“If you don’t think you have enough money to go on vacation, go anyway.”
I once heard a preacher say this at a memorial service for a young man. People always say live like you are going to die tomorrow but we hear it all the time and roll our eyes. This stuck. This made me make the jump to travel as much as I can as soon as possible. I worked nearly every day for months and saved everything that was left after bills. You CAN do this. Flights and accommodations can be super cheap if you look around enough and do some research.
I’m writing this while sitting in the Ft. Lauderdale airport waiting for my flight to Newark. In a few days I’ll be on a flight to London and honestly I’m kind of nervous but that’s how I know it will be great. Almost everything we worry most about in life usually turn out for the best. Over the next few months I hope to get to know myself better and grow as a person. We should all be working to grow constantly and right now this seems to be the best way for me to discover myself.
I decided to start documenting my travels because I hope to help inspire and push others to step outside of their comfort zone. People tend to travel in groups but traveling solo opens you up to the world in a completely new way. You have the freedom to go absolutely anywhere you want without someone arguing against it. Being alone you are also more vulnerable but that too can show you just how strong and independent you really are. The world is your burrito. Eat it up.
