So many inspiring and awesome nature pictures and animal videos cross my screen and leave me in awe of the natural beauty of this planet.
In my many travels I have seen awesome vistas and had unforgettable experiences. The grandiose mountains of Peru seen on the train ride from Puno on Lake Titicaca to Cusco. The breathtakingly amazing landscape of the dome hills jutting out of the Li River in Guilin, China. The French village of Rocamadour that clings to the steep, gruff rock, and towers over the Dordogne valley. And so many, many more.
Life on earth can be so spectacular, it can be so incredibly wonderful and awe inspiring. But you've got to get out there and experience it, see it with your own eyes. Armchair or screen traveling can only do so much to fill your life with a tiny and quick sparkle. For the real deal, the big wow, you need to let life get under your skin, get out from behind the screen, and into the thick of the world. That's when it changes you.
