I knew it before leaving Canada. I felt it on the road. It hit me hard when I arrived in Laos. My quest is not to see more and more countries in Asia “while I’m here.” Nor travel without an end. I do not want to be an eternal tourist. My desire is live in a different part of the world than the place I grew up with my future lover. This statement is so simple but extremely powerful. And it resonates more than ever inside of me.
