The joy of travel could never be described in words. The joy of travel has to be experienced in order to be appreciated. The joy of travel starts with the decision to take a backpack and ride the bus going nowhere. The joy of travel could be experienced through a planned trip or the decision to hike a trail that has never been covered before. The joy of travel could be enhanced significantly by writing about it.
An inspired writer contended that there is nothing more pleasurable than combining the joy of travel and writing.
This writer remarked that he has been all over the world’s backyard and added that he could never deny the blissful feeling of escape.
He said that traveling to exotic destinations gave him the inspiration to write. He said that through exploration he was able to discover new things. He said that an adventurous lifestyle that enable a person to travel at a moment’s notice is an example of how men and women should seize every moment.
There is another side to travel and writing; it is a way to rediscover the lost nomadic art of blazing a trail for others to follow. However, it sounds easy to do but when the rubber meets the road many potential road warriors shiver at the thought that they might encounter problems along the way.
There are many obstacles to travel. The first major obstacle is the fear of the unknown. For seasoned travelers, it is the mystery of the exotic places that compel them to travel. But for novice travelers, the unknown seems to overwhelm and suffocates their soul.
The second major reason why people do not travel is that they could not get past the preparation stage. At the end of the day, the potential tourist backs off, because of the need to put in a great deal of work. Thus, it is sometimes advisable to travel without a definite plan in mind or at least focus on one destination but never plan in detail such as where to stay for the night or what restaurant to dine in. It is also better to visit exotic places and stay away from the beaten path.
Aside from discovering something new, the decision to abandon the tourist guide means that the traveler has the ability to experience the feeling of being alive as the senses soaks in ideas and other external stimuli that gets absorbed when the traveler fails to plan.
