Some people think I'm stupid for returning to the same place when travelling. "That's so boring, a waste of time," they say, but they don't understand- they see a thing and it's just a thing and they move on, whereas I get to see a thing time and again, and I start to know something of its life.
This is what I enjoy most with travelling, not through countries, but through lives. As I stay and volunteer in place, I spend time there getting to know the place and the people on a deeper level. I get a taste of their lives.
