Everyone in this world has got a little traveler within themselves—one who is ready to unleash at the sound of adventure.
However, the ever so worrisome character of the everyday runway prevents that from happening, and in most instances, the little traveler departs, leaving only traces of its unfulfilled desires.
The primary reason for this is, of course, the ‘mai-baap’ of all frets – MONEY! (Yeah, go on, nod frantically)
But worry not because here you will find the solution to all those inhibitions, right from the handbooks of travel experts and enthusiasts. (Say WHAAAT!!)
That’s right, the people who have ‘been there, done that.’
So let’s go ahead, burst those misconceptions and gather that courage!
1. Plan Far Ahead
Before you quit the job you are doing, make a full-fledged travel plan of all the places you would like to visit. Learn the language and get some basic ideas about the way of life in those places. It would be best if you were mentally prepared to offer your help to people in return for meager accommodation. And most importantly, create a secure and stable outlook before setting your foot out.
2. It doesn’t Matter If You Are Not From a Developed Country
It is always hard for people living in developing and under-developed countries to choose to travel as a vocation, over the more conventional ones, due to the fear of unknown legal functioning in different countries.
However, traveler Aileen Adalid says that all will be well until you travel to the countries you may enter visa-free and record all your stays. That’s enough proof that you won’t be a threat to the countries pre-requiring a visa.
3. Brush Up Those Skills
Please make a list of what all you are good at and work on them. A lot of people travel all over the world simply by teaching Yoga or English in different countries. Your dexterity in a field, no matter what it is, can take you a long way, helping you survive while pursuing various destinations.
4. Bond With Fellow Travellers
As Ying, a Malaysian traveler oh-so-wisely, says, when on the road, waste no time in familiarizing yourself with others like you. These people can prove to be indispensable for getting accommodations and invaluable lessons from their own struggles in keeping their passion alive.
5. Make Use of Technology
In the digital era, we must leave no virtual stones unturned. Adalid points out how doing a thorough research and reaching out to people over the internet can make your journey assuage. By establishing contacts, you can partner with online businesses and work for them from wherever you are. If not that, you can start your own travel blog and be paid to write about your unique adventures!
So get up, look for cheap flights and pack your bags!
Be the master of your world and indulge in everything that is Crazy, Dangerous, and Unknown.
Travel, lose yourself, and find ‘YOURSELF.’
Let nothing stop you from feeding that ready traveler in you.
