‘The world is a book and those who don’t travel read only a page’- Saint Augustine.
So you have finally taken that brave step, turning years of dreams into reality! Yesss, a trip alone into the unknown, into a new world, hopefully in search of experiences that you will cherish for a lifetime! Whether it is the daily struggle or frustration of our dull boring lives or simply the longing for the adrenaline rush, the excitement, it does not matter what drives you alone into the wild!
A lone trip can potentially turn into the break that you have been looking for, away from all the hustle and bustle, this might just be the what your mind and body have been looking for! While you’re at it, it might be a good time to indulge in the following!
1. Get a new Perspective to life
When was the last time you sat back and thought about your past, present and the future with a genuine interest ? We are guessing that was a long time ago!
The daily grinds of a job and earning money turn us into machines and lead to a huge void in ourselves. Our lives become monotonous and we accept fate as it is, no matter whether you are really enjoying what you are doing or not. Travelling alone, far and away can give you that opportunity to think about life once again, figure out how you want your life to really be, in simple words get a new perspective to life.
Give yourself own well deserved space; it would be futile not to use it for some introspection. Think of ways to channelize your energy, to make people around you happy. You shall be a matured and seasoned person as your trip draws to a close.
- Befriend people
So you’re wondering where is that cheerful person who loved to make new friends, go out, socialise and discuss different things. Chances are that you have been stuck at the same place for a long long time with the same people, same things to talk about, clearly an indicator that you need to meet new people!
On your trip you shall come across a diverse range of people with varying skills, experiences and things to talk about. Go ahead talk to them, this is the opportunity you’ve been looking for. Believe us, meeting new people makes you realise that your horizon of life has been so narrow, there are so many things in this world that you do not know about, this experience is a must to flood your mind with new ideas!
Be at your creative best. Give way to the idea that has been forming in your mind for a long time now. Nurture the motive and experience the amazing feeling of satisfaction.
- Be an enthusiast
‘When the traveller is active, he goes strenuously in search of people, adventure and experience.’ Most pleasant things in life are free. Be it the rising sun, the blooming flower or the chirping birds. Be sure you capture it all.
