I’m glad that you decided to discover what “The Dust on My Shoes” means to me. For me, traveling is more than seeing the sites, it is all about the experiences! I love the adventure of discovering new places, learning new ways to do things, tasting new foods, trying to absorb the culture and most of all seeing what makes a place different than anywhere else.
Very seldom will my travel experience match my perceived expectation when I visit a site. Many times the magnitude of a site is so much bigger than I anticipated. Other times it is the small details that I see that can never be imagined without experiencing a site for myself.
The last part of most of my posts has a section titled “The Dust on My Shoes”. This is the section of my post that I have dedicated to sharing my thoughts from experiencing the topic.
My inspiration for the title of this section was derived from the following quote:
I feel this quote deep inside me. I have walked more foreign streets than I can count and I have more memories from my travels than the pictures that I have taken (hint: I take a lot of pictures!).
My original intention for my post was to make each post strictly about the topic and not make the post about me but I feel like it is my obligation to share my travel experiences in my posts. The things that I see on my travels leave a mark on me. I take something with me from every place that I have been. To not share my thought about each place in my posts “would surely be a sin”.
Each place that I see, each thing that I learn, the thoughts that I have from my travels, the foods that I eat, the transportation that I use and the people that I meet are all “Dust on My Shoes”.
