Among the most delightful pleasures in life, traveling fights the battle for the first position on the list. From the moment we arrive at the airport it’s hard to think of any other experience that is capable of bringing so much excitement to ourselves as is it to travel.
Contemplating the Statue of Liberty for the first time, watching the Eiffel Tower shine in a cold night of December or admiring the Angkor Wat temples in Cambodia, are among the most amazing moments that you can add to your memories. Tasting the food from a place on the other side of the world, or dancing to the rhythm of the music that we had never heard of allows us to realize that the world can be a way more beautiful place, but only if we are willing to step out of our comfort zone into an adventure.
Unfortunately, every coin has another face and traveling it’s not the exception. In spite of being such a striking and colorful idea, it requires a precise planning to align our desires with our budget and time requirements. From the moment we choose to make our bags, crucial decisions need to be made: when do I leave? In which airline do I go? What season? And the most important question: where do I want to go? Choosing the right destiny is, without a doubt, the core and center of our trip.
If we want to live an amazing experience, we need an amazing destination
The main challenge doesn’t lie then in the search for a great destiny, but in choosing one among the endless possibilities that the world offers. And like selecting a movie from Netflix, this can be a colossal task. To decide between the view of New York City from the roof of the Empire State and the sound of the falling water in the Niagara Falls put things in perspective. At the end of the day, there is only one thing that matters: who we are.
Our final destination has to excite us. If you are an adventurous person, contemplating the roof repair of the Sistine Chapel maybe it’s not your thing, although for an art history teacher it can be a life-changing experience. Seeing the world isn’t just a matter of having a good time, but it’s more about putting in perspective our place here and making our lives an unforgettable journey.
