Traveling does that.
No matter what is going on in your life, once you decide to go away for a few days it can really recharge you completely, your mind, your soul, and your spirit.
Sometimes traveling can be just a weekend away or a complete getaway with plane rides and new places to visit and explore.
Sometimes you come back from your trips and your body is exhausted from all the walking, sightseeing, random schedule that you followed while you went away, but your mind is enriched.
You’ll live new experiences, meet new people, and completely break from the routine that has taken over your adult life.
To me traveling is like exploring a new playground as a child, you find something new, something challenging that just excites you and makes you want to keep going around and see if you find a new favorite thing to do.
Through the years I have discovered that some of my favorite travel experiences are the ones that combine a mixture of city and nature.
For example, I took a few days off and traveled to San Francisco, enjoyed good food, great desserts, and everything else a big city can offer you, then packed up my bags and went on a car ride a few hours away to some of the most breathtaking scenery I have ever seen in my life.
I camped at Yosemite National Park. It’s so beautiful I couldn’t believe my eyes. I recommend going in early Spring. You avoid most of the tourists, and can still see all of the park.
The summer can be crowded and very expensive, the winter restricts you from driving through the entire park.
I’ve also discovered I enjoyed driving around to see as many places as I can.
I recently came back from Florida and during my 6-day trip, I went from Miami’s South Pointe Park to Wyndwood, Ft. Lauderdale, all the way up to Kissimmee. I avoided peak hours so driving was an efficient way to get around and still relax and enjoy the scenery.
Travel, disconnect, recharge, and be open to new experiences and new places. It will really fill your soul!
