How to enjoy your life through traveling

What is travelling to you? A celebratory trip to a far-off country, a year out travelling in Europe or simply a relaxing break from your day-to-day life? Whether you’re the type of person who likes something exotic and far flung or someone searching for a more local getaway, travelling is a great way to take a fresh look at life. When viewed as a lifestyle, simple travelling becomes traveliving (combination of travel and living) and it really can spice things up. After all, what better way to learn about different cultures than to experience them for yourself?

A travel lifestyle may well be associated with the self employed and those that run their own businesses, but it really is open to anyone who loves to experience the history and varied life of distant places.

Backpacking may not be to everyone’s taste but it’s a great way to start this lifestyle choice. As long as you travel in pairs or groups and take advice on the best places to stay and go, it’s a safe and enjoyable experience and one that can be repeated time and time again. Start with a holiday in Europe and progress to more distant places as you become more experienced. You might end up backpacking around India or South America once you are more confident.

Alternatively, for those that associate travel with the mystery of the deep blue sea, a boat or ship can prove the perfect way to invest in traveliving. Travel on a cargo ship or sailboat to really experience what it’s like to ride the waves and, if funds allow, hire a car when you arrive at each new destination.

While you may feel like staying in a place you particularly like, the time to leave always signals the start of a new adventure elsewhere and the continuation of your role as a traveler. No matter whether you stay three months or ten years in a country, the craving for more new experiences is likely to drive you onwards.

Although some people may opt for a part-time travel lifestyle, others see it as a full-time occupation and adopt a nomadic lifestyle. For those that choose to take the plunge and live life in travel, the key to a fun and enjoyable life is to keep things simple.

Get rid of any possession that you don’t need, cancel accounts and subscriptions that are not relevant and make a list of your favorite places. Put them in order of preference and keep an open mind for opportunities to travel that may occur that you’ve not yet considered. Make sure you do your research before you go, learn a little of the language and ensure that you understand the local customs and laws.

A life in travel may well require a little work now and again, but you’ll reap the rewards later as you begin your new journey. Passive book learning will soon enough turn to active participation and will bring a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘studying at the University of Life’.

While school tours may seem an insignificant part of an individual’s desire to travel, it is by far the best way to begin learning about travelling as a lifestyle. School tours make travel simple, easy and lots of fun and although they may well be a million miles away from the seasoned life of a traveler abroad, they can be the start of a career and lifestyle that involves many new and exciting places.

  • Hey Praveen,

    I use to think that I’d like to some day travel around the US in an RV.  I did that when I was younger, travel to one destination and I had a blast.  My uncle does that some so I always thought that would be a neat way to travel.  Not sure if I feel the same way now.

    I like to travel for short periods of time only because I don’t sleep well when I’m not in my own bed and I’m one of those people who needs a good nights sleep.  Too many restless nights and I make myself sick.  That’s no fun at all.

    Traveling is something I’d like to do more of as the years go by so who knows.  

    • Hi Adrienne – Thanks for stopping by. I can imagine how much fun those roadtrips might have been for you as a kid. 

      Travelling is always fun and everytime a new experience for me, i do like to visit new places and get to know the routine day-to-day life there. It is usually an eye-opener to learn new culture and practices at all the new places one can visit. 

      Of course, as rightly said by you, I would always miss my bed and my pillow…nothing like “home sweet home” at the end :))

  • My dream is to be absent for 3-4 months and take a huge tour of our world. There are so many places to see but that’s not only it. It is a lifestyle! You become a better person when you have traveled a lot.

  • Hi Praveen,

    I’m getting ready to do some traveling myself.  We are going to  Puerta Villarta (I think that’s how it’s spelled) for a nice business retreat and planning session.

    It will be my first time visiting Mexico.  Looking forward to enjoying some time out of the country.


    • Bryce – That sounds like fun, hope you enjoy and get some bright ideas for your posts from your visit there. 

      I have heard a lot of exotic places in mexico and i wish i can make it there sometime soon. 

  • I find that travel can take work at times, but it is so worth it.  Last year I went to Ireland.  Next month I’ll be in London and Paris.  Later this year, I’ll be spending a few months in Morocco.  I’ve been to a lot of places and it just makes me want to see more.

    I’m not some digital nomad either.  While I make a good sum of money online, I don’t make enough to live off of it entirely.  What I do is just make travel a priority.  That’s the best thing to have when you want to see the world.

  • For me, traveling is always the best way to get out of the routine and have fun at the same time.
    Also, it is the best natural heel to the stress of the daily life and struggles I have experienced.
