Running along Lake Michigan early in the morning, I gaze at the crashing waves sparkling in the rising sun. The towering skyline of Chicago glimmers in the distance. And I can't help but think there are runners all over the world who would be jealous of this sight. And then I think...what are runners around the world seeing right now that I'm not? I may be seeing something special, beautiful. But there are so many other places that have breathtaking scenery.
Often my mind wanders to this truth. There is so much to see in this world. A simple run, a book, food... all these seem to spark that desire to see more.
And so I decided to write about my experiences with travel: the places I visit, thoughts about travel, past excursions I've been a part of, and the destinations I hope to someday get a chance to see.
