Bitten by a crazy travel bug! Sometimes, think travel only happens in overseas flights, luxury hotels, long bus rides, cross-country trains! Associate travel exclusively with foreign lands, exotic foods, curious cultures, countless glossy magazines, alluring discounted offers!
But, what I find most compelling about travel is it’s adventurous novelty factor. Traveling propels out of mundane routines into relaxation, rejuvenation, new precious perspectives, exciting experiences. Everything, even laundry hanging out to dry, seems revelatory!
Travel writer Pico, “physical aspect of travel is not nearly as important as mental”. It’s wonderful to find selves half-way around the world, immersed in commotions of Moroccan markets, magical sounds of cathedral bells, echoing through cute cobble-stone piazzas in Milan!
An unquestionable curious sense of wonder, spontaneity, playfulness when we dream of travel. So, can we have a remarkable travel-like mindset without leaving home, our proverbial backyard?
If travel to foreign lands is a sort of passionate sledge-hammer to knock down tired mental walls, ignite the explorer within, with some perseverance we can get past these barriers, even at home. Often, assume today will be much like yesterday, but really no reason. Each day is full of pleasant surprises!
Simply taking long nature walks, opens a whole new world of child-like imagination, creativity for me. Reading, writing about travel is surely a stimulating break, an exciting escape. Researching delightful destinations inspires to desire! It’s the journey, the anticipation, not the arrival that matters most. Be fearless in pursuits of what sets our souls on fire!
