#travelling around the world
I ve been fortunate enough to travel to more than 15+ countries, 5 different continents, had the chance of staying in 5 star hotels, hostels with no running water and sharing a room with triplebunkbeds and more than 20 people at a time, slept at airports, gotten drunk with strangers. Not to mention the travels within my own country, camping in a desert, driving more than 2000kms with friends just to reach a destination, surftrips, MTB trips, going to ancient towns, etc.
I believe that many of the opinions for and against traveling are correct, here are some of my own personal opinions.
- Gaining perspective. You get a broader image of what the world is, its an opportunity to burst your bubble and Get out of your comfort zone.
- Coming back home. After an intensive trip of constantly moving around, there s no better feeling than arriving back to your own space, your own bed, your family, your food.
- Better appreciation for what you have. Being grateful for those things you take for granted on a daily basis.
- Problem solving, Creativity. Unlike in your own country, in other places you have to hustle to solve problems, many times they don t speak any language you know, you have limited knowledge on how things work, and you have a limited amount of resources to fix problems.
- Not Traveling by the book. When in Paris, you have to go to X or Y . There s nothing I hate more, than having to visit a place and taking a selfie, just because a trillion people have already done it, you have to travel by your own demands and your own intuition.
In general, I love traveling, I have managed to gather plenty great experiences and stories that linger along with me thanks to those travels, but more than traveling, I love home. Some things cannot be lived in your own country, smells, sounds, tastes etc, which is why the only way to experience these things is to book a flight, grab a bus, or a train, and travel to some unknown destination for you and feel these things for yourself
