Travel is one of my absolute favorite pastimes.
It has provided me with an opportunity to explore different cultures, meet new people, and create memories that will remain with me for the rest of my life.
Through my travels, I have also seen how people style their clothing - ranging from sophisticated simplicity to bold extravagance. Collectively these experiences have influenced my approach for formulating outfits.
Traveling has also impacted me in other ways.
Here are a few lessons travel has gifted me:
1. How to Be More Understanding
One of the things that gives me great enjoyment when I travel is connecting with other people in a meaningful way and understanding their way of being. In doing so has helped me appreciate different points of view as well as shape my outlook life.
2. Enhance Self Acceptance
As a child I enjoyed reading various fashion magazines as a creative outlet. I loved getting lost in learning about the latest clothing trends and beauty advancements.
When I began traveling abroad what I discovered in these publications was brought more to life. This helped me to develop a greater appreciation for different standards of beauty. Seeing women embrace and accept themselves also encouraged me to do the same.
3. Value Experiences
My love for travel has also helped to shape my personal values. At this point in my life, one of the things I value the most is being able to explore different places and create memories I will cherish forever.
