What’s the most challenging task for a traveller? Without a doubt – adapting to the ‘real world’. The one, in which, we don’t travel. The one, in which, we take on identities assigned to us. Become caregivers or workers, meet the same people all over again, and probably, never really leave the city or town that we live in. I think that’s really difficult.
I’m no optimist. Never been one. I guess, that’s why, this prompt doesn’t come easy. Sometimes, the silver linings simply don’t shine bright enough – to be seen – through the dense pocket of grey. And the whole world seems like its going implode. Fortunately, for travellers like us, there’s something to look forward too. And many times – look back at.
Neverland isn’t a fairytale for us. We’ve visited it – on countless occasions. And that gives us hope. Isn’t that what optimism is all about? To stay strong. At the end of it all, chances are you’ll make it through.
