"My heart is warm with friends I make, and better friends I'll not be knowing. Yet there isn't a train I wouldn't take, no matter where it's going." Edna St. Vincent Millay
When wanderlust is calling, no one can stop, avoid, or decline its voice. It is like a constant hum in the mind, and helpful, too; there are so many friends to make, and so many more journeys to take, on which you can learn lots and lots in life. Without travel, life is only a task to perform, only a chore to do.
Travel for experience and wisdom, for knowing the world, but more importantly for knowing oneself. Travel for work and for fun, but more for the delight of it. Travel – by all means, travel. Life is short, and there is so much to know and learn. Even if money is short, go ahead and take that plunge; earn on the holiday, and make it an art to live in small means. Travel teaches you to live better and fuller. Someone with wanderlust will tell you how they feel they need to travel again, as soon as they land back home. This is how addictive it is. This is what the essence of life is.
Travel also teaches you how to save your life, and it's indeed important to save one while on a trip – people are waiting behind them, and their safety means more trips in the future! We hope this book has covered all aspects there are to the same. We have tried to give you an all-around approach regarding all the areas worthy of focus for a happy travel experience, and we sincerely hope it is enough information. Destination – wise tips and hacks – can be found in abundance on websites and apps present en masse over the Internet and smart phone app stores.
The travel bug is viral these days, even more so because everyone knows there are awesome places to go; they have the spunk and adventure to take the chance, and there are better means for people to travel extensively. Everyone is posting beautiful pictures on social media, which is an inspiration for common folk to make some life goals, pack those damn bags, and leave. These days, travel is more for the soul, and mostly for social media! If your iPhone allows you to click and post a photo in 2 seconds and the entire Internet can share your picture in no time, why not post a travel picture?
Inspired to make a fuller life, people travel. They take a trip to understand themselves, to sustain themselves.
