Happy Travel Tuesday homies. How perfect is the timing of this prompt?
Last time I had to answer the question, “what’s one thing I can’t live without,” I was really lame and said my phone… Which, I guess to be fair, is probably close to true. I would miserable to be around while trying to convert to life without my iPhone, but it’s not like I would die or anything.
So, I took this time a little more seriously and came up with a more meaningful response.
October 3rd: One Thing I Can’t Live Without…
(Read the original Blogtober 2014 post here!)
I honestly can’t imagine my life without travel. Like, it’s so strange to me that there are people who just live life and never go places… How? I don’t understand it… Aren’t you bored and sad and just… meh?
I would be… Which is exactly why I live in RV. See, thats a picture of me in Utah. Look at how happy I am!
We’ve rearranged everything so that we can live a life based on traveling and experiencing as much as we possibly can right now. Right now, while we are young, rather than waiting until we’re old like most do. I’m incredibly lucky to have this opportunity at such a young age. While many have to wait until they retire to run away and give up showering, Aaron and I get to do it right now.
Making New Friends
On top of seeing places that I could only ever dream of going (Horseshoe Bend, The Grand Canyon, Moab Utah), I have also met some of the coolest people. Honestly, in the last two years, I have been able to build friendships with these crazy RV people that are deeper and stronger than some of the ones I have with people that I’ve known half of my life.
I’m just so incredibly grateful for how lucky I am. Seeing new places, meeting amazing people. building life long friendships with people that just get me… #blessed lol
Chilling the Fuck Out
Travel has also helped reduce my levels of stress and anxiety. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still kinda high strung and I definitely have moments of irrational anxiety, but I am so much more chill than I used to be. I rarely know where I’m going to be in a week, let alone a month or longer…
“What’s your five year plan?” You’ve got to be kidding me!
I have been forced to cope with life without a plan, and it’s been incredibly therapeutic. People say that traveling will change your life… I guess I never bought it until I experienced it for myself.
Do you feel the same about travel? What’s something you can’t live without?
