It was the end of my shift when I excitingly jumped into a conversation regarding travel with my patient and his visiting family. During our discussion, I discovered that he was going on a road trip shortly after he was to be discharged. I was so excited about his venture during his upcoming road trip due to what he had recently been through. As our conversation progressed, I discovered that he had never traveled more than a hundred miles from home and only travels that distance to see family.
After this conversation and many others over the years, it has surprised me how many individuals who do not travel. For the past 14 years, I have traveled to various destinations around the world and have enjoyed it so much that it has become my mission to encourage others to also travel the world.
