The sheer beauty of the world
“The most beautiful in the world is, of course, the world itself.”
Have you wondered at just how much beauty and perfection the world around us wears as its mantle? The only way of seeing this great, diversified beauty is by traveling. Every nook and cranny of the beautiful planet has some unfound beauty that can only be unraveled by travel.
Let travel be your mantra
“Work, Travel, Save, Repeat”
If you need motivation to really live your life, then let travel be it. Reinvent yourself, focus on working towards something that will truly make you live – for something that is all about you and you will see that everything will fall into place.
Live in the moment
“What you’ve done becomes the judge of what you’re going to do — especially in other people’s minds. When you’re traveling, you are what you are right there and then. People don’t have your past to hold against you. No yesterdays on the road.”
-William Least Heat Moon
When you travel you live in the present, there’s no past to hound you or a future to worry you-you live in the moment. And that is what we all want; to enjoy the life we have now without fear or worry.
Break your own boundaries
“Dare to live the life you’ve always wanted.”
For some, traveling is a normal part of life and for others, it’s something extraordinary. Whatever kind of traveler you are, dare to break away from the shackles bearing you down and live your life to the fullest without any fear.
Invigorate your mind and body
“Travel and change of place impart new vigor to the mind.”
New, sights and sounds, new faces, new places, and new food will awaken our senses and revitalize our bodies and travel is the best way to invigorate our minds from the dull and drab aspects of everyday life.
Open up your eyes
“We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm, and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.”
– Jawaharlal Nehru
We are closeted in by the hectic lives that we have no time to look up and enjoy the beauty and amazing things around us. With traveling, every sense of our’s is awakened and we have the opportunity to really see the world we live in with open eyes.
Live life to the fullest now
“And then there is the most dangerous risk of all — the risk of spending your life not doing what you want on the bet you can buy yourself the freedom to do it later.”
– Randy Komisar
We all know that life is short and we all know that time will creep up on us. We don’t even have the luxury of knowing that we will live until we are old. So ultimately, if your goal in life is to be happy, then why not pursue the things that do make you happy? Travel the world, meet new people and enjoy the life you have now.
Appreciation for the familiarity
No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow.”
– Lin Yutang
Some of us simply can’t stand to be in one place for too long — we are drawn to new experiences, cultures, and people, and we feel a constant to pull to see more and go further. But this wanderlust is also what makes us appreciate what we have back home and the comfort of familiarity.
See for yourself
“Don’t listen to what they say. Go see.”
Listening is one thing, but seeing is altogether a whole new different experience. Travel awakens your senses and makes us experience what living truly is.
Savor the fulfillment
“We wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment.”
– Hilaire Belloc
There’s nothing that can equal the fulfillment one experiences when traveling. We are meant to set our sights far away, traverse the earth and experience the joy of it and travel is the only way to do that.
