Five Reasons NOT To Travel

In light of my recent post about five reasons to go travelling NOW, I only thought it fitting to give you five reasons not to go travelling

Because everyone else is doing it

I mean the whole point of a trend is that everyone is getting on it right. But like what I mean to say is that don’t go to Bali because everyone else is going to Bali. If you hate humidity and coconuts you’re gonna hate Bali. Ask yourself where your own interest lie.

To brag on Instagram

Or any other social media. I mean part of what makes our generation amazing is that we’re able to share our lives with thousands of people but your primary reasons to travel should not be to give yourself a nice insta feed.

To empty your bank account

When I say go travel  I don’t mean drop everything and leave. Try being a good, budget traveller, you wanna come out rich in experiences, not material things. Although a little splurge never hurt anyone

To get away from something/someone

Don’t use travelling as an excuse to run away from your problems because that will only make the journey that much less enjoyable

I could try and think of a fifth reason but i just love travelling too much so i hope the four suffice!

Five Reasons To Go Travelling Now

Travelling has become one of the biggest trends of our time and I cannot resist joining the wagon. If you’re not already convinced, let me give you five reasons to go explore the world!

That Feeling

My number one reason to go travelling is to have that feeling. You know that feeling where you realise how beautiful our world is and you don’t want to take out your phone just yet because it might just ruin the moment you’re having?

Go travel for that feeling.

To gain more knowledge

While reading books gives you plenty of knowledge, travelling is a more proactive way of gaining that knowledge. You see new places, history, language, human existence, it all comes down to one experience.

The Food

I don’t know about you but put something new on my plate and it might just become my next fav food. When you go travelling you’re bound to come across a culture or city’s local foods that you won’t find in your home town. That is an adventure in itself

You’ll have a story to tell

No matter where the adventure takes you, you’ll have a story to tell and that will shape the person you are. You’ll grow and learn as you navigate a city’s subway system or learn how to use chopsticks.

It will make you more empathetic

In a world where people just can’t help but turn against each other, travelling the world and learning a thing or two without relying on the media might just help make you a better person.

Photo Diary | Hiking Mishaps 

This post will teach you a lesson about why it’s a bad idea to rely on public transport when you plan on going hiking.

The best friend and I decided to be all active and adventurous and took a hike up one of the famous mountains in our town. A four kilometre hike soon turned into a twelve kilometre hike due to lack of public transport services or just our general bad luck . I wouldn’t call it bad luck so much because we decided to see it as an adventure and an opportunity to spend more time with each other. We also tried THE BEST pizza so it was all worth it in the end.
