Don’t fall in love with a traveler.
Because, yes, they can walk for days on end in the pursue of someplace beautiful.
They don’t mind sleeping on hard floors as long as the next morning something exciting happens.
They will happily endure hours and hours of discomfort if the destination is worth the wait.
They can sacrifice sleep, ease, money, time… pretty much everything for that promised once-in-a-lifetime experience.
They know that climbing the steepest hill brings along the most breathtaking views, that overcoming their fears will make for the best moments in the trip, that trusting strangers results in the most wonderful stories.
But, oh, if they don’t like what they see… If what you have to offer is not enough for them…
They won’t hesitate to pack up their bags and leave. They won’t even look back. They will book the next flight or just hitchhike to get away from you and disappear just as fast as they came.
They know something better awaits. They know because they’ve seen it all. And if they haven’t yet, they know they can… and will.
And they’ll miss you, of course… but that’s alright with them.
They are used to missing, it’s their way of existing.
They can miss you forever and never, ever come back.
