Have you ever dreamed of packing up your life and traveling the world? Well, it might not be as far-fetched as you think. Full time travel is increasingly becoming a popular lifestyle choice for many adventurers, seasoned and newbies. Is it really as glamorous as it seems? Whether you choose to work remotely or take a break from work altogether, there are many benefits to full-time travel that make it an enticing option for those looking for new experiences. You also need to be prepared for the reality.. so let's talk about it!!!
WHY should you consider it?
The Freedom of Movement
One of the main draws of full-time travel is the idea of being FREE!!. Can you sing FREEEDOM FREEDDOMMM!!! You are no longer tied down by a physical job holding you in one location or even better a 9-5 lifestyle; instead, you can explore new places, meet new people, and live a new adventure whenever you want. It's a great way to break free from the monotony that can set in when you are stuck in a routine for too long. Not that , that is a bad thing.. But for some, like myself, monotony can be depressing. Considering Freedom of movement offers you plenty of time for self-reflection, which can be incredibly beneficial for your mental health. Don't get it twisted. Even self reflection can have you whirling if you don' know how to manage it. But that's a blog for a different day. You also have the freedom to go where you want, when you want. With no set schedules or designated dates, travelers can remain spontaneous and take advantage of any opportunities that arise without feeling restricted by plans already made or obligations already fulfilled elsewhere. This kind of flexibility allows them the chance to get off the beaten path and explore areas that were previously off limits due their prior commitments back home.
Full-time travel gives you experiences that are unique and unforgettable on a different level from that annual vacation. imagine tasting authentic street food in Thailand to taking in breathtaking views on top of a mountain in Kenya, imagine those experiences with no time limit... or at least less of a rush. Think about doing cool travel excursions and experiences without having to worry about work obligations or other commitments or having the feeling of being overwhelmed.
Traveling full-time can provide incredible personal growth as well as deeper cultural understanding and awareness. I mean way more than we get from text books and media. Imagine having time and mental space to discover new passions or hobbies you may never have had the chance to explore before! That's what Full- time travel can give you. What if your true passion is buried under all the things you do because you are focused on the daily grind. Nothing wrong with that, but what if you could live everyday fulfilling your purpose and it came from more travel? I'm just saying...
What if I told you full-time travel isn't as expensive as many people think it is – especially if know how to do it! With careful budgeting and research into affordable accommodations and transportation options, traveling full time can actually be quite affordable and often is just because you can get much better deals off season and with longer stays. Full time travel can also mean cutting out expenses like rent or mortgages & reoccurring bills freeing up funds you didn't know you could have access to. ESPECIALLY, if you choose a place with lower living expense than you had. There are some cool ways to afford amazing travel experiences without breaking the bank or needing 100s of thousands of dollars to start. So yep this means anyone with an adventurous spirit and some willingness to take calculated risks can become a full-time traveler. That anyone can be YOU!
Full-time travel has become more than a trend a few travelers are writing about. It has become so popular over the past few years due to all the many benefits we talked about and even more we didn't get to. Whether you're looking for freedom from your day job or just want an escape from everyday life for a while, consider giving full-time travel a try – you never know where your travels will lead you! Who knows - maybe one day you will be sitting in a place trying to remember what day of the week it is, or what time of the day it is because you are FREE to just live!
So as I always say...
"Experiences are Better than Dreams!"
