Why It’s Never The Perfect Time To Travel

With summer soon approaching, many people can’t wait to cash in their vacation time for the perfect getaway. They dream of white sand beaches, Mediterranean cruises, backpacking through Latin America – anything that includes the opportunity to see the world and experience a taste of life and culture. Yet, so many of these dreams go unfulfilled. Why is that? Why do their dreams never come to fruition?

For many, the initial sparkle wears off when reality sets in and they begin to realize the impact it may have on their everyday life.

“How will I pay my bills AND afford this trip? Who will look after things while I’m gone? There’s so much to be done here, I can’t just up and leave.”

As you list off the reasons, you start second-guessing yourself.

“Maybe this isn’t such a good idea. It’s bad timing right now. Maybe it’ll be easier next year.”

You’ll convince yourself that life is unpredictable and something will come up. Even though, sometimes this does hold true, don’t let apprehension and uncertainty hold you back.

The truth is, you’re never going to be 100% ready and it’s never going to be just the right time, but that’s the point. It means that every moment is also the right moment. If you want it, you just have to do it. So take the trip, go on the adventure, enjoy life because so many people make excuses and end up disappointed, but no one goes on a vacation and comes back filled with regret.
