Spring has arrived and you may be experiencing a sense of restlessness. Winter has been spent with indoor activities, shoveling snow, or winter activities and warmer weather beckons for a change of pace. Reduce this sense of restlessness traveling locally, nationally, or internationally to explore new wonders.
It is amazing how just taking a casual walk can awaken our senses for adventure.
Traveling is Sensual
Traveling may be defined as sensual because you use all six senses. Going to, being at, and leaving your destination will have you experiencing sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and your sixth or instinct sense. Travel satisfies the physical, mental, and spiritual restlessness within our being. It’s fun.
Your finances will govern traveling choices. Do not let a low budget discourage you from traveling. There are many activities sponsored in local communities ranging from free to just a few dollars.
If you live in a tourist state, I recommend visiting those attractions which tourists come to see before leaving your state. Often times when traveling you will meet other people and they often ask the question, “what is your home state?“ And then they will ask about a specific place to visit. They are very disappointed when they learn that you have not been to that site or activity.
National traveling fulfills the desire of the grass being greener on the other side and seemingly offers more excitement than your local area. Plan your trip to include what you want to do as well as a backup plan or substitute if for any reason your want cannot be possible.
An example of this happened to us when we went to see the Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona. It rained and visibility was extremely poor. We picked up some post cards and went to another choice. For most of us vacation time is short, time marches on, and every hour is valuable.
A camera is a must when traveling. Capture on film whatever gives you visual pleasure. Or you may wish to sketch or keep a written journal.
International traveling is for the experienced traveler. Are you a rookie? I recommend joining a group. It is safer and the tourist company knows the popular attractions which foreign guests are interested in.
