George Moore–an Irish nationality novelist once said: “A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it.” Is that what really happening to you? Many of us are even have been traveling around the world, thanks God, you may are even possible for that. But seriously, did you find thing(s) you are really need?
I do really love taking pictures in an archipelagic islands of Maldives or at the lesser island of Flores through Komodo Sailing trip. But what for? Isn’t there should be the other things more than just “I need a trip to get rid off the noisy daily routines”?
We are all have been paying much for a luxury travel just to enjoy things we called as the travel experiences and not getting disturbed by anyone. We may are even dreaming about an excellent place to stay in Bali, but again, nothing left but a bunch of selfies, some recorded videos that you have actually been posted on your Instagram’s story, and travel stories that most of the parts will likely to be forgotten in the next few months or a year.
That will be a truly expensive trip ever if you don’t really get what you are actually need and don’t find things that are more than just what the travel packages have been offered.
I may sounds like an old wrinkle wise man with a long white beard here, but I think that it should be worthwhile since there may not many people are talking about this topic. In the other hands, we do really need a life wisdom where as I believe, traveling is part of how we are going to get it.
When we are heading to a new country, we will see different cultures, arts, religions, way of life and many more. Then, what? Bringing back a story how delicious the restaurants you have been visited are? Or how a way of life of the local people were giving you insights on how you will living the life in a better way?
Everything we do must had a purpose. We were traveling by thinking that we need a holiday retreat to forget the works for a moment. That might be a true, but later, ever since we will keep on getting stresses at work, then does it mean that we will keep on traveling as well? What if you can’t even afford for any type of travel you are dreaming about?
All I want to say is actually simple, it doesn’t matter where you are going and how many times of travel you will need in a month, I am going to make you remember one important thing which is; never forget to discovery yourself!
Explore the destinations is good and interesting, but we should also admit that each time we are going in a trip, that can also be a spiritual journey for finding ourselves. And sometimes, what have you been looking for in a long trip is actually has been existed around you for so long.
