This year, I may or may not travel.
But who knows, because based on last year’s adventures I learnt that I was capable of making an impromptu decision. Just like when I decided to purchase return tickets for my then 7-year-old nieces, five days prior to flying to Jakarta … just because I wanted companions and most of all, I wanted to expose them to a backpacking adventure. That was in May 2015 and boy, we had a blast.
“To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries.” – Aldous Huxley It is never too late to travel solo. I started doing it just recently. After many years of contemplating and procrastinating, I flew to Denmark last December. I was nervous but excited at the same time. At the end of my three-week trip, I learnt that travelling alone is not a bad decision after all. It is okay to travel alone and be afraid of it. Along the way, you will make new friends and overcome fear one step at a time because you have no choice. If you are afraid of embarking on your own adventure, I hope this will help. You may also want to read travel quotes to inspire you to see the world. Personally, I love reading quotes. Especially on travel and adventure. Here are my six favourite quotes I found online 🙂
“At the beach, life is different. Time doesn’t move hour to hour, but mood to moment. We live by currents, plan by the tides, and follow the sun.” -Sandy Gingras, How to Live at the Beach
There comes a time in life when you just feel lazy to care about how you look or dress. You totally lose it. Been there, done that. It was not a good place to be and it was not a good feeling because it affected my life. I believe everyone should feel good in the morning to kick-start the day with positive attitude and mind. If you are not feeling it, then you should probably change your morning routine.
How does it feel to travel alone to a country where you don’t speak the language and know no one? And the only language you bring is your own? When I traveled in Denmark, stopping a random person on the street for help was easy. I didn’t face a language barrier because most Danish people and travelers or tourists I bumped into spoke English until I met Cecelia.
