Preparing For Long Term Travel

Preparing For Long Term Travel
Not everyday does someone say they’re leaving the country and not coming back for some months and even years. Most of the average population would call you crazy. Everyone wants to travel but who actually does? You! Yes, You!

What I really want to focus on talking about today is the mental aspect of this. It can be one of the most important factors. When you tell your family and friends you’re planning this trip you expect the best response. However, sometimes that is not always the case. You must prepare for the best and worst outcome.

Many traveler’s may experience disapproval from their family or friends. This can be hard to swallow. What you should not do is take it to heart. If this is something you want to do go ahead and do it! If you let others opinion’s effect your decisions you will never be happy in life. It’s a shame some people feel so opinionated on what you do. Always follow your heart and dreams! No matter what!

Now, since I got that out there you’re probably thinking okay where are the other tips? All I can say is plan but in moderation. What works best for me is planning the first few destinations then just going with the flow. Why do I do this? If you’re backpacking you might be somewhere and totally change your itinerary so sometimes it is best to have leeway. Last tip: the money. Save money like your grandmother told you and save, save, save. Cut expenses like eating out and unnecessary buying.

I hope you enjoyed this little bit! Remember, travel smart, and live easy! Please comment and let me know your experience’s or tips! I would love to hear them!

Adios…

Time has flown by I can’t believe it. Living in Mexico was one of the most difficult but best experiences I have ever had. I will be back as I have hopes of living here soon. For now I am just trying not to have a heart attack because I leave tonight. This is my first big travel and I will be alone for a few days. I’m trying to stay calm and go with the flow. 

Yesterday, my family had a fiesta for me and it was fabulous. I ate so much food it was dangerous haha seriously. Let me just say here in Mexico I eat a lot…and we had cake which was fabulous as always. We danced and ate a lot plus took many photos. 

On Thursday, we went to a museum. And ate ice cream which was okay. It was American so it tastes differently here. Other than that I haven’t done much. I play a lot of basketball with my cousin..just a few updates so talk later or as soon as possible!
