Some people shop to unwind and pamper themselves, others travel. I belong to the latter. I have always loved exploring and discovering new places. It’s what I do for fun.
Discovering a place and experiencing life like a local is what makes traveling fun. Imagine eating food that you haven’t tried before. Some of the local delicacies may not exactly be appealing but that’s what makes it fun. You won’t appreciate a place if you don’t try their local cuisine. Even if you’re not a fan of exotic food, you have got to try once in a while.
One of the things that I always try when I go to a new place is their coffee. I cannot live without a decent caffeine fix. I love traveling to other cities and countries to find quaint, little cafes and coffee shops.
For someone who loves chasing cultures, talking to the locals to know more about the country’s history is really interesting. It’s one of the best parts of wandering around. Getting lost in a city you’ve never been is fun if you have the courage to go out there and live like it’s the last day of your life.
You don’t always have to stay in your comfort zone. Travel to experience freedom, travel to meet people, travel to discover that there’s more to life than what you know. Don’t let your fear hold you back. It’s nice to go backpacking, you have got to try that at least once in your life. It’s an experience worth treasuring, and something that you won’t ever forget.
Do not travel for the sake of social media. Travel because you want to discover new places and meet new people. Don’t travel for photos. Travel for the experience, and for the memories. Do not travel because it’s the trend. Travel because you want to get out of your comfort zone.
