Why Traveling Today Scares Me

This post is pretty self-explanatory. Ever since the Paris attacks happened it’s made me a tad scared to travel.

Just the other week North Korea announced it successfully detonated a hydrogen bomb.

Of course bad things happen in the world all the time, but this happened in Paris, not in some far-off city that nobody has ever heard about. What if something like that happened to me while I was out and about?

I know the odds of it happening are very low, but what if? I’m part of the millenial generation, which grew up in a post 911 world chock-full of threats, recessions, and environmental concerns. Truthfully it’s natural for us to feel scared.

I’m not sure what’s going to happen in the next few months as I gear up to go on my adventure, but I don’t want to make any changes to the itinerary at all.

There’s always going to be evil in the world, but that shouldn’t stop anyone from going where they want to go and seeing what they want to see.
