Travel, which was once either a necessity or an adventure, has become very largely a commodity, and from all sides we are persuaded into thinking that it is a social requirement, too.

The daily lives of most people are definely structured and all too predictable. That’s not particularly a bad thing but it shouldn’t be the same way for their vacations and holidays, yet it almost always is.

Ironically the average vacation is not much different than a 9-to-5 job. You have to be at a certain place at a certain time then repeat and repeat…

Strict travel itinerary = work schedule.

Too much planning and committing ruins the spirit of travel and adventure. Spontaneity, freedom and intrigue is what’s missing in most people’s vacations.

Take a journey that’s all that. Open-ended, adaptable and unpredictable – even if time is limited.

Pick a location and a general list of places you MAY want to visit. Forget the factor of time and mere number of attractions. Chill and go with the flow.

Ditch the map or make your own. Go off the grid and travel off the beaten path. Venture away from civilization or mingle with and like the locals.

Don’t go on a vacation to get away from normal life, go on a journey to make a more interesting one.

Go on Journeys, Not Vacations.
