Insight - globe on eye

“Discovery is the journey; insight is the destination.”

–Gary Hamel
The stories below are a mix of opinions, thoughts, reflections and revelations from travel experiences. Some stories suggest an idea others highlight a discovery, experience, perception or observation.
Travel storytelling or travel insights is an interesting way to experience the beauty and ups and downs of the journeys done by different travelers. Never mind if you can’t take the journey, but you can always read and enjoy the travel experiences and explore places through someone else’s vision.
Matshona Dhliwayo says that insight–not intelligence or understanding– is meant to foster perception and contemplation. It is our hope that you’ll gain greater travel insights through these stories.
