Start with local adventures

If you’ve only been on hotel-centered vacations and have yet to travel further afield for any length of time, consider starting a local adventure for the weekend, or even just for a day. Wherever you live, the options for a hiking trip can’t be too far from home but if walking isn’t your thing, look into kayaking, trail riding, horse riding, rock climbing or anything to take you out of your normal comfort zone. Make sure you research and choose quality lightweight daypacks and backpacks that have varying qualities and functions suitable for the type for trip you’re planning as the design you choose will depend on what you’re likely to pack.

Always stay safe

However you plan your next adventure you should think about any safety or associated risks that could be involved. Always check out the latest travel advice from reliable sources in case you have to take into account any travel warnings for that country or destination. Get prepared and, if necessary, make sure you have vaccinations in time for the day of your departure.

  1. Travelling is also a way easing tension and recreating your mind😄thanks for this post because i have never thought of considering the hazards of any trip or the problem associated with the country, now you mentioned it here, i will start to consider it😍 very important.

  2. YOU ARE SUCH A FANTASTIC HUMAN. i love your posts so much. as i recover from anorexia, i have realized that it is SO IMPORTANT to open up my world to new experiences, cultures, countries, and people after living in an illness that kept me smothered in an existence FAR too dark and small. so, i’m going to india in six weeks and my visa was just granted! here’s to wanderlust, dear. here’s to life and to the world and to broadened horizons. so much love to you. and a million thanks.

  3. I think safety is a big thing people forget when travelling, so I’m glad you covered this in detail! There are some great travel tips here, grey post overall!

  4. I really appreciated the links you provided along with the step by step process. Super helpful.

  5. loved your tips! I love traveling but unfortunately I’ll just start college and it is not common in my country to start working before college so I don’t really have money just a little allowance that my mum give to me. So I think that for the moment I’ll have to stick with my parents to travel a little bit and if all works out in some years I’ll be taking your advices and go traveling on my own, can’t wait for it!! and just a quick question, Which camera do you use, the one in your pic? P.S. I am a little obsessed with cameras as well.

    1. That’s a good idea and pictures in this post are not taken by me, there’s a direct link below each one of them though so maybe you can check it there ☺.

  6. Lucky you, where I’m from we need visas to travel and this discourages travelling out for adventure. Thankfully I love hiking and this helped alot

  8. Great tips! And after 15 years of living and working abroad in 6 countries on 4 continents, I would add one more incredibly important tip–get rid of expectations. Things are rarely as we imagine they might be, but travel can turn out to be even better than one imagines if individuals remain open to new experiences, and of these trying moments as learning experiences rather than challenges, especially when dealing with different languages and customs. If you remain open to all the new experiences presented by a new destination, you’ll be greatly rewarded with memories to last a lifetime!

  9. Love your blog, I have recently started mine and enjoying ti so much – Would love some advice on how to get a few more followers! I will be going on a 4 month trip next Thursday round Cuba, Jamaica, Costa Rica and Guatemala if you’d like to see my adventures 🙂

  10. I just love how you gave motivation for travel dreamers. Furthermore, let’s also think of our own safety. People somehow forget about this. Anyhow, I’m having a great read. Thanks.

  11. Nice post! I really want to travel, but I find that even going to a campground 30 miles away with my wife and enjoying nature is enough to amaze me. Starting locally!

  12. Great tips! I started out traveling around the US with my family, which turned into a student exchange to Korea, which turned into moving there as an ESL teacher, which is now turning into an indefinite backpacking adventure! You never know where a small step can take you!
