Little did I know it at the time, but it was my passion for travel that would guide me down the path to finding my one true love. I never really considered what it would be like to live this life with someone waiting at home for me.
But the key word there is “chance.” Before I fell completely head-over-heels in love, I hoped that my roster would take me to every destination that our planes fly to.
The distances are the same as they ever were and we are reminded of that biologically; through the change of timezone, landscape, culture or climate.
When it comes to feelings, you can not fool the heart. As our relationship has grown with time, one would have thought it would become easier to say “goodbye,” but sometimes is forgotten that with time, feelings grow stronger.
We travel more frequently, faster, longer, further away, and much cheaper today, which has made this “small world” more accessible for the large majority.
The American and European continents seem to have moved much closer since we so easily get across the Atlantic Ocean in just the length of time of a good night’s sleep, but we must remember that it’s just our perception.
