an unconditional love that sees beyond the outer surface, accepting regardless of flaws, shortcomings or faults. It’s the type of love that everyone strives to have for their fellow human beings. This love is about sacrifice, as well as giving and expecting nothing in return. The translation of the word agape is 'love' in the verb form; it’s the love demonstrated by your behavior. Agape is a committed and chosen love.
"So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservatism, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more dangerous to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure.The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun." - Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
Agape is home. She’s been our home for almost five years now, and back in the Fall of 2016 when we first set off on what we thought would be a five year journey around the world, we had no idea how much she had to teach us! Since that first day we pushed off the dock and said goodbye to our family and friends, we have slowed down our pace quite a bit and we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. We hope you enjoy following along on our journey around the globe!
