Whenever I mention a trip away I’m always usually met with the same reply, “travel, while you can.”
My auntie for example has said it to me numerous times over the years. She’s always said she regrets not travelling when she had the chance as she now has my little cousin to look after, a mortgage etc. Things that make the idea of travelling more difficult, albeit not impossible.
I’m very much someone who loves to travel whether it be a short journey or on a plane to the other side of the world. I will always suggest for people to travel. It broadens your mind, your outlook on life and I do believe it can and does change you as a person. You will discover new cultures, new ways of life and meet hundreds of new people.
People need to stop going on holidays, separate yourself from the ‘tourist’ views of everywhere. Go somewhere different and submerge yourself into the culture of the people surrounding you. Learn about them and their ways of life.
“Instead of wondering when your next vacation is, maybe you should set up a life you don’t need to escape from.” – Seth Godin
I struggle to understand why people wouldn’t want to travel? Why not? We live in an incredibly amazing world, full of so many amazing places and things. Travel, travel and see them all. Travel to share your experiences with future friends, family, your kids. Anyway all I’m saying is: no matter what age you are, whether you think you can’t do it, feel something is holding you back. Forget it all and Travel. Think of the memories you’ll make.
