“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving”
As I am sure you are aware, I absolutely love travelling, exploring, and adventuring. I have a very busy lifetsyle, but always make sure I have time to do what I love most. I am an aspiring full-time traveller, who is determined to see the whole world. I have been to 6 countries and YES I am planning on travelling to a few more this year, and many more the following year. I want to be a traveller, not a tourist.
Here are the reasons of why I love to travel:
1. Meeting new people
Don’t be afraid to travel because of the unknown of meeting new people in places that you have never been to before. I absolutely love going to new places, primarily to meet new people. It is a great way to make new friends and to discuss about the place you have visited, perhaps for advice or even for help if you need it.
2. Trying new food
I am going to be completely honest, as I knew a few of you are probably thinking this, but considering I am fussy with food, as well as being a vegetarian, I love to try new foods in other countries. Whenever I go travelling, I aim to live my life how exactly the people in that culture would live their life on a daily basis. Obviously, I will not eat meat or eat the foods which I know I can’t have, but I will try my best to to live in that culture. When I go on holiday, I want it to be a whole new experience from start to finish.
3. Spontaneous Adventures
There is nothing I like better than taking a complete spontanous adventure. I like to just go with the flow and to see where I would end up. For me, being spontanous is doing something or going somewhere that is completely out of my comfort zone, or just something that I have not done before. If you haven’t figured out already, I love to just do things that are completely new to me. I don’t want to live my life doing the same thing every day, not that there is anything wrong with that, but I just want to do something different every day.
I didn’t actually think that this would be a reason, but it is. Every holiday that I have been on so far, there have been new types of ‘main’ public transport. By that, I mean they have transport that isn’t a car or train, like there is in the U.K. When I went to Amsterdam, the main type of public transport were bicycles. I kid you not there were more bicyles than people, which is probably why it’s named bike town. When I went to Budapest, the main type of public transport were trams or the metro as they called it. Most of them were above ground, although some of them were underground. I really enjoy trying out new public transport as I find it exciting and an adventure in itself.
5. Share your experiences
There is nothing better than travelling with friends, or someone you love. It is an incredible moment going travelling, trying something new, and having a great time. You can create some amazing memories and have probably one of the best times of your life. I usually create most of the best memories on holiday because anywhere you visit, it is so different to the U.K. which makes it inevitable.
