I just wanted to say hello. My name is Jessica and I love traveling at anytime I can squeeze it in my schedule. So I can start connecting with everyone, I would love to know what keeps you all from traveling and why? Look forward to hearing back from everyone!
Hi Jessica, I'm a newbie in this community as well and I am very optimistic that I can learn more here any information related to travel.
Hi jessica!! just my 2 cents. i like to travel because life is about collecting experiences, the more you collect meaningful experiences, the more your life is fulfilled, meaningful and well-spent.
Welcome, jessica!! This is a nice platform to share your travel experiences and knowledge about different places with other people. If you are also a travel lover like me then you will definitely enjoy to be a part of this community.
Good that you made your way to this great forum!
What do you exactly mean with your question? Would you like to know what keeps people from travelling (so why they don't travel?) or why people do travel? :P
Things that kept me from travelling for a longer period in the past were mainly my studies and my job, and money. But soon I will get my degree and quit my job, so I will have the time to travel for a long period (I think 6 - 12 months).
And the reason why I love to travel is mainly that I want to see the world, and also my urge to experience complete freedom. I feel this longing to experience complete freedom without having any obligations is as important to me as the travelling itself (ie. experience life in other countries, meet interesting people, etc). Just the feeling when I arrive in an exotic place and not being sure if I will still be there the next week or will leave within 2 days feels great to me: being able to do whatever I want without having a schedule. This feeling originates form something I found out during my first backpack trip and which enriched my life: the feeling that I could go (almost) anywhere in the world on my own without much planning and without having to doubt if it would be easy to make it: it is always easy if there are people. As long as you have enough money, that is
So why do you love to travel?
