Everyone who knows me would be able to answer the question "What is freedom for Aurélie?" Everyone (including me) would answer with no second thoughts: travelling!
Yes, it’s that simple.
For me, the best way to feel free is to travel. I don’t even need to go far. Just the feeling that I’m seeing something for the first time is enough to make me feel free.
Sometimes, when I’m in France, I love just to take my dog out and go to new places in my city. It’s a small city but I realized that I actually don’t even know half of it.
Being in a plane means the start of a very new trip, meeting new people, seeing new places, trying out new food, enjoying a new adventure.
I love nature (and I only realized that a few months ago). I love walking in the forest, going to the top of a pyramid, a mountain, a volcano, even if I’m really NOT sporty at all! I feel free when I’m on the top and I just stay there to admire the view. Our planet is simply amazing and beautiful!
Sunsets are also one of my favorite things in the world.
For me, travelling is the best way to be free; you’re free to go wherever you want, to talk to whoever you want, and to try different things that you wouldn’t do normally.
Travelling is like living a different life for a few days or weeks, and this is the best feeling ever.
