Wanderlust, traveller, explorer and the pisha kaka. All these words have becomed so popular (cliched), thanks to the interent boom and to the people who pinterested and Instagramed the effed out of such words/quotes. Do you too want to travel just because it is cool and in, nowadays? Or you have the right motive behind it?
This is about travelling for yourself and the sake of travelling versus travelling to rub it in everyone else’s faces that you are halfway across the world and having the time of your life.
As cliché as it may sound, travelling is a great way to discover yourself and to develop as an individual. Going to a place where you know absolutely no one and are a complete unknown gives you the opportunity to try new things, make mistakes, meet people and truly live in the moment.
Being thrown into a completely different culture teaches you valuable lessons about being independent, compassionate and open-minded. Yet technology seems to be both thwarting and altering this very experience.
We hear a lot about seizing the moment and making the most out of everyday — after all, we are the YOLO generation — but a lot of that is lost when we are too concerned with making sure we record every beach day, adventurous hike and beer pong tournament.
Don’t create moments for photos. Live in the moment and capture a glimpse of it, so that you can treassure it forever as an evidence.
Travelling should be about exploration, discovery and experiencing different things. It shouldn’t be about living everything through the camera on your smartphone just so you can show your friends back home.
I’m a firm believer that travelling is one of the best things a person can do for themselves — especially while you’re young and without any job or relationship commitments.
While taking advantage of this, make sure to keep your level of showing off to a minimum — or at least to a respectable level. After all, you didn’t pay a thousand dollars to fly halfway across the world for my enjoyment — you did it for yourself.
Get lost trying to find your hostel, spend a day rafting and getting sunburnt and swap travel stories with new friends over cheap drinks. Revel in the moment because once it’s gone, it becomes a memory — a memory that I can’t wait to hear you share in person once you get home.
Now, if you are travelling this summer then you need a good travel bag in which you can stuff all your travel essentials, without worrying that something will get damaged.
Invest in a good travel bag.
