The term globetrotter always fascinate me. I admire those who enjoy travelling to see the world. Travelling is not just about getting out of your shell to see different countries and learn about different cultures.
Travelling is another way of being nice to yourself simply because you deserve it. It fundamentally transforms us and sometimes when you break free from the regular hustle and bustle routine of our daily lives, travelling wakes up your soul and rejuvenates you.
Other than that, travelling also expands our mind and encourages flexibility. Of course, there are also concerns about not being able to afford holiday expenses. Personally, I am concern about it too. I used to worry about holiday expenses and live on the excuse of not being able to afford holidays. Deep down inside I know I deserve it and not long after that, I realized that I no longer want to give myself excuses anymore and decided to appreciate holidays and trips whenever opportunities arises. Like the saying goes, when there's a will, there's a way.
