On a serious note, traveling, I have realized, gave me balance. And yes, the irony is I feel grounded and at home whenever I travel.
I sold my kidney to finance my backpacking trips abroad! Just kidding.
If packing up months before a trip and getting prepped-up 5 hours before departure are any indication, I'd have to say that I discovered such passion rather at an early age. But kids look forward to adventures! I guess such passion for me was pretty normal, except that early on, there were a lot of times when I would just walk the length of a dirt road (and got bitten by stray dogs 3 times already during primary school), scale the heights of dense hills and pick wild guavas by my lonesome.
