Going on a big trip can be an amazing experience. You get to explore the world and see things in a completely new perspective. Such travel plans always feel like they’re out of reach, but with the right mindset you can make them a reality.
So often we hear people question whether they have the time to actually go and travel.
Can I afford to travel now? What about my job, my career? Grad school?
Heck, will the trip even be worth it?
Every journey starts with a single step. And those who wait to travel the world, never do. If you’re convincing yourself that one day you’ll make it happen, believe us you won’t.
The older you get, the more life will hold you back.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.” – Mark Twain
