~Just two weeks ago I was coming home from Costa Rica after travelling around for over a month. Now I’m home and back to work just as fast as I when I left. Back to the day job and the regular old routine. But while I was travelling I felt like time stood still. It felt like I was gone forever.
The worst thing about travelling… is the travelling part.
Line-ups to check your bags, then more line-ups to scan your other bags and then the terminal gate-wait. Not to mention, the line up to board the plane, the slow pitter patter of shuffling feet, the immigration cards to fill out and all the bags everywhere. Long hours on flights that can get horribly bumpy and cramped. Headaches and nausea can suddenly hit you. Sometimes your legs or arms fall asleep.
It’s the worst!
So why do I travel?
I travel for the stamp on my rugged, worn out passport at my destination.
I travel for that first glimpse of a place I’ve never seen before.
I travel for the story, the excitement, and of course, the knowledge.
I travel to feel the earth and sand beneath my feet. I mean; to really feel it.
I travel for the joy of travelling.
I travel for the most amazing experiences I’ll ever have. 🙂
These are the BEST parts about travelling!
Travelling is the best thing I’ve ever done. It’s helped me appreciate everything on such a deeper level. Travelling gives you something to look forward to and memories to remember forever. It’s extremely difficult to put into words how you feel when you have fear, anxiety, exhilaration and wonder all wrapped up in your belly together like a swirl of emotions all fighting to get out.
I always want to keep coming back to that feeling: Pure joy.
With each flight and bus ride I took on my journey, I would have my hands pressed up against the windows of the buses and planes with that silly little smirk on my face.
There’s a whole world out there and I just went and explored it. Well, a small part of it anyway. 🙂
Travelling changes you. It opens your mind to new things and new sensations. It brings out your inner child and taps into the fascination bursting within your deepest core muscles. We are not meant to stay in one place on this earth. I believe we were meant to explore and learn about our surroundings. How else will we prosper if we know nothing of the greatness that surrounds us?
Do you feel the same? Do you have a burning passion for travelling around the world, like me?
I want to hear your travel stories!
I also want to pursue a career as a Travel Blogger. It’s been on my bucket list for far too long. So here is where I can start; with you.
The Travel Blog will have to start with some stories of course. There’s a lot of research to be done. And there will be an overhaul of all my current content already on this tiny little blog. I’ve looked into more and more travel blogs to get some ideas on how to make money while you travel as that is what I’ve always wanted to do. The Freedom-Preneur movement is on an overwhelming up-rise because travel is becoming so much more popular among young people these days.
Over the next year, I will be creating an entirely new blog from a different platform. I’m really excited to start a new project. But for now, I will share some stories with you and I would really love your feedback on my newly discovered content as I try to rebuild my tiny blog after a long hiatus from writing.
So I hope you enjoy my travel stories 🙂 as I always love to share them.
Costa Rica was country #11 for me. How many countries have you been to?
