The Delighted Traveler

Traveling is good for the soul. You can literally make your life more exciting and happy just by taking a small vacation. Travel far and travel long if you can. When you’re out and about in a new country, it’s smart to have some on-the-go entertainment options. For example: a podcast is great for keeping you busy while you are driving for a while, or even just on a long plane ride. Podcasts are really great because it’s like creating your own personal radio station and filling it with music and shows that you want to listen to. Time will really fly by with the right podcast. You can listen to fun music, interviews with experts, or cool stories. The entertainment options are endless. Also, always remember to treat your body well because traveling can really throw your body out of whack, especially when you are moving from place to place. It becomes difficult to maintain a good workout routine, and makes us slack off, then become restless. You may not get a lot of sleep, or you may just eat way too many sweets, but just try to be more aware of your body even when you only want to have fun. You can still get enough sleep, stay hydrated, eat healthy, use sunscreen, and exercise sometimes while on vacation so your energy level will be tip top when you need it most for your adventures.

It’s really awesome when you meet new people in a new town, but just remember to find a way to stay in touch with your family and friends back home while on your adventures. Sending a postcard will really put a smile on their faces. Sometimes we forget all about our lives back home, but our family and friends may really miss us if we go away for a while, so try to say hi every now and then. You should definitely seek out interesting and unusual places that don’t see much tourism. Many memorable travel experiences happen this way. Traveling to popular sites is great too, but the off-the-beaten-path trails may just be your ticket to beauty. Many people make excuses for why they can’t travel, but the number one reason is because they are scared. Most people who wait to travel will rarely ever end up getting the chance to. You don’t have to sell all of your belongings to travel the world, but try to get out a bit more than usual. It’s really quite amazing when you get out in the world a little. You can even start with a small road trip over the weekend, and then go to the country next door for a week. Taking a career break is possible. We aren’t meant to just work all day and sleep all night. There is so much happening around the world that we are meant to see. Go out and explore it!
