We are all so set in our ways and preoccupied by out immediate surroundings that we forget about the rest of the world. Apart from a holiday or two a year many of us stay put in the same place for the majority of our lives. The world is for exploring, for new experiences and meeting new people. Broaden your horizons in 2013 and try something a little different this year.
Travel The World
On average most of us have only visited five countries in our life time outside of our own, with 196 countries in the world that’s not very many! Most of us fear if we take so much time out when we return what we knew and loved would have completely changed, where as in most cases everything will be almost exactly the same as when you left. Take 2013 to travel the world, it will be a trip you will remember for a life time.
What many of us don’t realise is that you don’t have to have buckets of money to take long trips away. Consider house swapping as a cost efficient alternative. House swapping means you find somewhere- anywhere in the world, where you would like to stay, find someone who wants to stay where you live and swap! People swap homes for weekends, weeks or years. If you want to experience living abroad but can’t afford an expensive hotel or villa house swap instead.
One of the best experiences I ever had was through house swapping; I even hired a bath removal company and shipped all my belongings abroad for a year.
Set Life Up Else Where
Often many of us ‘just end up’ where we are, and sometimes there’s no real reason why we can’t move somewhere else. We get so comfortable where we are that we wouldn’t consider moving, even if we’re not particularly attached to where we are, it’s just easier to stay put. Most of us fear changing our lives to dramatically and that the change may be counterproductive. You can always go back to your old life, but if you don’t try you will never move forward and make changes for yourself for the better.
While you still have the chance consider moving to somewhere you’ve always wanted to go, or somewhere you’ve always been curious about. You only live once after all. Pack up your stuff, hire a removal company and go on an adventure!
