“Hey, do you have everything?... Your passport? And the tickets on your cell phone? Have you put the medicines in the suitcase? And the charger? Don't forget to let me know when you arrive! Send me lots of photos!” This is how it all begins, it never fails... Travel with friends, with family, for the end of your degree, for work, volunteering, an Erasmus, a honeymoon...

Traveling is breaking your limits, leaving your comfort zone, meeting new people, opening your mind, being surprised by every detail, growing and facing your greatest fears far from home. It doesn't matter when or where. It is now and wherever. It is the time to live new experiences, to leave as one person and return as another. We travel to change, and not of place, but of ideas.

What is more enriching than seeing the smile of a child from Africa who teaches you the importance of living each day as if it were your last, regardless of the material, living with a clear motto: “Hakuna Matata” And they don't care why whatever they are going through, that they are always clear that everything is fine and that life must be lived with joy and authenticity, as Timon and Pumbaa did.

It doesn't have to be a trip to Bali, or to New York, or even to Paris. You don't have to go far to know what the world is capable of teaching you. Imagine how little we are in a world of more than eight billion people and more than 190 countries. And now imagine how much you could learn from each of those hearts, and how much we still have to see from each of those corners. Traveling is not easy or free, but it is always worth it.

Traveling will show you places where you stay and places that stay with you. It is capable of leaving you speechless to become the protagonist and the storyteller. Let yourself be carried away by life so that it involves you in the adventures you deserve. Everything happens for a reason. For us, the world is like a book and those who do not travel are not able to see the stories behind that first page.

So, you, who are sitting there, don't let time pass without taking advantage of the opportunity to travel. Feel alive, know and explore. Pack your dreams in a backpack, buy that plane ticket, get out there and discover the world that awaits you.

And remember...HAKUNA MATATA!
