On 26th January 2016, over 7 years ago now, we began this new adventure, starting our Blog with the first of many posts…
Reading it now, it makes us smile: it was short, improvised, real amateur-style. After all, no one was born knowing everything, and we all must start from somewhere! It doesn’t mean that now, years later, we became sublime writers nor famous bloggers, but we do try our best, and we can look with pride to our progress made so far.
Our numbers say we have 360 posts, dozens of pages and categories, hundreds of tags, more than 5000 photos in our archives. We are regularly getting more than 500 visits to our website daily, which fulfill us with satisfaction and give us motivation to go on with our work. On Facebook you follow us in 3,000 and on Instagram in 30,000. But what’s most important of all is that what we write about made us happy. We’ve been nurturing our minds and souls, that can now tell endless life experiences and stories that we’ve been collecting over these 7 years full of adventures and new meetings.
One of the most fascinating aspects of traveling is exactly this one, meeting new and different people everyday, to whom tell and from whom listen each other’s stories, creating an amazing limitless vicious circle. Whether it’s about some advice given in a hostel about what to do around, or sharing important moments like crossing land or river borders, or just simple answers to e-mails on the blog to who’s asking info.
Our passports are full of stamps that witness our travels, and the number of visited countries grows, now over 50: recently, among the others, we had the chance to uncover amazing Thailand, warm Sri Lanka, adventurous Jordan, immense Australia, untouched Vanuatu and obviously our beloved Vietnam.
But we’d like to remember that traveling is not a race to the first who gets to 100 countries, as a matter of fact it’s all but that: traveling, differently from going on holiday, means getting to know a new country, a new culture, appreciate it, being grateful to it, and learn the most possible everytime, becoming in this way truly rich inside.
That’s also why we prefer to settle in a country for a few weeks or months, if not years as in Vietnam or Australia, instead of touching and go in a rush. Slow traveling is the best traveling!
Thanks to all of you for following and supporting us, as per our blog’s name we wish A Million Travels to all of you!!!
