I need a vacation!

by - September 28, 2019

Sometimes you need a break from life, from family, friends… Just some time to sit and think about nothing and everything. Maybe you're frustrated that life isn't going the way you want it to or maybe you're a bit stressed and here you are wondering what  does this have to do with travelling.
Well...the truth is, you sometimes travel to avoid reality. 

You may walk 5 steps to the bathroom, 5 miles to the lake, 50 metres to your car. It doesn't really matter but as soon as you make that first step. You have travelled. 

Now you're probably wondering...hey, what's the point in all this? Long story short, you need that time in your comfort zone or out of it to make those tough life decisions or literally to just take a break from it all. Those moments alone inspire your journey, your next step, your next trip. 

I need a vacation! I need a break! If only I could be in Bora Bora right now, cocktail in hand and enjoying the beauty of it all. Relaxed, mentally, psychologically and physically. You literally just thought about sitting in a swimming pool or in the ocean with a nice cocktail of your choice in hand and basking in the sun. In that moment, you travelled. Not physically but mentally. 

And hey, if you weren’t thinking about it before, you definitely are now!

Travelling doesn't always mean that you have to get up and go. Sometimes you just need to sit with a novel in hand, (mysteries recommended) or a pen and paper and write a journal entry. Don’t forget to put the date so you can look back at it weeks, months or years later and go… pfft… that was nothing like what I’m dealing with today.

If you’re not much of a read or write type of person, you can hit the gym, go for a jog, take a walk in the park and if you’re lazy like well… most people. You must find your niche! Do what makes you happy! Your mental health is more valuable than any paid trip can ever be! 

This is just a note to you travellers!
