“If travelling was free, you would never see me again” – Heard this quote and liked it on any or all social media platform that you came across? If you just said yes for that then keep on reading because I’m just about to give you 20 reasons to travel full time. You never know maybe by the end of this blog, you might give it another thought that you should actually travel full time before you think it is too late. And if you ask me, it is never too late.
In your normal life, you are doing a 9 to 5 job, answerable to people at work, at home, your friends; and your life just circles around them.

You can be your own boss and finally do things your way.
I’m sure you have a bucket list or ‘things to do before you die’ kind of a list. How many of it have you actually checked everything on that list?

Having bruised passports has always been your dream then it is time for you to get on the flight and start this exciting new journey of exploring the world and leaving footprints everywhere you go.
Going on a short annual vacation is not going to open the horizon of meeting new people of different countries as you will be busy exploring the country in the little time you have. But if you travel full time then you in turn spend more time and meet new people and who knows, you might end up travelling together or having a meal together and having a good conversation.

What fun is it if you decorate your home with souvenirs that are not even bought personally by you? The fun is to be there in that country or city and know why it is a souvenir and choose from a million options that you have and pick the one that’s your personal favourite.

Taking a 10 day or a weekend language class is never going to work. That’s because you would learn the basics and forget it before you happen to even try speaking the language with someone who knows it. But that’s not the case when you travel. You happen to learn the language because you stay there for a while and speak on a day to day basis and voila, there is a new language you can proudly say you know.
Ever wanted to isolate from the world and connect to nature? Just stop by a beach and listen to the sound of waves or sit by the garden and listen to the birds chirping or be mesmerized by the beauty of mountains and more? This is hard to do when on a short trip or while not a trip. The best way to connect to the eternal beauty that is the nature is when you know it is okay to stop and enjoy wherever you want to, as you have all your life to travel.
If you are scared to take the plunge and travel full time only because you think there is going to be no source of income for you to survive; then WAKE UP!! We are living in time where there are whole lot of opportunities that’s opened for freelancers. You can become a freelance travel writer or even a freelancer travel photographer where you can earn while you are travelling because all you need is a laptop and a camera. But how long will you keep working for someone else? So give yourself a little credit for the travelling you do and become a full time travel blogger where you can have a website of your own and that’s like a whole new world altogether because you will collaborate with a lot of people through your work. And if you become a damn good blogger then voila! Sponsored trips (part of the trip or the entire trip), get paid for reviews and much more.
If you are still unsure about travelling full time, you can always pursue your passion to travel full time. You might be either passionate about photography, painting, dancing, sports or any form of art and you can make that as your gateway to live your dream to travel along with your passion.
Let’s forward life to the future and imagine you are seventy, sitting back on a rocky chair and having your morning tea and a thought flashes ‘Wish I had the courage to travel more when I had the chance to’ or ‘Wish I could go back in time and change that one thing where I dint go ahead with travelling full time over my lame reasons’.
