Wow! I wish I could travel like that.
The thing is, most of us actually can. Before I started traveling,
“wow! I wish I could travel like that.”
But I was afraid.
The world is a very dangerous place, at least according
to the media, our education, our family church, and so on.
I was afraid of leaving my comfort zone,
and going, by myself, into the unknown world.
I was also afraid of not having any money, and then the people that I hosted
in my apartment told me two amazing things.
First of all, you don’t have to be brave to travel, you just have to have
a little bit of courage to start, to leave.
And the other thing they told me is that you don’t have to be rich to travel.
Actually, all expenses while you’re traveling fall into three major categories:
first is transportation, to get from point A to point B,
the other one is accommodation, and the last is everything else,
food, drinks and so on.
So, is it for everyone, this type of travelling?
I don’t think so; with all the amazing things that this kind of travelling can bring to you, there are also downsides:
it’s a big chance that you’ll be lonely and that you’ll be hungry, sick, homesick,
but it all comes down to your gut feeling.
Because like that famous quote says, “In twenty years from now on, you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do, than by the things you did do”.
