Courage to Travel around the world
Courage to travel is something I got with just doing it. I just went and did it because I badly wanted to do it. I love a challenge and traveling as Solo Female Traveler around the world was a rewarding challenge that increased my courage. You can be brave as well! You just have to find your courage to travel and then you will be out there exploring as well.
Courage to Travel
Where you are now, I have been there. I was there for two years ago. It’s a challenge to actually take the big leap and go traveling. It’s scary, especially if it is the first time. To actually take the first step is the biggest challenge! When you are out there seeing that you are okay it will be easier to believe that you are good and easier to take the next step.
The truth is that everybody can travel. If I can go traveling, then you can travel. All we need is some courage to travel and the empowerment to take the first step out in the beautiful world.
How to find the Courage to Travel?
Courage is to do these crazy things that frightens you. If one of them is traveling. We need to reduce the level of frightens and higher the level of excitement. When traveling there are so many thing that frightens people – Will I be safe, will I have enough money, will I be lonely, Will I be completely disconnected from home?
I have asked these question many times when I started to travel. I will assure you these are the basic question.
Now I’m more like: Will it be a crazy adventure, will I have enough money to do all this activities. I really want to swim with whale sharks! will I have enough time to relax?
What is your biggest frighten for traveling?
You need to answer these basic questions to reduce the frightens. The courage to travel you will find in some of these question, when you answered them. The answered are spread out in the world throughout different travel bloggers that have already done some answering on how to reduce frightens for traveling.
Her are some answers on the biggest frighten for traveling
You will find out, that most of the places you will be safe. You will find great information about how to stay safe while traveling and how to avoid unsafe places.
Will you have enough money? It depends if you are a good saver, planer and have some extra money for unexpected cost. Money is the biggest problem for people when deciding to travel. I understand that because without its difficult to travel.
You can change it, If you really want to travel you can change the money problem. You can make it work.
The best advice for that is just stop buying thing you don’t need! Do you really need 15 dresses and 10 shoes? Seriously, you will be shocked on how much money you can save if you just stop shopping, give it a go.
After your first travel, you will be amazed that you manage to survive with only two dresses, two skirts and one shorts and with a backpack only weighing 10 kg. If you have an apartment, rent it out with AirBnb and save money while traveling or get money to spend on your accommodation some were exotic.
With signing up at AirBnb, You get 25 US dollars to spend on accommodation. That can be 2 nights with accommodation in Thailand or 1 night in Mexico or Galapagos. The possibility is endless. Go Travel. AirBnb is a great way to rent unique and local accommodations on any budget. I love using it!
Money will come and go, the memories will always stay
Will I be lonely?
I have traveled for the last two years solo. I haven’t been very lonely. The times I have been lonely, I actually needed a break from being social all the time. If you get lonely and a bit homesick put on your favorite show, I somehow always end up with FRIENDS on Netflix. Or do some Face-time with your best friends and they will make you smile and feel better. Almost every corner has WiFi these days.
Traveling is a very social thing
If you decided to travel alone, there are so many people who would like to talk with you. It’s not so scary to talk to one person than interrupting a group with 7 girls gone crazy. I do believe that the majority of people in the world want’s good thing for each other. I believe in faith and the human kind. When you do there will be awesome people maybe even life changing.
Will everything change at home and will you be disconnected from home?
When returning home from travel you will realize that not much changed. The world at home continued as normal. You learned tremendous from your traveling, the once that changed the most is you! The people who stays at home and don’t travel will sometimes not understand you. That’s okay. We are different persons.
Then you are officially lost in traveling, good luck with curing that
I have talked with people, in their 60s they have still not cured it. You are warned, if you start travel, be aware it can be tough to stop when you have started on crazy adventures.
When finding the courage to travel, start finding the answers on the question that stop you for going traveling. I promise you, I have been very frighten! Sometimes thinking why in the world am I doing this!! Then when I was standing with an amazing view over Machu Picchu, I knew way. I want to see it with my own eyes and I want to feel the experience on my body.
My best advice for finding courage to travel is to get inspired by other people who have already done it. Getting some answers for the questions that frightens and then take the leap.
