Foreign Places

I thought I was in foreign land being in Oslo, but nothing compares to my travel west through Norway, through the fjords. Being able to stand in a place where every direction you turn feels likes heaven, is life changing. As much as I love capturing the moment and scenery with my phone/camera, my pictures did not do this bliss landscape justice. And honestly, it felt good to be away from technology and just be; still and one with the Earth. As cheesy as that sounds, it’s true. I’m not religious but seeing the views I did today, I saw God; in the trees, the mountains, the waterfalls, the snow, the air. Everything was beyond breathtaking and the more I’ve traveled through this distant country, the more I’ve fallen in love with it.

As much as I’ve missed home and appreciated home since I’ve been away, seeing this scenery, in person, makes me realize how much we miss as humans, staying where we feel comfortable. I’ve learned, so much, on this trip how important it is to get out of your comfort zone and SEE THE WORLD. It may be scary and nerve-wracking but it is so worth it in the end, because as much as you think you know, being where you live and where you’re familiar with, you don’t really know shit about the world and about yourself until you experience life outside of your comfort zone.
