Travel changes us.
In a good way.
Here are 4 things I have learned about traveling well through my travels.
1/ Travel light
Only a person who travels without check-in luggage on a flight knows the joy it brings. It is also economical and useful for those traveling on a budget.
2/ Travel with a plan and without too
Both have their values. One makes you a better planner and helps you save resources and explore better. Other brings spontaneity into your life and teaches you to be less rigid.
3/ Travel with friends, and family. Also, travel alone.
One makes trips more enjoyable. The other makes you more self-reliant and also allows you to be more open and flexible about what you can and can’t do when traveling.
4/ Ease into it
First, do a day trip to local places. Then graduate to weekend trips. Then do week-long trips to cities and places in your own country. Then plan an overseas trip, and make it longer than a week to allow yourself to immerse into the foreign culture.
Hope this helped.
