Travel

Travel when you are young.

 

You’re willing to take risks,

 

Your body is strong.

 

You travel on a budget.

 

You have to take the longer more physically gruelling route -

 

Do it.

 

Because you can.

 

Because you get to see so much more than just the “touristy places”,

 

Because you can go at your own pace and take it all in –

 

Capture moments that would otherwise be lost.

 

Do it -

 

Because you can bounce back from illness

 

Because the aches and pains are the muscles you never use on a regular basis. Not old injuries coming back to haunt you.

 

Travel when you’re young because it makes you wiser, more interesting, more knowledgeable and open minded.

 

Travel when you are old.

 

You know when a risk is worth taking

 

Your mind is still strong and hungry for new experiences and cultures

 

You no longer travel on a budget

 

You can take the more leisurely, less physically gruelling route

 

Do it.

 

Because you can.

 

You get to reminisce about how when you were younger you took the more gruelling route.

 

Recall the moments that you captured in your youth

 

The moments that you bounced back from illness

 

Recall the times when the aches and pains were just the muscles you never used on a regular basis- Not old injuries coming back to haunt you.

 

Travel when you are old because it makes you realize how much you’ve grown, it makes you smile at how young and naive you were when you first started out – You know so many more people, so much more about different cultures.

 

 

Just Travel.
