How nice it would be, to be able to spend our days doing nothing but travelling from destination to destination and all-around seeing what the world has to offer. Alas, if you want to have that kind of life, then you’ll need to come up with a way to add tens of millions of dollars to your bank account. And that’s just unlikely to happen. Still, while it may not be possible to travel forever and ever, there are still plenty of ways to increase the amount of time you spend exploring the world. In this post, we’ll run through five tried and tested methods for travelling more.
Most people can’t travel as much as they’d like to because, well, they have to be at the office five days a week. But what if your office could be anywhere, including, say, in an exotic resort overlooking a beautiful beach? Since the pandemic, there’s been a marked increase in the number of jobs that are entirely remote. If you can snag one of those jobs, or convince your boss to let you work online, then you’ll have the freedom to travel anywhere that has an internet connection — which is essentially everywhere on the planet these days.
Invest in a Property
Some people want to travel to see new places; others want to travel to take a break from the everyday grind. If that’s you, then why not consider investing in a property in a resort town? You’ll find that you spend much more time away from home when you have a cosy, beautiful property to visit whenever you want. There are plenty of townhomes and condos available in vacation spots, so see what’s out there and consider making the investment. This is the ideal option for people who love travelling with their friends and family.
You’ll go travelling less frequently if you’re one of those people that plans every detail. It takes a lot of time and effort to put together a robust travel itinerary. But there’s another way to do things, too. You can also take a trip with minimal planning. There are some trips where it’s very much recommended to plan things out carefully, but for others, you can just book a hotel and see what happens.
Use All Your Time
If you can’t work remotely, then keep in mind that you may still have more time than you think to travel. Could you take a trip on those long weekends, for example, or over the Christmas holidays? It’s all about making the most of your time!
Make it a Priority
Finally, if you want to travel more, then you’ll need to make it a priority. A great trip rarely just falls in your lap; you need to will it into existence. You can value homeownership, starting a family, your career, or travel. Ultimately, our lives reflect what we value. If you put travel at the top, then it’ll be inevitable that you see a large chunk of the planet.
