Most people view travel as a luxury. They only wait until they’ve saved extra money or secured someone to babysit their child to book a ticket and fly off to see a new part of this world. You may be revolted by the fact that I think travel is always possible – within limits, of course. For my part, I try to squeeze in a trip any chance I get as I truly believe travel is an experience worth investing in. It helps you broaden your perspective, de-dramatize otherwise catastrophic situations and understand (or should I say accept) people’s behavior better.
I believe my sister Mia gives the most inspiring gifts. Last Christmas, she gave Jean that awesome book that marked me from page one. To quote a part of the intro:
We’ve all seen the bottom of a cup-o-noodle, more than once. So how can you afford to travel? By redefining travel to be more about hostels and street food and less about resorts and cruises, the biggest initial expense then comes down to that first flight out of the country.
I’d love to know your thoughts about this! In your opinion, is travel a luxury or a necessity?
