I beg you to travel; as often as possible, as long as possible. You will never regret spending money or investing time on a trip, I promise! You don’t need to spend 10 000$ pour a meaningful trip; traveling IS accessible – there are SO many different ways to travel, so many destinations, ressources, adventures, possibilities.
Every new year, I have a habit of thinking about my next destinations; I put that on my goals list for the year… I encourage you to do the same and to see one new place every year. For example, in January 2008, I was in Germany. In January 2009, I was in Cuba. In January 2014, I left for Australia and I landed in Sydney. In January 2015, I was still in Australia, but on the west side in Perth. In Janvier 2016, I was in Montreal, but I promised myself that I was going to backpack in South America so I went to Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Colombia. I also told myself that I wanted to do shorter trips to explore some places that, even though were pretty close, I had never seen before. So I went to New York, I did a road trip in the Maritimes and I visited Niagara Falls. And those are only the trips that I did in the months of January and in 2016.
All these travels were very different from one another; different goals, different travel buddies, different budget. The point here is not to make a list of every single destinations we visited to compare; the point is to realize that it is possible. If you want to get out of your city, of your routine, even for a short moment, DO IT. We all have responsabilities, a busy schedule, budget restrictions. But we can all take a risk; take a break, book a flight or buy a bus ticket.
