When travelling, we encounter different challenges: confrontation with other cultures, perspectives, living conditions and, above all, with ourselves. The more unplanned the journey is, the more we are exposed to uncertainty and the unknown. The list of challenges on a journey is long and can be very individual.
The true treasures that we receive on a journey are not of material nature: They do not have shape or form. They show up in encounters, in insights about ourselves, in profound natural experiences, the shifting of one’s own supposed limits and so much more.
The return is a very important part of the journey itself. Here, the transformed “self” shows itself in its old environment (this can be related to the people from the home, a place, a work, etc.). The experiences of the journey take on a new quality and also want to change the “old” life. This process is not always easy and presents us with new challenges and valuable learning experiences.
