25 Ways Travel Has Changed My life Forever

I am often asked how it feels to travel the world, and my first response is, "traveling changed my life". Travel gave me purpose. It proved to me that I was in fact fearless and a rebel in the uniform society we live in. Society tries to put us in a box working 9-5's and talks us out of taking our paid vacation days all in fear that our work will pile up and others would be upset with us because we left them with our dirty work. Not only that, society makes us feel that we have to own a million unnecessary things - cars, designer bags and shoes, huge house, etc. This is where the bulk of our money goes, and that is why many people will never feel that they can financially afford to travel or discover their purpose and happiness.

I have news for you, when you die, none of that will go to the grave with you. Why not die with memories and a sense of feeling that you conquered the world and your fears? Find out who you really are outside of the world and step out on faith.

Flying Tiger Copenhagen Kyoto Japan's #1 Stationary Store

If you are visiting Kyoto, Japan, I beg you to stop into Flying Tiger Copenhagen. You will not regret it. You will come back and thank me. The store is packed with two floors filled with souvenirs and treasures to decorate your bedroom, dorm room, kitchen, bathroom, desk, and even your backyard! I warn you, you better grab a basket at the front door because I can guarantee you that you will leave the store with more than you had in mind. The third floor has a playroom for the kiddos as well as a snack bar to grab a bite to eat and play some table tennis.

Flying Tiger Copenhagen stores are popping up all throughout Japan. Currently they have locations in Kyoto, Osaka, and Tokyo. The Osaka store had to close down twice due to running out of merchandise. That should tell you how popular this store is.

The best part about Flying Tiger is that the average price of their items are between ¥200-¥400. The least expensive item you will find is ¥100. You will find a few items that are priced between ¥1500-¥2000. Nothing  I purchased cost over ¥500. 

Popular items you can find in the store are stationary items, room decor, computer and luggage goods, and jewelry accessories.
