Growing up as a kid, I was never the one who dreamt of having a family or have a wedding like most of my friends – instead I fantasized about adventures and trips to countries far away. The thought got me so excited. Fast forward, the same feeling remains the same. Over the years, I’ve learned the meaning of ‘following your bliss’ and I can’t think of anything more rewarding than to travel.
”Traveling is the only thing money can buy that makes you richer”
I’ve always admired people who travel alone, the thought of it has made me nervous at times at the same time that I like the concept of doing everything on your own pace. Being a firm believer in that only you can make you happy, the trip to London thought me many things. One thing that I came to understand was to when you travel alone, you invest in yourself but it also illustrates what sort of foundation you have as a person and how much you like your own company. I am writing this from the airport in Berlin, waiting to board my plane to New York.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by
the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” – Mark Twain
Although I used to live in the U.S. for two years, I’ve only visited NY once – it was for only a few days in February and it was freezing. Words can’t really explain how excited I am to go back, and to go back alone. So I guess I am one of those people after all, who travels alone. And if you are a true wanderlust at heart, you will find a way to do your adventures without having to depend on others to want the same experience as you. Once you taken the step, you will look back wonder why you haven’t done it sooner.
“Stuff your eyes with wonder, live as if you’d drop dead in ten seconds. See the world.
It’s more fantastic than any dream made or paid for in factories.” – Ray Bradbury
