    With the rise of Instagram, social media, and the ease of an inspirational quote maker, it is easy to feel less than if you haven’t traveled the world.

    That somehow you’re failing as a millennial because you can’t live up to all those “wanderlust” posts.  And who am I to say this? It’s not because I’m bitter I didn’t travel; it’s because I traveled (to over 30 countries, across 5 continents in 5 years).
