Why You Should Travel Now And Not Later
Looking back, it was exactly 12 months ago – where I spent a year-long backpacking exploring the land of the long white cloud – New Zealand.
It drastically changed the way I see long term travel – I hitchhiked coast to coast in South Island, attempted to hike alone on a dormant volcano in winter, being homeless for a day and slept in a park, and barely survived from almost devastating earthquake in South island – something that I would never forget in my life.
“To travel is to take a journey into yourself” – Danny Kaye
It turns out to be my biggest feat ever. Something you don’t learn while you are in college. This is a life experience.
When you finally end your comfort zone, that’s when you begin to rule your life. You will ditch your fear and start doing things on your own term.
Go out and Explore While You Are Still Young
In 20 or 30 years from now, you may regret things that we never able to do because of our insecurity – it can be something for own good, but think again – we are living the life of what our society tells with pressure to conform and live within our comfort zone.
We may buy things in life and not talk about it when something new comes out, but scaling a 10,000 feet mountain or jumping off the plane is an experience of a lifetime that we could tell someone forever. It’s a memory that won’t fade.
“Travel bring Power & Love Back to your Life” – Rumi
Travel is wonderful in many ways. You’ll find a new purpose in life, meet people from different facets of life, discover unique culture or even learn new skills along the way.
Travel is Not Expensive Like Most People Think.
Most people will rant about the cost of traveling. Yes, we do need money for travel but it’s a general perception that being rich or being financially freedom capable of doing.
How to afford to travel? I don’t need the fortune to travel places I have never been, but learning how to save money while traveling and how to budget has allowed me to do that – travel does not have to be expensive and splurged partying on an expensive yacht.
Travel is possible for everyone. Break the habit – Save, plan, and travel wherever you want.
Spend on experiences, not on things.
