Once you feel the freedom you get from travelling you change.
Your heart, your mind and your soul heal in some way only travellers will understand.
You may will change so much that you will lose friends or a relationship, but you will get so much more.
When the time is right, you will find someone, who knows exactly what you feel.
Don't give up on persons like them.
Perhaps the only way to real and rare freedom, is through another person.
