When was the last time you did something for the first time?
It’s Monday again and this week’s inspiration is about traveling and I can’t even begin to describe you how much I love it. “Travel the world” everyone says but each and every one of us has something different in mind. As a training specialist in Tourism sector I had the opportunity to do a lot of research about the traveling styles people prefer but at the end of the day tourists, travelers, adventurers and wanderers, wanted the same thing: -Escape from everyday life.
When was the last time you did something for the first time? -Is the kind of question my great-grandma would ask (yes, girls in our family has always been bohemien free spirits :p ). There are a few things that I remember about her but her love for traveling was unforgettable. Ironically she never went anywhere further than 60km/40miles away from home but she always dreamed of it. She would hold me on her laps, look directly in my eyes and tell me “I wish for you to see all the kingdoms of the world” and then she usually added “don’t be uneducated like me”. In her mind traveling was education, to see the world, learn new things, meet new people, have different experiences and adventures. The more I think of it the more I realize that this woman who was born in the late 1890’s and never been away from home, was absolutely right.
I haven’t been everywhere but it’s on my list. Traveling from a young age with my family was a good start but my favorite trips till now are the ones I took with my husband during the past years. Lucky us we are both the “experience type” travelers. We love to go behind the touristic paths, blend in and meet the real culture of the places we visit. In the future I’m thinking of creating a section in this blog to share my experiences in traveling, tips and infos that can make your trip a little bit more bohemien.
For the moment I just want to inspire you and encourage you to start planning your next trip in a place you’ve never been before. What better thing to do on a Monday morning while drinking your coffee?
The world is out there and awaits you to create new memories.
