But then suddenly you walk up a pair of stairs you haven't walked before and you see the water and the people and the skyscrapers in the background. You sit down on a bench and suddenly the sun comes out from behind the clouds, your favorite songs comes on your playlist and you smile, not because you figured your life out or realized what you are supposed to with it. You smile because suddenly the worries and the problems doesn't seem as big anymore and suddenly you know that even though you might feel lonely, you are not alone.
Suddenly you feel strong and independent and brave. Suddenly you remember that things will always be okay, and better than that, they might be amazing just because you are challenging yourself this way, just because you are taking these blind risks. And that is what traveling does to you. It challenges you, tests you, it creates you. Suddenly you know that this is where you are supposed to be.
