why travel makes you awesome The Time to be Awesome is Now People always ask how travel has changed me. If I look back at who I was before I began traveling and compare that to who I am now, I would have to say that travel has made me a better and more well- rounded person. I'm way cooler now than I was at 25 when I first left to explore the world. Simply put, I'm a lot more awesome now than I used to be. In fact, I think travel makes everybody a more awesome person. We end our travels way better off than when we started. I'm not saying this to be conceited or egotistical; I'm saying it because I believe that travel is something that makes you not only a better human being but a way cooler one too. The kind of person people gravitate toward and want to be around. You become like the Dos Equis guy.
