) to start writing our life stories. You just have to take the first step. 🙂
A lot of people asked me where I get my travel bug from. Some people asked me whether I can get rid of the bug? The truth is, I can never get this bug out of me because it was from my beloved father! My dad is my life inspiration! He inspired me to travel, inspired me to meet people, inspired me to understand cultures, inspired me to appreciate diversities, inspired me to broaden up my mind, inspired me to be receptive to kindness and inspired me to drop differences! If you wish to know more about my inspiration from him, you can read more here: My Dedication
The truth is, this is a world beyond borders! There are no nations but only human mankind! My dad made me understand that everyone equally deserve to see and enjoy the world! 🙂
For now, I would like to seize this opportunity to thank my family, my buddies, my friends, and my colleagues for showing me support in my travels (basically for showing interest in all my travel stories haha) and giving me encouragement to start Travel Inspiration 360 this year, FINALLY on the 31 August 2014. You guys are simply awesome. 🙂
Year 2015 is a new chapter in our life journey, hope everyone can start a good chapter and write good stories and materials on your own fresh new page. To travel is to take a journey into yourself. May the world be blessed with harmony, peace, happiness, equality and lastly, cheers to more new travels, adventures, stories, educations and journeys in 2015! Yay 🙂
