60 Reasons why you should stop thinking about it and just go travelling

The reasons why people travel vary from person to person. But no matter what age, what destination or what adventure they wish to go on, for the majority of people it’s just a pipe dream brushed aside by the ‘real world’ and society pressures to be successful. Why do people push the idea of travelling aside? It’s because they are scared of the unknown, the potential problems, the what ifs, money, expectation or maybe they are just scared to open their eyes to the world. Trust me once you do it there’s no turning back. Which is exactly the reason you shouldn’t push back the idea!
