Rolf Potts and Tim Ferriss are two people whose ideas I have a lot of time for. Rolf’s book Vagabonding informed the philosophy of my travel in a huge way.

This blog post, I think, is very powerful. Nice thing is, you don’t have to leave home to change the way you think/do things/be.

An excerpt:

Scientific studies have shown that new experiences (and the memories they produce) are more likely to produce long-term happiness than new things. Since new experiences aren’t exclusive to travel, consider ways to become time-rich at home. Spend less time working on things you don’t enjoy and buying things you don’t need; spend more time embracing the kinds of activities (learning new skills, meeting new people, spending time with friends and family) that make you feel alive and part of the world.
