Have you planned a trip in your head for years but have never actually gotten to take that trip? Now is the time! There are many payoffs to traveling. Here are a few:
- The best way to get wise to the ways of the world is to get out in it and experience things firsthand! You will learn so much and you can teach others along the way!
- Is your life a boring routine where every day feels like Groundhog Day (the movie)? Not anymore! When you travel, you experience tons of different adventures. Skip the fast food joints during your trip and taste some of the authentic food. Search out family-owned restaurants and give them a shot!
- Who doesn’t love a good challenge? Moving out of your comfort zone for a week can do you so much good! You will find yourself being more creative and courageous than you ever thought was possible.
- If you have a true appreciation for a specific writer or a type of food (etc.), you will have a much better appreciation of said subject if you visit a birthplace or world headquarters!
Find your dream destination. Decide where you want to go and turn a picture of this place into the background of your computer or cell phone. Think about how much fun you will be having there each time you see that picture! Decide if you are taking someone along or if you are flying solo. Never put off a special trip just because you may have to go alone. Traveling solo can be so wonderful because you only need to follow your schedule. Having family or friends along for the ride can be great as well! It is a win/win either way. Planning and researching your destination will end up saving you time, money and disappointment. Make sure you look at all of the places around your hotel. I would hate to get back from my trip and learn that my hotel was only a block away from something major!
How often do you travel? Have you gone on your dream destination yet?
