THE VOICE OF THE WORLD
Daring to see the world is daring your soul to find its center. There is nothing more educational or more enlivening than travel, and in this issue, as we share things to do and places to go from local hotspots to national terrain, I encourage you to get out there.
The very first time I understood the beauty and importance of global travel, I was 13 years old and my dad took my sisters and I to Epcot at Disneyworld. If you’ve never been to Epcot, it’s an amusement park designed around different places in the world. Each “country” consists of local dioramas, the culture and food indigenous to that particular region, and all the people who work in each respective country speak the native language. As an impatient young teenager, I wasn’t bored. In fact, I was fascinated. That experience sparked something deep within that made my curiosity to see more of the world too persistent to ignore, and so at the age of 24, off I went.
While I was fortunate enough to spend a few teenage weekends in TJ (Tijuana), the first trip I ever took on my own was Hawaii, and that evolved into visiting Belize, Guatemala, Ireland, and more. Throughout my travels, I have met some of the most incredible human beings, many of whom are now some of my dearest friends. The lightness and excitement of experiencing a new place, whether it’s a city, state, or country, opens your eyes to something more profound than words can do justice.
“I’m in love with cities I’ve never been to and people I’ve never met.”
This issue we travel through the city, leave the state for a Hawaiian adventure, and delve into local delights to inspire you to explore your own surroundings. No matter where you are in your journey, keep your mind open, your heart abound, your taste buds fluent, and your passion very much alive.
May you find the voice of the world calling.
