Stop looking for happiness in travelling

It’s great to wander around the globe and enjoy life, but to live a life full of meaning, you’ll need to put in the work because no one will find your ‘happiness’ for you.

I love travelling…

However…

Travelling is so much more than just happiness

Most of all, travelling is about growth. Your growth.

  • It’s about doing things that push you out of your comfort zone and shape you into the person you are or will become.
  • It’s about dealing with all kinds of emotions and learning how to handle them without being afraid of how you feel.
  • It’s about not being afraid to show your emotions.
  • It’s about being open to all the moments you experience on this journey — happy, sad, hilarious, crazy, a little bit dangerous.
  • It’s about the adrenaline you feel pumping through your veins that makes you feel alive, that makes you a human being.

So what is travelling really about?

It’s about conquering the biggest fear of all, the fear of regretting not taking a chance to do something different, to live your dream.
