why we value traveling
One of the first topics Ryan + I connected about when we first met was travel. We both had traveled a good bit on our own before meeting each other, so we immediately bonded over our love for exploring different parts of the world.
Fast forward two years after we met — we both decided to leave Hawaii and travel South America for ten months. And I’m telling you, that trip completely transformed our relationship and truly strengthened our faith and our vision for life together. It was on this trip that Ryan proposed and I said, “HECK YES!” to the best decision of my life.
You see, traveling is so much more to us than visiting a new place or checking off another country to see. It’s an opening up of who we are; it’s letting go of our comfort zones; it’s putting ourselves in a place of humility as we experience and live a way of life that is foreign to our own; it’s being way more present and way less prepared.⠀
