For the next month, I am joining in the fun over at BootsnAll and writing for the 30 Days of Indie Travel? Each day, they give you a prompt that you can interpret however creatively or practically as you want.

#8: LOVE LEARNING – Travel and learning go hand in hand. Travel teaches us not only about the world and the people in it, but also more about ourselves and our own ideas and values. What has travel taught you this year?

This was a year of travel in my own country. As a lifelong nomad, I have grown up with the idea that real journeyers country hop and fill passports with stamps,  and that is the sign of adventure. But the last several months have taught me that sometimes, your greatest adventures, are just right in your own backyard.
