"I feel grateful that I’ve invested so much in my personal growth to reach the point where I can enjoy such a fun lifestyle. For many years I’ve had a career path that bestows plenty of freedom, but I hadn’t fully exercised that freedom. Now that I’m exercising it more, it feels great to do so."
This could be summed in the idea of strategically delaying short term gratification for long term 'success'. And success being what you want instead of beating somebody else.
That's awesome Steve. It's really inspiring.

I'm Canadian and live just 35 minutes from Toronto. I often find that Americans have a really inaccurate view of canadians, assuming we are all lumberjacks and use the word "eh" in everyother sentence. Are there any myths you'd like to dispell to your American readers who have never been to Canada themselves? I just think it'll be fun to hear your perspective, as this was your first time visiting.

I really liked this article, cause it sometimes remembered me on my owm traveling experiences. And basically, growth is everywhere you go, you just need to look out.
What i found interesting is that you were sweating in Toronto. I did some Celcius research (im german and we have that temperature system) and i found out that the Degrees you decribed were a bit lower than what wie have in germany, with the same humidity though. And that you are more comfortable with the very hot temperatures in Vegas. I didnt know that humidity was so much of a variable.

Maybe I've seen this a bit too much lately (aside: what is up with people visiting zoos in other cities while on vacation this summer?), but it bothers me when people who grew up in Southern California go to a random zoo somewhere they're visiting and say, "Well it's no San Diego Zoo..." The San Diego Zoo is widely regarded as being the best zoo in the world. Of course other zoos aren't like it! It's the gold standard of zoos!

Of course, on an actual serious note, your observations on travel were very much in line with what I tend to experience when I travel. However, I do usually find less-than-perfect accommodations to be part of what makes travel interesting, rather than something to seek to eliminate from my experience.
