My favorite travel memory is while cycling through Rajasthan, in India, with some friends.
After a long ride, we decided to stop for some chai (tea) at a friend's house. It was the kite festival season so the sky was full of colorful kites. Kids and family were gathering on rooftops and celebrating.
Travelling makes me realize the diversity of the world we live in, especially when it comes to cultures and life style. Having a cup of tea with some locals made me see beyond all that and realize that we are all the same at the end of the day, no matter where we come from, and especially that we do not need to speak the same language to travel and understand each other.
