When you’re on holiday you’re in this little bubble. All the problems or issues you had seems to stay frozen in your home country. You take a break from the regular bustle of your life, put it on pause and say, ‘you know what I’ll come back to you later’. You go, spoil yourself with food, amazing service and you immerse yourself in new cultures and communities – see the other side of the world. And something about that makes life that bit easier to come back to. I don’t know what it is about seeing and experiencing how other people live that gives you a new perspective on how to live your own life. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that we detach ourselves from ourselves, as in we get out of our own head a little bit and take a step back, see the bigger picture. You might not even know what that picture looks like, but you process it, take it in and consider it. And it feels great.
I love travelling. I love everything about it. From booking and planning what to do and see in that country. To packing (or over packing in my case) your bags with your best fits to put your best foot forward in that country. To boarding the plane, using a mode of transport that is not your everyday norm. to arriving in the country, that very first breath of air you take in that country. All the way down to exploring and holidaying, meeting new people, eating new foods, experiencing new cultures, traditions and routines to just really making the most of every minute you’re there. And even the act of coming back to your home country, adds to the experience of travelling, because as I mentioned earlier, you arrive with this brand new or refined perspective which makes you excited to do better and gives you a new vim to live your life just that bit fuller. And as we all know, there is really no place like home.
