Everyone enjoys a good vacation off to a picturesque destination, the glistening beams of the sun providing conducive conditions for a perfect getaway. But how many of us enjoy the parts wherein we have to pack up our bags and the other necessities that are part and parcel of travel.
In my personal view, the concept of packing is a tad monotonous to me as it involves trying to foresee situations, something that diminishes the thrill of the journey. If you haven’t read my post about hacks to make traveling a lot more easier, do visit the post via the link alongside: 5 Unique Life Hacks That Will Benefit Your Lifestyle! Somehow, in the excitement of the travel, I usually procrastinate the packing until it is too late, at which point I eventually end up missing out on the ‘important’ stuff which I can do without.
However, recently, I have tried to realize a lifestyle which renounces the materialism and one which is befitting of the adage, ‘Travel Light’. Travel for me is a spiritual experience, one upon which should embark with a refreshed state of mind our luggage being the infinite memories that we make and the irreplaceable moments that we forge to serve us a lifetime, in our times of loneliness and solitude.
Developing such an outlook on life, one which places materialistic items and commodities that we consider so ‘important’ on a lower stead and instead elevating our experience of our travels rather than letting these things affect our mood and overall mindsets. Renouncing our pre-existing notions and methodologies of our travels which in the present scenario are being governed by external factors, would make us more content in our lives and also will help us develop as individuals.
I’ll bid your adieu with a thought, one that will further reinforce the fact that how important the experience of your travels are!
“Why do you go away? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you came from with new eyes and extra colors. And the people there see you differently, too. Coming back to where you started is not the same as never leaving.”
