Ever thought about setting off on an adventure of a lifetime? A lot of people these days seem to pack their bag and take off, just like that! It really mustn’t be that bad, right? If you are thinking of following these crazy people anytime soon, I am here to tell you it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Maybe you should just stay home, where you know it’s a lot safer and you are in the comforts of your own home.
It’s Not Safe
You watch the news right? Its a dangerous world out there. Muggings, kidnappings, robberies, to name a few. You don’t want to be caught up in all that. Why put your life at risk? Especially when you know you could be at home, cozy and safe under your duvet, all snug in your bed.
There’s No Routine
Forget about routine when you travel. There is absolutely no such thing! You can’t get up and turn your coffee maker on, have your muesli, read the paper, or watch The Morning Show. And that 5pm gym sesh? No way! Why would you ever want to change your daily routine? You have such a good thing going on and you know how your day is going to go, why change it up?
Ugh dirty!? Places out there are dirty, dusty, smelly and wtf!? Are they selling food on the side of the road!? If you do still want to pack that bag after I warned you that it’s dangerous and there is no routine, make sure you stock up on hand sanitiser and wet wipes.
You Need To Win The Lottery
Stop saving your money right now, you’re wasting your time. You defiantly need to win the lottery to travel. Because, there’s no such thing as budget travel. Every country you go to will be way out of your price range.
The Scenery Is Nothing Special
You think you are going to go and marvel over a spectacular view? It’s really not that amazing. After you have hiked that mountain, it really wasn’t worth the huffing and puffing for the view. Plus, it could be windy and cold or it can be stinking hot and you’re sweating like there’s no tomorrow. You don’t want to ruin that new shirt or mess up your hair.
The Food Is Different
Ive been to countries where they eat spiders, snakes and all sorts of insects! The sight of that isn’t pretty. And the spices they use are just terrible! If you do travel abroad, you can usually find a McDonalds somewhere, at least you know what you are getting. Phew!
It’s Not Fun
You’ll be bored out of your brain if you travel! There’s nothing to do or see. There’s no entertainment in other countries. Its not the adventure everyone raves about. You might have more fun at home watching Netflix.
You Won’t Make Any Friends
Travel is totally lonely, especially when you are travelling solo. Nobody is friendly, or makes an effort to talk to you. Everyone keeps to themselves and goes about their own business. So, don’t expect to make any lifelong friends.
It Might Change You
Now why would you want to change!? Nobody likes change. You might gain confidence, change how you view the world and appreciate where you come from a little more. There’s no way for you to grow any further as a person, you’re perfect just the way you are!
