Sharing Travel Experiences OMG! The best travel ever!

Traveling is something that is filled with anticipation. From the very moment you decide to take a trip in the first place (the beginning of the climax), the countless and numerous searching as a Travel Agents, friend recommendations and leafing through books while considering where your destination will be. Then the thrill of actually booking the trip and being able to say that “Yes! Now it’s actually happening. And on such-and-such date!” Followed by the exciting research and making plans regarding what constitutes as your must-sees, must-eats and must-dos while there. Then the process of counting down the months, weeks and finally days to your actual date of departure, and even the adrenaline-inducing taking off of the plane from the runway and lifting into the air, or the train pulling away from the station and moving you towards your destination. ALL of this is: anticipation. Which = GREAT fun!

Your wings already exist. All you have to do is Fly.

I love the excitement of it all–feeling like an explorer–discovering a new land, a new language, new money and all the little challenges that go along with it. When I travel, I am more spontaneous and don’t live for the future or the past… just in the moment. Being impulsive and saying ‘yes’ to nearly everything is part of the fun.

I love the rush. Habitual runners get off on the kick-in of endorphins that give them that extra boost they need to keep going. I get the same jolt from a day of travel or an unexpected side trip to a new and undiscovered land (for me… not for all mankind) that I hadn’t planned to visit. Traveling seems to give me a near constant adrenaline rush. After a few years of uninterrupted travel, I became quite addicted to this feeling. Traveling can be a challenge, but to me, a fun challenge that I enjoy conquering time and time again.

I love meeting new people all the time. In no other time in my life have I met so many people and made so many new friends in such a short time. The world is full of friendly, generous people. Sure, every place has its share of nitwits too, but as a traveler, you seem much less likely to meet them. Maybe because people want to help you or maybe because you just don’t know some people long enough to uncover their schmuck-like tendencies. Since the nature of travel is to keep moving, these folks never become boring… because you simply don’t know them long enough to discover their flaws or get sick of them.

I love the freedom. I experience a great feeling of independence from traveling solo. I can go wherever I want, whenever I want. I can sleep in. I can stay out late. It’s all up to me.

Clients I have met

All this also shows me how easy it would be just to live somewhere else… anywhere else really. Staying in each place for an extended bit of time taught me how I could make friends, find work, and find a flat all rather easily. Things that I would have to do if I was living there anyway-so, in many ways, for all intents and purposes it’s as if I was living there already.

Sight-Seeing Tours

Sightseeing Tours: Sightseeing excursions are typically bus tours that take passengers to the highlights and shopping areas of the port city or nearby destinations. Remember that excursions look different in different parts of the world. In the Caribbean, you'll find options like snorkeling with sting rays or transportation to private beaches; European tours focus more on sightseeing -- for example, full-day tours from the port of Livorno to the museums and cathedrals of Florence or multi-hour lunches, featuring local produce, meats and wine at a farmhouse in Tuscany.

Full vs. Half-Day Tours: Sightseeing Tours vary in length. Some take up all your time, while others are just a few hours of an all-day visit. Choose a full-day tour to see the most you can in one trip or for journeys to destinations outside the port city. A half-day tour might only focus on one specific itinerary -- a three-hour kayak trip or a highlights tour of a city -- but leaves you with free time to explore the port on your own before or after.

My favorite type of tours are Adventurous. I love to Zip-line, horse-back riding and half day yacht party rides.

Benefits of Traveling

If there was one piece of advice I have for people today to experience more joy in life, it is to travel more. I don’t mean taking vacations or going on pre-planning trips, I mean making the journey out to somewhere you’ve never gone before with an open schedule, to let life show you what opportunities were waiting for you that you couldn’t have even imaged before.

Traveling is wonderful in many ways. It captures us with a sense of wanderlust and has us longing for more destinations to visit, cultures to experience, food to eat, and people to meet. As amazing as traveling is, most of us think we need to wait until our later years to really explore a lot of the world. I want to inspire you to travel more now. There’s concept, and then there’s experience. When we travel, we may notice that some of the things we’ve heard about the world end up being very different than what we were indoctrinated and conditioned to believe. Many of the initial myths that get dispelled are often about traveling itself. Where you once may have thought it was too expensive and dangerous, you may realize how you can actually save more on your lifestyle expenses traveling the world than you do living at home. You may also realize how kind and friendly strangers can be. Beyond that, you have the whole world to learn about with every place you discover, every person you meet and every culture you experience.

You'll realize life is a wonderful gift

Life is a wonderful gift. It really is, and as we travel and experience more of the world and life, we often become overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for all the beautiful moments we enjoyed and people we’ve shared them with. More often than not, this is a realization that we can experience and take action from now while we’re still alive with energy rather than stacking up regrets by the time we’re on our death bed. Rather than waiting until you’re saying “I wish I had”, live so you can say “I’m glad I did”.

Travel gives me time to think, ideate, observe and learn new things - culture, food, history. It also gives a lot of time to introspect and understand on how certain things are done around the world. You sort of get a benchmark on life. ... To know yourself, travel alone".

Here are 10 top reasons why travel is important:

1. Provides learning and education about places and history

2. Connects us to other cultures and people

3. Slows us down: Gives us a break from our fast-paced lives

4. Expands our awareness and introduces us to greater diversity

5. Helps us break habits: mentally, physically, and emotionally

6. Gives us time to heal, reduces stress and helps us regain enthusiasm for life

7.Stokes curiosity and awakens our inner child by offering us new, “first-time” experiences

8. Promotes patience by releasing heavy expectations of the “one right way” mentality thereby allowing life to flow more organically

9. Invites the opportunity to get lost and face one’s fears of the unknown

10. Helps you get to know yourself better: the true you is rediscovered

Today, let’s plan a trip for 2019: Go somewhere new. Try something adventurous! Love yourself, love your day, love your life,
