It is said that travel teaches us to look at the world in new ways, to see things differently than we do in our everyday lives.
Well, that is IF we leave behind our biases and preconceived ideas about what we expect to see and experience and stay open to what comes our way.
I believe that when we travel, we grow. We change. We become more in tune with the universe and our place in it.
I believe creating is the same. The more we create, the more open and creative our minds become.
If we leave behind our ideas of what things should be and open our hearts and minds to what could be, we are often presented with wonderful opportunities.
Case in point:

How has flexing your creative muscle affected the way you see the world?
