My greatest travelling-rewards
are the moments when I realize, that I simply feel at home at a certain place, in a certain country and whithin a certain culture. This feeling might arise out of any kind of situation – it can be during one of this stunning, big, emotion-explosion-like moments, or simply out of everyday life. Like, greeting with a Texan “hi y’all!”, as if it was the most normal thing in the world and I never did say something else.
The difficult part about those experiences and moments is, that they are sometimes not so easy to find and definitely not to buy with any money, not even if you have a platin-level visa card (or, whatever the highest level is).
Of course, I don’t get this intense homely feeling everywhere, but so far, there is a clear tendency for this to happen, everywhere I bump into some wonderful people. And out of the about 800 people living in this very little town called Dawson, Texas, I obviously just found the best ones 🙂
