Travelling is tiring.
I know it sounds ridiculous to many, but travelling is tiring. I know, you’re probably thinking, “Oh come on! You don’t have to work, you get to see awesome places, have freedom” etc. Yes, that’s true and I am not complaining at all. I am very grateful for all the travelling I have been able to do and I absolutely love it with a passion! But there are times when I just want to stop. Stop thinking about: where I’m going to next? Where will I sleep tomorrow? What great places should I explore in my next destination? Will I get good wifi to research the next destination, book accommodation, etc. It’s a completely different type of tiredness to the day to day “normal” living.
Travelling is amazing but it is important to stop and be present in your environment. When you’re moving from one destination to another in a matter of days, that is tiring and that is when you just need to stop. Allow yourself a break. Feel fresh and motivated for your next hike, your next long drive, your next mini adventure; whatever it may be. You want to enjoy the journey and for that you need energy.
I just wanted to share that for anyone considering travelling because some things you just need to be aware of. Yes, it is fantastic, you’re free to do what you like when you like but some times all you want to do is stop. Have a day doing nothing, reading, writing, watching television or just pigging out with a movie! It’s totally fine and you need days like that to recoup and start fresh again. Don’t get so tired that you miss out on something incredible.
I just wanted to share that with you, and if you’re off on any travels then ENJOY! Just remember, it’s ok to take a break.
