One of the best ways to learn about yourself is to travel and to make yourself uncomfortable. You can only do so much reading and conversing before it becomes essential to set out on the road. This is why I decided to drive across America with my friend Mike. We also decided to only sleep in the van. Mainly because we are poor, but also because we have always wanted to say that we have lived in a van down by the river.
On our journey we met some inspirational people, had great conversations, a few arguments, and saw some of the most beautiful sights that America has to offer.
I learned so many things on my time on the road, about myself and about life in general, and I just wanted to share two of the most important ones in this post.
