I blame my father!
If someone offers you an amazing opportunity and you're not sure you can do it, say YES - then learn how to do it later
— Richard Branson
My passion for travel I blame on (or should I say am inspired by) my father! And I’ve told him that too. When he sees pictures of me in various corners of the world he just smiles and says to his girlfriend (of an impressive 83, ten years younger than his even more impressive 93) “I wonder where she got that from?”
For as long as I can remember I’ve had the ‘travel bug’. And before that when I wasn’t old enough to decide, Dad did. He was a ‘nomad’, as was his father when folks back then didn’t even travel, at least not very far, far being places like Turkey from Denmark when they barely had cars.
So it was inevitable that I would get that insatiable thirst and restless feet syndrome. I know that many of my buddies are similar. Travel broadens our horizons and puts us in touch with different types of people, cultures, architecture, landscape, animals and a myriad of other things. It challenges us, pushes us beyond our self imposed limits.
It makes us live a REAL life instead of a virtual one. For me, I’ve come to realise (only over the last years) that I need travel – it feeds and nourishes my soul, it fulfills my sense of adventure, exploring and getting new experiences.
My other passion is Mentor Coaching – supporting, encouraging, inspiring and boosting you during one2one mentoring sessions or group workshops. How lucky am I – because I can do this on the hop too!
Love and blessings Glen
