How To Make Your Travel Adventurous and Satisfying

If there is one piece of advice I have for people today to experience more joy in life, it is to travel more. I don’t mean taking vacations or going on pre-planning trips, I mean making the journey out to somewhere you’ve never gone before to let life show you what opportunities were waiting for you that you couldn’t have even imaged before. But the question is “How To Make Your Travel Adventurous and Satisfying”? Make your adventure more fun and wonderful with the following proven hacks that we prepare for you!

PACK EVERYTHING!TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

It’s important to pack everything up few days before your trip to avoid forgetting your . Don’t be a late packer because we all know the struggle of just throwing your things on your suitcase in the last minute of your preparations and found out that you forgot something when you arrive on your destination. Make sure that you have the list of everything that you have to bring!

Be A Traveler

BE A TRAVELER AND NOT A TOURIST

A tourist may carry a camera, guidebook and map at all times and tend to stay in their comfort zones, while traveler is someone try to immerse himself in the local culture rather than standing out. If you’re a traveler, you may try to explore the less-traveled areas and explore locations where tourism doesn’t drive the economy. Make new friends, engage with the people, eat local and stay local! So ARE YOU A TRAVELER OR A TOURIST?

SUPPORT CHARITIES

Support Charities

Have a purpose while travelling!
Don’t just travel to be happy but try to help other people who are in need. Be useful, be compassionate and make some difference! This will help you engage with the local people as well! Always remember that you can HELP CHARITIES WITHOUT GIVING MONEY.

EXPLORE AND DISCOVER

Wherever you go always remember to explore and find new adventures to try! Avoid to stick on what’s familiar, instead discover exotic foods, different ways of transportation and new adventure experiences such as skydiving, bungy jumping, jet boating, rafting, caving, canyoning and a lot more!

GET LOSTGet Lost
Go for a walk and just wander! No apps, no maps! Turn off the WiFi and forget the GPS, getting lost is a great way to become familiar with a place and stumble upon unexpected things. You’ll surely love the feeling o
f freedom and discovery that comes from wandering.

CHERISH EVERY MOMENTCherish Every Moment

Allow yourself the time and serenity to experience the place you’re going to. Don’t keep rushing from one end to another. Sometimes it’s important to sense the ambiance of a place has to offer. For that, you should spend some good enough time rather than trying to pack up pretty soon. You should avoid taking excessive pictures and using social media while you’re on a trip too, because sometimes we didn’t have the chance to cherish the feeling of being on a certain place because we’re too busy taking pictures to upload on social media. Always remember, the best moments in life are usually not captured.

    A great read! I am a notorious last minute packer, but I pre-pack in my mind leading up to the actually exercise, so it’s similar.

    It’s true that just wandering around will yield the best immersion experiences! Going off the beaten path is what will add the color to your travel experience!

    Volunteering is something that I intend on looking deeper into while on journeys. A fellow blogger over at http://beerandabackpack.com has been putting up some good material on volunteering as he is on a long volunteer trip right now. Give him a look!

      Thanks for the comments Joel. I hope you got a bit of value from the post. I will check out the link!

  2. I love this post. I particularly like that you highlight the difference between a traveler and a tourist. I totally know what you mean about not taking too many pictures but I always seem to be the person that doesn’t take enough (or any!). Good excuse to go back to those places though!

  3. ahhh the old traveller/tourist debate. I like to think I’m a traveller, but when I’m rushed on my journey trying to see all the top things to see I think I turn into a tourist. Thanks for this post. It’s reminded me to slow down and immerseyself in the culture of a place to really experience it even if it means missing out on some of the big tourist attractions the guide book recommendations.

  4. Very nicely written! I agree with basically everything, especially taking so many photos that you can’t enjoy whatever you’re doing (unless you enjoy taking photos :D)

  5. The last paragraph is perfect! My first trip to Europe I was so focused on getting the perfect pictures. I had a camera in one hand and my phone in the other! By the end of the 12 days I learned to just stop, put down the camera and the phone and enjoy the moment. Who cares what friends and family see on social media? The amazing stories are all that mattered. Great Blog!
