We all have the urge of going somewhere in the world where we have never been before at least once in our lives, right?
The idea of planning a backpacking trip might have been coming to your mind in the past. It also happened to me.
Stories from friends and relatives who returned from amazing backpacking journeys inspired me and made me think about travel all the time.
As a result, I made the decision to start traveling the world, part by part.
Travel can be seen as a form of escapism. But think about it.
Is escapism, by all means, always a bad thing?
Some people just want to escape reality now and then to see life in a different light, to experience the world from a different perspective. Travel might change them, might make them happier. They might even come back as a stronger & better person.
It’s not what travel can do to you, but what you can learn from others and yourself when you travel.
The action of leaving your home country for the horizon with a rugged backpack will probably feel like an accomplishment of happiness. But that moment of departure will only be the start of a lot more.
You may come back as a wealthier man/woman. Richer in experience, that is.
Your mind might change and you might become more less-caring about materialism and money. Yes, visiting the ends of the world will have a great impact on you.
It happened to me and it will probably also happen to you.
