Wanderlust: The Compulsion to Travel
You may have traveled the world and visited many places. Many seasoned travelers have explored popular countries and cities and have challenged themselves with daring adventures that ordinary people would be afraid to try. But why do people go on such escapades, what compels them?
So, is a beach in Spain better than a beach in Hawaii, or are they just the same? They’re both beaches with sea, sand, and sun, and people. You might discover that their cuisine is different from each other, but are the differences between the places you go worth all the money, time, and effort that you spend? What does it matter, if the sand you are walking on is white or brown, or the water you are wading on is shallow or rocky? What you are looking for is break from the stressful demands of work. This is the reason why you choose to travel.
The pleasure of experiencing new things is what makes traveling such a bargain. Don’t waste your time always going on beaches and resorts or entertainment venues. Traveling is more fun than all that.
Travel for the wanderlust that compels you to go out in the first place and try new things. Few people feel this compulsion that you do and have the chance to fulfill your dreams. Reignite your passion for travel and fall in love with the outdoors again.
Peer into the adventures of other people, and see what other countries or cities they go that you have never been to. A great way to get something out of the internet is by looking at the websites of other travelers who have gone on an awesome adventure you have never thought of. There are countless tourist spots you can view just by googling or by searching on youtube.
Inspiration is the key to your enjoyment. Have you been to the lovely islands of the Philippines and met its friendly people or visited the thick jungles in Africa? The world is within your reach inside your computer.
Keep a bucket list of all the places you want to visit or the adventures you want to try when you travel. But, it should include more, like taking that long road trip from the east to the west coast, visiting tribal villages, or just traveling in style on first-class. Think of extra-ordinary activities worth taking pictures of or saving on video. Rack up these unique adventures to look forward to, and get inspired by them.
Bring friends along with you on your next travel. Tell your friends stories of the places you’ve gone to and take them there. If you have friends with you, going on that thrilling escapade might not be as scary as when you are alone. Let your friends choose the adventure, that would be more exciting.
These tips should inspire you more to travel.
