There are times when there are more questions than answers, and that’s okay. It’s man’s continuous search for meaning, purpose, his origins and history that make way for great discoveries. Mysteries keep us grounded, knowing we don’t know everything there is. The simplest of them — was it of ritual, maybe brought by necessity, perhaps scientific — feats of engineering and architecture, mathematical precision, human achievement far advanced than the time they were created.

Footnote to a post: I encourage everyone to travel on their own once in their lives. There are many ways to do this. I chose Contiki, a service that lets you travel with people ages 18-35 to destinations worldwide.

By doing so, you may not know it at the time, but no matter your destination, you would be setting off to a life-changing experience.

My trip was years ago now but I still remember getting to the Stonehenge site vividly and it becoming real for me. I still remember the rest of the trip as well, but perhaps I will tell the rest of the story another time.
