Excuses that Stop You from Travelling 0 179

We’ve almost certainly heard every ill-conceived excuse under the sun as to why you can’t go travelling. These excuses crop up because we humans have this disagreeable ability to justify why we can’t do something to such an extent that we can even convince ourselves of almost anything. We often fill our heads with hypothetical scenarios of doubts and questions. It’s high time we stop saying “what if” and start saying “yes”!  

So we’re going to take a look at some of the most common travel excuses people have come up with. But after reading our well thought out solutions, trust us, you won’t have any excuses left. Looks like it’s time to pack your bags and go off on an adventure!

“I can’t afford it!”

This is probably the most common justification not to travel. So you can’t afford to stay in a fancy hotel? Don’t worry, the majority of us can’t either. But you know what? That’s not the only way to travel and enjoy. You don’t have to be rolling in money to travel. It’s about getting your priorities straight. If you can resist relentlessly adding to your ever-growing wardrobe or those post-night fancy meals, you can afford to save up that money to help fund the holiday of your dreams. There’s no denying that it’s tough sacrificing on life’s luxuries but sacrificing those little things can help you save up a considerable amount every month. There’s nothing that is impossible if you put your mind to it.

You don’t have to travel cheaply; just be street smart like considering staying in guesthouses instead of expensive hotels, travel to countries like Sri Lanka instead of Europe. You get the picture?

“I don’t have the time”

Now come on, if you have a break between semesters, a few days off from work, then that’s more than enough time for travelling. The truth is, no one ever really has time. If you really want to do it, then you can make the time. It’s all about planning ahead and working out the details and travel doesn’t necessarily have to be time-consuming. A local weekend getaway can be just as satisfying as a fortnight-long vacation abroad.

But if you really don’t have the time, then it’s up to you to master the art of rapid travel where you can turn a couple of free days you have into incredible adventures.

“I’ve never travelled before”

The notion of exploring the big, wide world on your own is a bit intimidating and scary but also know it’s going to be worthwhile. With no one else’s influence, you have the freedom to be you – do whatever you want at your own pace and time. And let’s face it, who’s a more perfect travel buddy for you than yourself?

Travelling solo doesn’t mean you that you’re all alone. Wherever you go, you’ll meet up with like-minded wanderers, some of whom will become your friends for life.

“I’ll do it next year”

Didn’t you say that last year too? Actually, there are a handful of legitimate reasons to delay travelling but simply not being ready is not one of them. If you have the urge to go on a trip, the time to act is now, not next month, not next year, but now! There are always going to be excuses not to do something but it’s also about time you make an excuse to actually do something you love.

“I’ve never travelled before”

Well then, now is your chance! To make the most of your life you have to step out of your comfort zone and try new things once in awhile. We understand it can be overwhelming to have to decide on which destination is going to suit you and all the other nitty-gritty of travel, but there are tonnes of travel blogs, websites and forums you can look through before committing. The Yoho Bed Blog is a prime example of that (wink wink), especially if you’re considering a holiday in Sri Lanka. And with travelling. experiencing and seeing new things, there’s no way you’ll regret it.

Life’s too short for maybes and excuses. It’s time to get out there and see the world!
