Living somewhere is an entirely different adventure than simply traveling as a tourist. No matter where you go around the globe or how lightly you think you packed, there is one piece of luggage that nobody ever truly leaves at home – themselves.

As such, the gap between making a home somewhere new and casually visiting mirrors the difference between seeing and understanding.

Growing your perspective in this way empowers true personal growth.
