We actually preferred Crete to Santorini, @dante.vincent & I. And in this moment, when he took this photo -- I preferred Crete to the whole darn world. It all felt so far from election drama, far from the fears of terrorism, far from my home office and a full email inbox.... with my freshly tanned skin, the wind in my hair and a glass of wine waiting, on a sailboat, oh if you could only feel what I felt in this moment. If only the whole world could. Maybe it would be a place with more love. A place where we could all be happier. A place where we'd be quicker to forgive and slower to hate. Looking at this picture I realize how far I still have to go before I am the Global Citizen I want to be. But I also think back to who I was before I became an avid explorer. And I am full of gratefulness for the travel opportunities that have helped me grow. I don't ever want to go back to being the person I was before I was a traveler. But why does this matter to you? Because despite appearances I'm no one special and I have no more money or opportunity than you do. I just wanted this bad enough to make it happen. You can do the same. I promise. 💙🇬🇷
