Travel: Have Courage and Forget the rest
Just about everyone craves the excitement and wonder that comes from being able to travel as much as possible. Getting out of your little bubble and being able to see the world is something that can change people’s entire perspectives on life. And yet, for so many people, they never actually do it. This can be down to so many things, but for a lot of people, it can fall down to anxiety. With the world as it is, it can be a struggle to imagine getting yourself out there. For some, it’s the anxiety of flying, for others, it’s the thought of being in a crowded space. For many, it’s about their perception of travelling, so here’s a post all about the reality of travelling, and how you can travel despite your thoughts otherwise.
THE MONEY ISSUE
We’ve all heard it and, to be fair, it’s a pretty reasonable thing to say. Money just gets in the way of our travels. We’ve all spent time with those people who go travelling constantly without a care about money. That’s honestly great for them, slightly annoying for us…but great for them. The thing to remember is that there are plenty of ways to travel on an incredibly tight budget. Everything from choosing the simplest possible accommodation to travelling to less popular destinations can help you save a lot of money. Do your research and don’t be afraid to try new places, you might just love it!
NO ONE TO GO WITH
Sure, travelling in a group can be loads of fun, but it’s far from a prerequisite to being able to travel at all. In fact, travelling on your own can be one of the most incredible things in the world…Or so I’ve heard. I’ve travelled alone in the UK, and I’ve spent days to myself, and ideally, I would love to travel somewhere abroad alone. Hopefully, someday I will!
I’LL TRAVEL WHEN…
Excuses. And I hate to say it, but I’m guilty of it too. I used to put off travelling through fear of my weight. I kept imagining people looking at my body and making fun. It’s only when you get to the beach that you realise that no one actually cares. Everyone is focusing on themselves, and frankly, if they’re looking at your body on the beach then they’re just creepy AF.
If you’re suffering from any kind of ill health, then the idea of travelling can often be kind of daunting too. And that’s totally reasonable. What’s not reasonable is letting it stand in the way of you travelling at all. All you need to do is to make sure that you have the right provisions and things put in place to account for your health while you’re travelling. Taking out travel insurance with medical conditions can often be a little bit more expensive, but it’s always a good idea so that you’re not left in the lurch if something happens. You should also do as much research as possible so that you always know where you can get the best possible medical treatment no matter where you are.
