Have you had a moment where this thought crossed your mind, ‘What is my travel story?’
Some people find it difficult to articulate where they want to go and think they are unadventurous or lack the passion for traveling. On the other hand, people who are introverts by nature feel this way because they love being indoors or in their comfort zone. Consequently, when others share stories of places they have been and what they have done, you feel left out.
The truth remains that we all have travel stories. We have places we have been to and lived in that others long to visit; places we’ve been to that others have experienced differently. More importantly, we have many pages to add to our travel story with every breath we take.
The trick to creating fulfilling travel experiences is not by traveling to places everyone talks about; it is about being in places that speak to your soul. Moments like these are worth the days spent squirreling away funds to experience.
The easiest way to create your perfect travel story is by delving into the things that bring you joy. It would make a poor travel story if you are acrophobic and spend both time and resources planning a tour that includes bungee jumping. An activity that seems like fun to others might end up being a traumatic experience for you.
It would be exciting, however, if you are a book lover and you plan a trip with the Tianjin Binhai Library, China, on your travel list. The library’s iconic architectural structure and the wide array of books would make it a travel experience you are unlikely to forget.
For people who do not have a fixed place in mind to visit but love to exchange travel stories, trips to popular places are the best option. The Effiel Tower in Paris, Yosemite National Park in California, Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and Hawaii beaches are some popular travel destinations.
You don’t necessarily have to break the bank to create a fulfilling travel experience. Although factors like the location of your travel destination, duration of your stay, and accommodation plans can hike your travel budget, you can plan a trip that doesn’t cost much in these areas.
A great way to cut down the cost of travel is by traveling as a group to have access to discounts on accommodation and feeding. The best way to have a travel experience within budget is to plan the details of your trip and start saving towards it beforehand.
In all, it is important to note that places that bring you excitement create exciting travel experiences. So don’t sweat the fact that you aren’t super thrilled by what Paris has to offer. Plan a trip to where calls to you the most. And if you aren’t sure where to go, try looking for the places said to give the best services in what brings you the most comfort, and plan for a trip there!
