Traveling: A Journey Of The Self

For a lot of people, traveling is about discovering something new about the planet they live on, coming across a new town, a new culture, a new language. But what a lot of people don’t realize is that traveling is also a journey of self-discovery. Not only does it give you the best opportunity to leave your worries and fast-paced life behind for the duration of a holiday break, but it also takes you through a journey where you can find your true self and learn more about who you really are or want to be.

Know yourself, Lao Tzu

 

You come back richer from your travels

Traveling gives you a change of scenery and lifestyle. But what you don’t realize is that the transformation is much deeper than that. When you travel you make new experiences that stay with you forever. Whether it’s discovering the wonders of a new place, or learning new skills on the road — you’ll be amazed to know how many people have developed life-changing skills such as a sense of orientation, budgeting, or self-confidence during their travel adventures —, you always bring back more with you than you put in your bag when you left.

 

Pack new experiences in your bag

 

You can recenter yourself

Traveling also gives you more time to think about your life and to relax away from the everyday stress. As a result, it’s not uncommon to use your travel experience as a way to recenter yourself around your primary life element. For those who enjoy the peacefulness of the water element, they know that they can find here a new approach to release their tensions. If you’re an air type, you’ll naturally choose holidays in mountainous regions where you can enjoy fresh air and breath-taking sceneries. Whatever your type, travel helps you to find your balance.

 

You may find your soulmate

As surprising as it might sound, you can find the love of your life during your next trip. Some travelers even report that they’ve been struck by a love at first sight moment when they least expected it, while they were visiting a foreign country. Needless to say that it’s changed their life. What if you don’t find your future love? Valerie Lewis reckons that traveling gives you the opportunity to meet several soulmates. She says that even though there can’t be a powerful love story due to the distance and the back to reality moment at the end of your holiday, the sweet taste of happiness you get is worth the journey. And who knows? You may get luckier next time!

 

Find love away

 

You find inspiration

For Ernest Hemingway, his inspiration came from the time he spent in France and Spain. Mark Twain echoed the thought by considering that travel enhances the mind and destroys narrow-mindedness and prejudice. In a word, traveling inspire you to find new and better ideas and also to become a better person. The discovery of new experiences — sounds, tastes; sights — creates new connections in your brain and sparkles new ways of thinking. The more you travel, the more creative your brain becomes.

 

If you feel lost and don’t know the way, all you need is to book a trip to anywhere to embark on a journey to self-discovery and self-growth. Become a traveler, make yourself a better person.

A Vacation Idea When You Know You Deserve A Little More

 

Some people make it a point to be extravagant every time they plan a trip. They stay in the best hotels, visit exotic locations, and seek the rarest forms of recreation. This is an incredible feeling, but most people must put a little extra planning into a trip in order to make it memorable.

Many people do however, arrive a point in their lives where they realize that they need more out of a hard-earned vacation. After all, this is what is at the heart of enjoying a break, an escape, and an adventure. Enjoying a trip more means taking every aspect of hard work out of the equation. Truly memorable trips are just that because of one key thing. There should be no hard work at all!

The reason many people insist on certain luxuries when they travel is to eliminate the sweat factor. Pursuing unique amenities is best enjoyed when a person knows that they have earned something special. Finding something truly special when it comes to travel means going beyond standard fixtures of luxury. It means zero effort in all forms of planning and arranging. It also means luxury that is ultimately private and personal.

If someone wants a truly exceptional and carefree travel experience, they seriously need to consider letting their vacation cares go by hiring a concierge service. This type of service is a bit different than the concierge found at a hotel’s front desk. It is a service that takes custom travel information and designs an experience where the client doesn’t worry about a single thing. All travel, dining, recreation, and festivities are the concern of the service.

Best of all, a concierge travel service allows clients to stay in luxury vacation villas ranging from penthouses to modern mansions. Groceries are stocked, private security is on-site, the pool is prepared, and there could even be a chartered helicopter waiting to go anywhere. The villa is completely private, and the client doesn’t have to lift one finger during the stay.

This is true luxury! It’s not about brands, expenses, and bragging rights. It’s about a person having the satisfaction of knowing that a true vacation reward was earned and experienced. A truly luxurious vacation happens when a concierge team does the work. Consider this option the next time a window opens to take the trip of a lifetime.

Travel Goals To Tick Off Your Bucket List This Year

Posted in bucket list, travel, travel goals
on January 17, 2017
January is a bit of a ‘nothing’ month, with the excitement of Christmas and the new year over and it’s back to work it can leave us feeling a little dull and uninspired. But actually, January is an excellent month to start making plans. You have a fresh new year stretched out ahead of you, so it’s time to start deciding what you want to do with it. Where do you want to go, what do you want to see? Here are just a few of the travel goals you could add to your bucket list for 2017.

Be A Tourist In Your Home Town/ City
Travelling somewhere new is always exciting, and when wanderlust starts creeping in chances are you start picturing all kinds of exotic places. But when was the last time you explored the place right under your feet? Everywhere has places of interest, there are bound to be sights, tourist attractions and things to do that you’ve either never bothered to see or haven’t explored in many years. If you live in the countryside, you could go on a hike, explore woods and go camping with friends. If you live in a city, you could check out the different attractions and things to do that it offers. Don’t just disregard the place where you live, take the time to enjoy it and see and do everything that’s available.


Volunteer Abroad
Volunteering allows you to help others while building your skills and gaining new experiences. Many countries in the world have different kinds of volunteering opportunities available, so decide on what kind of projects interest you most and go from there. For example, if you want to help abandoned children by building orphanages you could volunteer in Ghana. If you want to help with conservation efforts and wildlife, you could volunteer in Australia. If you already speak another language such as Spanish, you could volunteer somewhere like South America by teaching children to speak English. It looks incredible on your CV; you get to see a different part of the world, and it can give you a new perspective on your own life too.


Go Backpacking
Backpacking allows you to see the world in a completely different way. Instead of relaxing in a five-star resort, you’re mixing with the locals, exploring the area, travelling by foot and public transport. You can immerse yourself in a culture and get to understand a place in a way that just isn’t possible when you’re on a luxury vacation. You could sign up with a chain of hostels and travel from place to place, meeting other explorers and like-minded people. If you don’t have a whole lot of money, this is also ideal since backpacking is much cheaper than other forms of travel. If you’re new to backpacking, you could sign up with a tour group, or you and your friends could sit down together and plan your own route.
