I have a small chocolate addiction. I can eat it everyday. my favorite one is kinder chocolate. it is also chocolate that makes me think of traveling. Im talking about Toblerone. I remember the times when the big Toblerone bars were available only at airports in free duty stores and ever since then I have always associated Toblerone with travelling. I always buy one or two as gifts for friends and they seem to appreciate it.
Traveling isn't as easy as people might think. As interesting as it might sound when you tell people about all the countries you visited and all the things you did there, it is often tiring. After a few weeks of travelling you start thinking about going home and finally having a good night sleep in your own bed. You always arrive in new places where you dont know anyone and anything. You have to figure out where to go, which bus to take and you have to be sure you dont miss your plane. There is some planning involved which i suck at to be honest. my motto is that when nothing is planned everything can happen
Based on my experience people go backpacking for two main reasons. They have either ended a relationship or they hate the job they are doing. in either of the scenarios they seek distraction and new meaning in life. Going to new places give you distance and perspective. Often the problems that you face occupy all your mind and you forget about all other things. But when you leave your environment and force yourself out of your comfort zone by talking to random strangers or doing things you never did before you start to gain distance again. It gives you perspective and it makes you realize things you havent realized before. I admit this is what im doing myself now.
There is also other people who can be seen as cocky and who consider themselves better only cu they travel. Others are lost in their life and as fascinating as their lives might seem, they often are not.
I love traveling. i wanna see and do as much as i can. I constantly want to do new things. it makes my life better. i just talked to a French guy passionate about astronomy and secret societies. We talked about the possibility of the second star being present in our solar system and the influence it has on Earth. There is research to back it up too. I admire his passion and i wanna rediscover it in myself too. All these people touch our lives in a certain way. They help you grow as persons and enrich your life. That is why i wanna travel more and more and become an experienced traveller.
