To find answers :)

I know I've found some great answers whilst travelling, but I also think sometimes we're each searching for answers when we haven't yet worked out what the question is....

Other than the thrill of experiencing new things and meeting new people, I think most people who travel are looking for "something." It's different for everyone, but once you put your finger on it, you feel complete.... not that you actually stop travelling once you've got it, because you can always expand on it... whatever it is.

The only way for me to discover who I really am is to be exposed to as much as possible, so travel is essential to me for that reason.

I really like ur answer! me too, i feel the same, "to discover who i really am", to understand myself completely!!!

hehehe... guess a lot of us do have a time on our travels that we're looking for "someones" ;)

I suppose the guy who suggested he was looking for "THE one" does have a point - people do tend to be more themselves when they are travelling. Apart from the fact you can't hide who you are over and extended period of time, I think many have the attitude of why bother pretending to be something i'm not when I'm not likely to see most of these people again anyhow.

yeah i agree with many of the answers already given, but most stronlgy agree with to find my inner self, and finding new people to talk to learn about cultures and everything else but what i like is getting away from the stereotype that has been placed on you like everyone has an image the banker, or the shy person maybe even the clown... but when you travel you are just yourself and you don't have to be a certain way.
