Oh, what a feeling it is to travel to every place possible on the planet. Or at least dream about it in a pandemic world.
It’s very easy to fall into the “I want to travel everywhere” trance because the world is such a beautiful place and you deserve to see it. And, as you imagine prancing over the different types of soil and breathing in the scent of the outdoor air, remember that there’s a simple solution to your desire to traveling everywhere. Especially if you can’t make up your mind about where to start.
A passport and a deep determination will drive anyone to the edge of every border, but here’s how to find a simple solution to “I want to travel everywhere” without feeling overwhelmed about choosing where to go first (second, third…you get the picture).
Is This You?
Can you remember the first flight you ever took; the feeling of sitting in your seat and then bracing yourself as the plane lifted off? Of course, you can.
I’m sure you also remember returning from your destination, and the first thing on your mind even before you stepped foot on your return flight home is that place you wanted to explore next.
When the flight touches down and you arrive home, you powered up your laptop or pulled out your phone and started to search for the next place in mind. Isn’t It always a choice between somewhere hot, beautiful, and tropical and a place with acceptable weather that holds the history and historic landmarks? Or a choice between a far-off land on a continent you’ve yet to visit and an Instagram-worthy adventure?
Or, if you’re an aspiring or new traveler, are you dreaming about finally visiting a destination on your bucket list?
While you’re over the moon, sun, and the additional 9 planets (Yes, I’m including Pluto lol) and exhilarated that you’re finally taking a leap to see the world, you also know the overwhelm of actually choosing where to go. You will find a simple solution to your eagerness to travel everywhere. So, take all that energy and use it for something productive like narrowing down your traveling bucket list before you just start a general search without any direction.
Here’s how to do that!
Travel = You
The simple solution is to consider your personality and your likes and dislikes. There is always a place you have wanted to see and that should always be your first choice when deciding where to go. Your personality plays a huge part in the decision-making process of choosing the right destination. Your choice should always suit you.
Note: You also want to see which destinations are “open” before setting your heart on a particular place. Read Here for More.
Only you will know what temperatures, food, and people you want for your self-discovery. Sit down and figure out the places are that best suit you and do all the research possible on the destination before booking your ticket. You may want to talk to some people that have traveled there before and take into account their experiences.
The more information you gain on the specific destination you will know if it is right for you. Write down your likes and dislikes, bounce some ideas off of your peers and think about the history that you want to explore. Redirect all of that energy of uncertainty and put it towards actually making a list of every destination that you have ever wanted to see.
Think about the cultures that you want to experience and the beautiful locals waiting to sell you their creations. Imagine the sights and the views that you want to share on social media with your friends and family.
But most of all think about the experiences that you will live to tell and can dream about.
Get over the anxiousness of your next trip and just relax in the present moment. There should be no rush because as we learned this past year there’s no better time than the present. Soak it all up and live in the moment. You hold the tickets and the key to unlocking the doors of your vacation.
You will eventually get to visit your most desired country, state, and land foreign to you when you adopt a you first approach.
Remember you are the solution to where your destiny will lead you.
