You could already read some tips for preparing to travel somewhere. I also wrote some suggestions to make your trip more safe, and about packing.
Maybe You felt it wasn’t enough, and I totally agree with You! Even that you have maybe the flight ticket, it’s hard to go! Years ago it was tough for me too, but I made a decision I would never regret. You’re not alone with it, look what I just collected here!
I know, there are times when you have no money at all to travel, or even for a long weekend somewhere. I was in this situations not even just once. The question is, what we can do in this situation? Walking with closed eyes on the street avoiding to see any of those tempting advertisement about spending the long weekend in Paris. Deleting all the friends on Facebook, who’s laying at the beach at the moment?
The answer: NO, not at all, do the opposite!
Whatever you want to reach, you need to pay attention to it. Start to train your conscious, that You gonna travel! Because first You need to believe in it!
I remember, a couple of years ago I said to someone that I will teach yoga one day in Thailand at the beach in a nice open bungalow. What was the reaction? Laugh…and of course, I got uncertain about what I just said. But it wasn’t a joke. Today, I can certainly say, with a small amount of organizing I know I could do it. And that feeling is the best one on the world. I know when we want to reach something, we start to work for it, believe in it, it needs to be a success. But I didn’t believe in this for so long!
What can You do to reach your dream to travel?
I guess it’s hugely my fault, that i needed 27 years to finally test myself for food allergies. I felt before that something is not kosher, but i had the feeling is the wheat causing problems. Now I can tell, i have a primary lactose allergy and based on this a gluten sensitivity.
What it means?
I can not eat any kind of diary or food contains diary, and the doctor said i needed to follow a strict gluten free diet for a whole year. No wheat and his friends. I can already see i need to pay a lot of attention. It’s not enough anymore to search for fresh ingredients, but i need to know if anything is contaminated with something i’m not allowed to eat.
When you already know where you’re going and when, then you have some stuff to do.
What are you interested in?
You’ve heard that the Eiffel tower is a must, but you would like to see the Notre Dame as well. So the question is, what are the local attractions, and what are YOU interested in? I usually don’t see all the things that a travel book suggests. One of the reason that i don’t care that much, and I also don’t want to be a tourist who’s running all over and check out things from his long list. Therefore i have some things in my mind that i already know i don’t want to miss, but most of them i pick up from other travelers or locals. They know more cool things than a stupid travel book.
I don’t make an every day schedule, just if i have a short time at the destination, then a lazy ‘what to do each day’ it comes pretty handy.
Traveling alone is dangerous, boring, scary…etc. We heard all this opinions. But the reality is not even close, and please, let me prove you!
