Why do I love to travel?

Believe it or not, but not everyone wants to travel.  This statement left me flabbergasted as well.  To be honest, I can’t think of a single reason why NOT to travel!  But to answer the question however, here is just a few reasons why I love travelling.

Making memories

Remember that time when we were in the middle of the ocean, on a small long tail boat and it was pouring? The boat started leaking, and the “captain” had a small bucket with which he scooped the water out of the boat.  We just looked at each other and started laughing hysterically. Yup, that was seven years ago already!

Meeting interesting people

To this day I still have contact with people that I met on my first European coach trip.  The one girl in particular lives in San Francisco, worked in the Peace Corps in Swaziland and we met in Europe. Each year I would send her some rooibos tea and sometimes we just randomly catch up on whatsapp.

Gaining perspective

The more you see, the more you realise that you haven’t seen anything yet! There are so much more to see, taste, hear and experience.  Once a year, go someplace you have never been before.


You only live once! Make it count.  Work hard and play hard.  See the world.


You will feel refreshed and rejuvenated.  Your feet might be tired from all the exploring. You might have a bit of jet lag.  Yet, you will feel refreshed with a new perspective on life.  Ready for your next adventure.
