How to travel more

Many people often complain that they don’t get the chance to travel much, but travel doesn’t always have to be about going to the other side of the world to find adventure. Here are some great ways to fit more travel into your life.

Explore your own country

Many people never really take the opportunity to explore their own country fully, thinking they can do it at any time. This is a real shame, because every country has something new and exciting to offer. Many lifestyle and travel blogs or magazines, like Beyond Words, can provide you with a bit of inspiration into some places that you might want to visit.

Another advantage of exploring your own country is that you don’t have to do a lot of planning because you are still using the same currency and it is much easier to organize.

Go away on the weekends

Another common excuse that people have for not traveling is that they don’t have enough time. So why not do your travel on the weekends? Think about central Europe as an example, from most locations it is possible to get to most places within 3 hours and this gives you ample time to get the feel for a new city.

Make it a long weekend

When you decide to take your holidays it may be a good idea to take some shorter breaks and take advantage of the weekends, this can give you the extra day or two that you need to experience somewhere special. This could be much better than using up all your time off from work to travel to one place for a few weeks.

Spend your money on the important things

Probably the biggest thing stopping people from traveling is money. This is understandable. Accommodation is probably one of the most significant expenses when traveling, and many people opt to stay in hotels when they don’t really need to. A good idea is to try out some alternative travel options like Airbnb for accommodation, especially because you get to live like a local and if you are lucky enough you may even have a guide in your host. This could prove to be a much more authentic and memorable experience, and you will also have the opportunity to meet new people.

You may not have the most money in the world, but still want to go to exotic locations, so save your money wisely and consider alternative travel options.
