A Bird Without Wings

By Tyler Young


Traveling is quite possibly the most exhilarating thing you can do in your college and post-college years. Theres just something about being late for a flight or running after a train that gets your heart pumping. Prolonging the inevitable; sitting at a desk from 9-5 Monday through Friday, can only be done one way, traveling. “Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”  Mark Twain explains it perfectly in this well known quote. I can’t imagine any other place I could be right now other than spending my time working and traveling throughout Europe. Travel opens your mind to new things through experiences and helps you grow as a person. If I could recommend one thing for anyone to do, it would be to travel!
