What’s not to love about travelling? Travelling is wonderful in each and every way, travel is something that dreams are made of, and travel is the best when a dream becomes a reality 🙂
My favourite things about travel are:
That fluttery feeling that comes from buying a plane ticket, booking accommodation, browsing through blog posts or travel guides for inspiration, is something so unique. Travel begins even before it begins with feelings of excitement by counting down days on a calendar, by daydreaming while at work and all that comes with the excitement of planning a trip.
There is something so amazing about stepping off a plane or train (or boat or car) and being somewhere totally new. Taking in the change of temperature, the smells, the sights, the noises. It feels like magic and cements the first impressions of a place.
My favourite thing to do when arriving somewhere for the first time is to wander around and just take it all on. To absorb the sights and colours, to see the road signs and to wallow in the feeling of being somewhere exciting. This feeling is especially heightened when you have been dreaming of that place for such a long time, it feels like the dream has become an amazing reality!
One thing I tend to notice is colours which may be on the market stalls, the flowers, flags or street art. Colour is striking and something we can ignore when we see it everyday. However, in a new place it is there to all be taken in and it can drawn us in and captivate us!
Sometimes the landscape can mean winding streets or built up cities, and sometimes it can mean towering mountains or lush green. Whatever it may be, it’s something that I love about travel. I love to observe the differences in landscapes especially those that are so different from home. Nothing beats those wow moments when you see a landscape unlike anything you’ve ever seen before!
Exploring through my tastebuds is a must! Getting to taste authentic food in it’s country of origin is the best as well as taking in the atmosphere of eating out whether that is in a bustling cafe, a street food market or a quiet restaurant off the beaten-track.
Culture is made up of so much; customs, history, food, language… the list goes on. Getting to take a peek into another culture is something that is made truly possible through travel. Interacting with people is the number one thing that I believe teaches you the most about a culture.
The amazing thing about travelling is that it doesn’t end once you get back home. Collecting memories is one of the best things about travelling, I like to re-live these through my photos and the stories I get to tell.
Travel is the most amazing thing. Travel is my favourite thing 🙂 What are the things you love most about travel?
