One Year Lived – Moving Around the World

Posted by Snap Greene | Posted in City Snapshot | Posted on 03-05-2013

GlobesIt seems I’ve come down with a terrible case of wanderlust. What’s wanderlust? An irresistible desire to get moving and travel! There’s nothing I like more than traveling and moving! It’s just so fun to learn about new places and meeting new people. Traveling can clear your mind, put you at ease, and even give you a little perspective. Have you ever dreamed of moving and traveling the world?

Sometimes you need to get moving to escape or maybe just travel for the sake of traveling. Maybe the time to tackle your bucket list is now. Maybe you’ve just got the itch to travel. For whatever reason, when you feel the bug to get moving, then go! There’s just something so wonderful about experiencing different cultures and seeing how other people live. Traveling not only gets you moving to amazing new places, but it broadens your view of the world!  The internet has made the world a considerably smaller place, and it’s more important than ever for people to be globalized and get out and experience it all.  There’s a big huge world out there, and it’s important to get moving and see it.

Now it sounds impossible to just drop everything, and go off to see the world, but it’s definitely possible. Just follow Adam Shepard’s example. In his new book, One Year Lived, he chronicles his journey around the world volunteering, working, having fun, and just experiencing different countries. Over the course of a year, he got moving to so many places, and experienced so much. You never know where you’ll go, unless you try. Just check out the places that Adam Shepard visited in One Year Lived:
