Youthfulness is a gift and it is one that you should take advantage of. Pretty soon your body will ache, your hair will turn gray and you will have something absolutely horrible known as responsibilities leaving all your goals too far away to ever accomplish. Before you kiss your goals goodbye and get bogged down with the horrible reality of getting old make sure you do these amazing things while you travel to ensure you can sit back and reflect on your life when you get old and make everyone else in the nursing home jealous.
When you’re married or you have kids, odds are you won’t have the opportunity to travel all by yourself or knock a lot of your goals off your list. So travel alone while you can and see what the world has to offer you. You will make new friends and experience a wild adventure all your own. Write your own story and do only what you want to do. It’s always great to have companionship when you travel, but having complete and total freedom is great too. You’ll be surprised at the companionship you do find when traveling alone and you will make a memory that you will cherish forever.
Climb A Mountain
There is no sense of accomplishment quite like climbing a mountain. No, you don’t have to get to the top of Everest and risk freezing to death, there are plenty of mountains with varying degrees of difficulties of paths to the top. But once you reach the top of the mountain you will truly feel like the king of the world. You will feel like a superhero and your friends will bow down to you because you’re the great and powerful mountain climber.
Ride A Classic Train
There are trains all over the world, but most people don’t think about traveling on them because cars and planes are so much more practical when it comes to getting somewhere. But there is something majestically unique about a train voyage that is something that you will remember forever. It doesn’t really matter where the train goes just sitting and staring out the window or walking through the cars is a romantic journey that is truly one of a kind.
Peruse A Market
There’s something to be said for the colorful chaos that is an international marketplace. You weave through tight alleys and see the colorful merchandise that different cultures have to offer. You don’t even have to buy anything to enjoy yourself, just browsing stand after stand is enough to leave you satisfied. However, if you do feel like shopping these are usually great places to get unique gifts for cheap and delicious local food. Markets are great for many different reasons but the most important one is the magical experience they will leave in your heart.
Learn A Language
Being able to communicate with someone who doesn’t speak your native language is quite a thrill. You feel so smart and so worldly when you are able to communicate in a different country. Plus, you never know when your knowledge of a language will help pay off in different parts of your life. No one ever regrets learning a new language, so why not start today.
