Hans Christian Andersen once said: “To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, To gain all while you give, To roam the roads of lands remote, To travel is to live.”

I live by this quote every single day of my life. Every time I am able to travel, I do it. I explore. I wander. I'm adventurous. I'm spontaneous. I stay curious.

Traveling isn't all about having money to go somewhere fancy for three weeks. Travel is about living. Breathing. Roaming. Taking in anything and everything. Travel doesn't have to take place on a plane going abroad or across the country. It can take place in your car with a group of friends, driving into the city or in your own backyard with your little brother or sister.

Travel can be anything you want it to be and is whatever you make it. So next time you're outside, whether it be someplace far from home, in your own garden or in the woods by your house, think about all of the fun adventures you can have. Live in the moment. Explore. Take photos. Document the amazing experience you're in.

That is how you truly live.

Here are some of my favorite travel photos:
