Road trips are a way to get out and escape from reality for a couple of days, or even weeks. It is almost therapeutic in a way. I believe that getting out and seeing things that you don’t see or witness everyday is a very important thing that everybody experiences. Getting out and going to a place that you’ve never been, and a place nobody knows you and you don’t know them, almost as if you are getting a fresh start in life. The only thing that you have to worry about is people judging you based on your looks, but other than that they have no idea who you are or anything about your past.
I believe that it is important to leave your hometown and go live and explore different places. That being said, that does not mean that you shouldn’t come back to your hometown. Just taking a break from what you’re used to can be really good for you. That is why I am leaving Kansas the first chance I get. If you just stay in the same place your whole life and don’t change a thing, then it can sometimes feel like you are just reliving the same experience every day. No part of that is exciting, nor should it be like that. So if you’re looking for advice from an 18 year old, go out and explore.
Go experience all the things you were never able to experience. Nobody that you know is going anywhere, and nothing that you are familiar with is going to disappear. You can always come back to your old ways of living, but you’re never going to know what places are made for you if you never explore and experience the world.
