Did you see the picture? That is a shot from our 10-day road trip trough Europe. It was our home for this whole time. We were driving and sleeping in the car and nothing could stop us from hitting the breaks whenever we saw a beautiful view. We were our own bosses and managed the time as we wished. Road trips give you that kind of freedom that no other type of traveling gives you.
Having talked about how to chase your travel dreams and things to know when traveling, naturally I came to think about things to do BEFORE traveling. If you are about to make your travel dream a reality, often preparation is key. After all, travelling to lots of different countries is something that requires a lot of planning, not only in regards to the trip itself but also when it comes to your finances. With that being said, read on to discover more about some of the important things you need to do before you travel the world.
Ask people what they’d like to have more of in their life, and you’ll invariably get the answer “travel.” And before you start giving me all the excuses, just let me give you some truths:
If your dream is to travel the world and experience everything that it has to offer (like it is mine), you need to somehow find the money to make that happen. It’s something that many people struggle with, but there are ways to find the money for your travel adventure, even if you don’t have lots of money at your disposal right now. I am going to look at some of the best ways to fund your travel plans, so read on to find out more.
Traveling is as much about experiencing new modalities of life and learning new skills on the way. You are improving your personality every time you step outside of your comfort zone and experience new and exciting things.
When I moved to Norway I was forced to learn Norwegian because my colleagues did not speak any English. When I traveled to Bulgaria, I had to learn how to live on cucumbers and cabbage on daily basis, when I went to Romania, I learned how to hitchhike. Traveling makes you learn new things wherever you go.
When you travel a lot, people often ask how you do it. They say that they don’t have the time or the money and that they wish they could travel like you could. It’s true that some people really don’t have the time or money to travel, but many people could come up with both if they wanted to. If you have travel dreams, they don’t have to be dreams forever. They can become reality if you’re willing to work towards it. And it could be a lot easier and less expensive than you imagine it might be.
