How To Travel Without Actually Going Anywhere

Published

on

travel

When we travel, it’s not the travelling we seek; it’s the adventure.

But for so many reasons work, family, pets, fear, money, to name a few it isn’t always possible to hit the road or the air and take a trip. So is it possible to recreate some of the good feelings travel can bring without actually travelling? It’s about looking for unfamiliar things in familiar spaces and doing things that we do when we travel.

The Ingredients Of A Happy Travel Experience

We use travel as the antithesis to home. We give ourselves permission to have those different ways of thinking or being. When we are travelling, we’re often walking around, we’re with friends and family, and our minds aren’t preoccupied with work or errands; often, we don’t have to think about cooking dinner or keeping the house clean. But when we can’t be physically away, we might still be able to re-create some of the benefits of travel by changing our mindset. Yes, It’s possible.

Make Time To Explore

We all put away any travel plans aside owing to a hectic schedule. But the reality is we all have a little time to spare for ourselves. Yes, you do have the time. Instead of binge-watching your favourite new TV show or running errands, set aside the next Saturday afternoon to go to an area of town you don’t know that well. It’s hard to muster up the courage, but you’ll be so glad you did. Set aside a few hours on your calendar now and you’ll be glad you did.  schedule some interruption-free time for play, leisure and discovery.

Ditch The Routine

Mix it up from your daily routine. Ride a bike, take the train, or walk. You’ll inevitably see something you never saw before. You could also plan a staycation where each family member plans a day of activities. Even better swap houses with a friend so that you’re both in a different environment and can, therefore, not be constantly reminded of everything on your to-do list that weekend. Most importantly shut off the TV and the cellular devices. You could look through old pictures and talk about past adventures you’ve had.

Talk To People

Talking is the key to explore. Ask your server about the history of the restaurant. Engage the person standing next to you at the crosswalk. When we travel in new places, we tend to open up, because we have to, and because we’re inspired to. It’s harder at home when we’re bustling from home to school to work to activities to home, but you can still achieve the same effect with a little effort. Get started and you’ll be filled with some great stories from people around you.
