Benny Lewis has been traveling the world for 10 years. In his blog he writes: THIS year (2013) I celebrated my TEN year travel anniversary with a much more visual representation of the top ten lessons learned in travelling the world, including the absolute best footage from my travels, and you can hear me speak out the lessons directly to the camera. Here it is. Enjoy!

  2. Be an imperfectionist.
  3. The magic happens outside of your comfort zone.
  4. The world owes you nothing.
  5. Get busy living.

  7. It is Ok to say I was wrong.
  8. The present is what really matters.
