“For my part, I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.”
Quote by Robert Louis Stevenson
Not my quote, I wish it was but nonetheless it is a great motto to live by. Now I live to travel and deep down so does the average human being. That is why every year there are more and more hotels and resorts being built, airline routes added and travel bloggers like me to tease you with lustful travel locations.
Why? Because a we have a desire to move. To discover and be spontaneous. To take risks and live on the edge. But most of all to be free and somewhere new, exotic and different. The inner person has different desires to travel, some want to risk life and limb to climb mountains or jump of cliffs. While others prefer to live in luxury and drink a cocktail by the pool, watching sunsets. There is no right or wrong answer on how to travel, each traveller is different with separate ideas and goals, but they still share a similar desire and that is to travel.
Is travelling a waste of money? Could it be better spent on a better car, to upgrade your house or get the latest technologies? All great arguments but to me there is only one logical answer, hell no. In truth, I go insane if I haven’t got a holiday booked when I return from my last trip, I am constantly looking at airline prices for my next adventure and keeping any spare coins tucked away.
Much of us are the same, we work, pay bills and look forward to our next holiday, whether it is an expensive trip across Europe or a camping trip an hour way from the house. It doesn’t really matter, big budgets, little budgets, it doesn’t make any of us different as we are all keen to get to wander the globe in a way we can.
So until next time, Happy Travels.
