Now, more than ever, I feel an urgency to travel. To see as much of the world as possible while I’m still able.
There was a time in the past decade when I longed to visit Syria. The narrow streets packed with little shops, delicious street food, tea stalls at every corner, and the sheer amount of history, made me long for the day I could finally experience the real thing. And if I wasn’t a teenager without money or means back then, I certainly would have! Now, when I finally do have the means, there is nothing left to see. The culture, the history, all wiped away senselessly.
