Hey there, fellow world traveler!

If you made it to my blog you were most likely already bitten by the travel bug and there will be no cure for that, I’m afraid.

 

Do you also believe that your precious life is way too short to sit at a desk and stare at a computer all day long?

You’re working endless hours of unpaid overtime, desperately waiting for the weekend or a few days of annual leave to come, so you can finally do what you want? Sadly, most people in modern society think and live exactly this way. They work their asses off to make a career, pay off their mortgage or buy expensive cars. Although they are making good money, they are stuck in a rut and don’t get to live their lives to the fullest.

I don’t believe in this way of life. I don’t even want to call this a “way of life”. I do not want to be limited in my freedom and I am trying to live my life as freely and independently as possible – not having to give up traveling plays a major role in that.

What I love about traveling so much?

Once you start traveling, you can never get enough. If you love traveling as much as I do, you know this feeling too well. This certain feeling when you’re about to embark on a new exciting adventure. It’s really hard to put this incredible feeling down in words but I tried to make a list of what makes traveling so special to me:

Unforgettable encounters with locals, going on spontaneous adventures, the endless sense of freedom, rainbows, scuba diving, climbing behind waterfalls, the sound of waves, the smell of summer rain, roaring summer storms on tropical islands, setting up my hammock at the craziest spots, watching shooting stars, bonfires on the beach, delicious street food and deep midnight conversations with strangers who share the same opinion about life.

Make the most of your life, explore this amazing planet we live on and do not wait until you’re 65. Who knows if you’ll still be able to do so or if you’ll even make it there?

Take your chances, dare to DREAM BIG and don’t let anybody tell you what you should or shouldn’t do. Discover as much as you can. Honestly: Do you want to look back on your life and constantly ask yourself  “What if…?”. Do you want to worry about all of the wasted opportunities, all of the amazing things you could have done but didn’t do and then think to yourself sadly: “If only I had…?”

Exactly.

You should only regret the chances that you didn’t take. Never miss a chance of living every moment of your precious life to the fullest. One day, I will tell my grandchildren about my journeys and adventures – with a smile on my face and a sparkle in my eyes.

One day, I want to look back upon my life and proudly say to myself:

Wow, I can’t believe I did all of that!

I hope my blog inspires you to sail away from the safe harbor and explore this awesome world with me!
