When being away from your home country for a long time you’ll always carry a bit of homesickness within your heart, no matter where in the world you are. Of course I can only speak for myself here, maybe others feel completely different. I truly… Weiterlesen »Homesick? What I miss about Germany.

„How do you afford to travel so much?“ A question I get quite regularly so I’m touching upon this topic as I like to talk openly about these things and I always appreciate it when other people do. First of all: No, I’m not rich,… Weiterlesen »How do I afford to travel so much?
Tomorrow I’m leaving for a two-week trip and I’m always pretty nervous before leaving. As soon as I have reached my destination, everything is fine. So, I’m actually not scared about visiting other countries, just the thought of how to get there stresses me out a little.… Weiterlesen »How to deal better with being anxious and nervous before a trip.
At least once in your life. Travelling with other people and being able to share these memories with them when you’re back home is amazing but travlling alone also is. Why? Here are some reasons.. Travelling alone is a big challenge. From the moment you… Weiterlesen »Why you should travel alone.
Today I went to the swimming pool as I didn’t want to go running outside because of the grey and rainy weather. Watching the children there and how excited they are made me think back to my childhood. I remembered how I was the same as a child.… Weiterlesen »To feel like a child again.
When I told my parents that my plan is to get a job, save some money and then quit (if I have to) to travel a lot because I haven’t seen enough of this world yet, their first reaction was “But you have to start working again after studying and get a safe job. You didn’t work a lot so far and you have to think of your retirement. You’re already turning 27 this year!”.
But should your age really keep you from doing what you want? Leaving aside that fact that 27 isn’t old.. I even think being over 30, 40 oder 50 is not too old to start travelling. Some people only realise later in life what they truly want to do and what they’ve been missing out on so far. So should these people like me say “Okay, now it’s too late, bad luck.. I’ll bury my dreams, work for my retirement and die”? I don’t think so.. Of course, maybe it would’ve been smarter to go travelling directly after I’d finished school with 18 but I didn’t even think of this. I was quite a different person back then and didn’t have this desire to travel but now I do. I think you always should do what feels best for you at the present time. And even if I experienced a lot of things back then, should this mean not going on with this when I’m older?
Unfortunately not in too many countries.. yet. 😉 I just counted them: Austria, Italy/Sicily, Spain/Mallorca/Tenerife, Portugal, France, The Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden & Norway. So I never left Europe.. hopefully my next trip will be to a non-Europe country. 🙂 Make yours @ BigHugeLabs.com
