What I Miss Most About Travel!
"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” –Saint Augustine Sometimes we need a different environment to appreciate our own, I have been travelling internationally for over 20 years and there is nothing I love to d more, however unfortunately since the pandemic I have taken a break. Below is what I miss most about travelling. 1. Shopping for travel items There is no better feeling than shopping for your travel items from clothes, to gadgets, it is such an exciting feeling. I always write a list of essentials and end up purchasing many essential items and going over my initial budget, however it is so much shopping from travel items even toothpaste can be lol. I enjoy placing my toiletries in a clear sealed bag the one that has to pass through customs. 2. Exposure to different cultures I love experiencing and learning about different cultures from their religions to foods, to customs, it
is such an eye-opener. 3. Taking a break from daily life Everyone needs to switch off from work-life etc and change the environment it refreshes the mind-
body, and soul. There is more to life than going to work, paying bills, and studying. Life has to also be about making memories and taking time out for fun, it can't be all work and no play. 4. Meeting new people I have made and I am still friends with several people from my travels, all from various backgrounds
the friendships have lasted because of how we met and bonded on our travels. 5. Being in a place for the first time There is no greater excitement than going to a new place for the first time not knowing what to
or except. Being a tourist is so much and I feel like a child go though a trsure hunt searching for
locations,attempting to speak the local langauge and try new foods 6. Appreciating what I have back home Sometimes we need a different environment to appreciate our own,or to see people living less
fortunate to make me more gratetful for what I have. 7. Travel pics Since we are in the social media age photos have a life of their own nowadays, uploading travel pics
is such a buzz going through each one and connecting with others and discussing the different
locations. What I do not miss about Travelling Can you think of more reasons why you miss travelling ?
