What I’ve Been Reading Lately- March 2018

Musings on Confidence and Travel

I'm never been particularly confident. I wonder sometimes why I then became so drawn to travel. As a child, I thought international travel was for confident people, and yet now, as a not confident introvert all I want to do is roam. I'm planning another trip soon.
