    I love to read this piece! Especially the sentence ‘you have not changed into a “different person”… like you changed “into” yourself. I can definitely find myself in that sentence. I got lost a bit since I travel and I do not always know which direction I have to go, but I feel more myself than ever and I wouldn’t change a thing – I can’t change it anymore anyway.

    I love the ending! That leap of faith that you take into your second life, the unconventional life of someone bound to travel (though getting more and more conventional, now, or maybe I’m too stuck in a bubble with other travelers/bloggers), cannot be reversed. That’s so true. I can’t go back to who I was before either, before I discovered travel. I especially adore your bullet point list. Nice introspection!

      Maybe it’s getting conventional enough that it is possible to congregate among travellers and forget the majority of the world is still grounded. I hosted a Hungarian blogger at my place recently and her way of life is still considered highly controversial in her country – even resented sometimes. Not that grounded is bad – that stability creates a community that grounds and shelters millions of people quite efficiently, right?
