No matter where you go in the world, the people you meet travelling will become a huge part of your journey.
They will also become the reason to try to return.
It’s the people you meet travelling, who shine a light into the soul of a country you are visiting. It’s the people who give you a better insight than any guide book.
And sometimes, sharing a moment with locals, whilst completely lost in translation, has more impact on you, than anything else.
Their kindness, friendliest and generosity will make you feel warm and fuzzy inside. It will restore your faith in humanity.
You will find that people with little to give are the generous ones. The less fortunate are happier than the rest of us. You will learn that people in the less visited parts of the world are welcoming to strangers and curious about your world.
So this blog is dedicated to the people you meet travelling. We were lucky enough to capture a few moments on our travels and would like to share it with you.
