Doesn’t make sense does it? On a normal work day, I dread having to get out of bed, but when I travel I can’t help but get up early! Surely I should be chilling out and having a lay in?! I will even research sunset and sunrise times in the destination so I can make optimum use of the daylight hours! There are several reasons why this is part of my travel routine and why it should be in everyone else’s too!
Sometimes when it comes to travel, I feel that the bigger events such as, the people we’ve met, the places we’ve visited and the experiences we’ve had, often over shadow the smaller, simpler pleasures of travelling. Don’t get me wrong, the major aspects are the things that have helped shape me as a person, but it’s those smaller things that make me smile, are the things that make me content with the life I live. Every day for 2 years, I wrote down a positive thing that happened that day, sometimes if I had had a bad day at work, I’d struggle but just something like the sun being out or a song coming on the radio would have made me smile, it helped me focus on the smaller pleasures.
