experience to go places and see things where something historical or amazing happened, or to see a view so wonderful that I cannot even grasp its beauty. When I travel I have enormous amounts of me time. It’s nice and peaceful. I can lose all my worries in the many different and beautiful places I visit.

The most enjoyable and extensive trip I have taken so far was in 2001 when I was ten; I traveled all over the USA for five weeks! Everything about the trip was enjoyable. Even getting ready was enjoyable. I had to take into consideration the multitude of different circumstances I would be in such as the weather, places I would visit, and what I would be doing.

With the wind flowing smoothly around me, standing inside a massive redwood tree hidden in time and safe from the world, and the cool nights and open spaces with nothing around me except a vast universe above my head. When I am on the road traveling from place to place, I do not seem to have limits. Nothing will ever be better than actually being there.
