This thesis explores the possibility that approaching travel from a depth psychological perspective—be it outward travel from destination A to destination B or a psychological journey inward—can contribute to meaningful psychosocial transformation, improve one’s life, and make one’s life more meaningful as a traveler seeking a deeper experience of self. Utilizing a heuristic methodology, the author presents a memoir that shares personal travel experiences—work-related and for pleasure—and the awareness, insights, and personal transformation experienced. The literature review focuses on the aspects of depth psychology applicable during travel and journey: dream analysis, active imagination, and the concepts of initiation, archetype, metaphor, and synchronicity. The depth perspective helped to uncover, analyze, and integrate the author’s experiences, resulting in psychosocial change toward a better understanding of himself.
