If you are still wondering what your New Year Resolution should be, I will help you out with this post - go travelling! It is the best way to discover and learn, It's interactive, it allows you to experience the beauty of this world first hand and it accessible now more than it has ever been!
You don't believe me? I've been travelling the world for more than 9 years, this year in September It will be exactly decade! I am not rich and neither are my parents, I am not earning money with this blog (maybe one day....sigh). I guess I am just resourceful. There is so many ways you can travel the world for free just waiting for you to pick one. Exchange student programs, summer jobs abroad, au pair, couchsurfing you name it, I've done it all.
The only thing that keeps you from doing what you want to do is the fear of the unknown and fear of change. Don't get too comfortable, push your limits and sooner than you think you will be rewarded with awesome memories and many new friendships around the world. There is never perfect time for anything, but if there is, it is NOW!
"Once a year go someplace you've never been before" - Dalai Lama
"Climb mountains not so the world can see you, but so you can see the world"!
"There is no passion to be found in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living"
"There are a lot of stories out there waiting for you to live them"
"Life is like a camera, focus on what's important and capture the good times"
"One who lives sees much, one who travels sees more"
"I would rather own a little and see the world than own the world and see a little of it"
"You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough"
"If you change nothing, nothing will change"
I've compiled these photos from last 3 years of travelling to inspire you to do the same. Not all of them are taken by me. Few of them were taken by my friends, whom I met during my trips.
...Are you packing your bags already? :) I hope you are!
