We’ve all heard the quotes. “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.” Or, “it’s not the destination, but the journey that counts.”
As lovely as all that sounds, the reality is that when you’re traveling, the journey can be a pretty miserable ordeal. Screaming babies on 12-hour flights, hour-long airport security lines or engine trouble in the middle of that epic cross-country road trip.
Yet when you lay your eyes on Machu Picchu for the first time after that grueling three-day hike through the Andes, or dive into the cerulean waters surrounding your villa in the Maldives after 15-hours of straight travel, it’s all worth it.
In this CNNGo assignment, we want to know why you travel. Share your favorite travel experience by submitting a photo and telling us how the shot represents that memorable journey you took.
