This is TRAVELING. You must know these 6 truths about traveling!

Travel pictures usually show so much excitement – it seems like traveling is a fairy tale – sea, sun, smiles and cocktails. But traveling is so much more than an ordinary rest in a foreign land.

1. Traveling is PLANNING

More precisely, effective traveling is planning. We visited maximum places with minimal means, only thanks to the planning. No doubt that spontaneous journey around the World could be exciting, but planning is, however, closely related to safety, which, along with health, is the most important condition for a successful trip. Each step begins with some kind of aim to reach, a way to achieve it, and all the other details. In our tour around the World, planning took the most important place. We gathered information on security in each country, potential natural disasters, places to visit. It is much more interesting to have at least little background of knowledge – when you actually know why everything is built and why it looks like this. Of course, it’s not possible to prepare for everything as it is not always possible to follow the plan. And this is precisely why the plan is made – in order to be able to step away from it and still being prepared.

2. Traveling is MOVING

How is it possible to travel so many countries and so many places (see About Us section) in just seventeen months? It’s possible by being in constant movement in this changing environment. Traveling doesn’t mean long relaxation in a restaurant or bar watching football match. Traveling isn’t laying on the beach. It is a continuous exploration of new places, contact with people, animals and nature. Traveling is mastering of everything new that comes on the way. Traveling is a real adventure!

3. Traveling is OPENING UP

This is definitely an opening up to all the new. It is a complete and rapid adaptation. You should not compare, nor condemn the place where you are or people you meet about the life they are living. Every corner of the World has its own charm. And the more open you are, the more you will be able to catch that World’s breeze. Stereotyping and denial completely block the new knowledge. Open up the mind and heart to the unusual environment! And then you will be able to see the real World, then you will understand what is “guts” or that inner feeling that brings the traveler forward and always protects.

Open up to the World and realize that every way of life is beautiful if the right choices are made. If one door is closed, don’t break in them – a better surprise is waiting just behind the corner. Everything in this World has its own reason, its own purpose. Open up even to those small accidents that can happen quite often when traveling, because there is definitely a reason for them. Perhaps those are just life’s directions to the right path.

4. Traveling is LEARNING

When traveling, the desire to know more and more is definitely increasing. Traveling is a continuous learning process. Learning from the places you visit, learning from the locals who share their story. Learning from new tastes, smells and sounds. It is learning from the experiences, misfortunes, and moments of admiration. And traveling is not just seeing, not just checking out the countries just to say “I’ve been there”. It is feeling. Each place has its own energy. And the nature is so alive all around! So beautiful is the silence at the highest peak of the volcano and such a splendid chaos can be felt in the big cities! And the best is that you can learn from all of that!

5. Traveling is LEAVING YOUR FOOTSTEPS

You should always remember that behind everyone traces remain. And everyone must strive to leave only positive. Every nation’s culture must be respected by adapting to it if you are a guest, and never judging. Nature needs to be nurtured, not destroyed by thinking “one small action won’t change anything”. Remember that it can be both the best friend and the worst enemy.

Everything in the World is connected, and every action has consequences. You never know how much impact you leave on the random passerby. Maybe your smile gives a day of joy to a stranger. Perhaps one “thank you” changes opinions. Perhaps the least important “yes” or “no” is able to change the perception of things. Isn’t it surprising?

6. Traveling is SHARING

Sharing with everything that has been experienced and understood. It would be foolish to gain so much knowledge of the World and keep it secret. Traveling is not just learning, but also teaching. It is not just receiving but also giving. Even by spending money on travel, you can only become richer. And whom do we save the money, if not for those beautiful moments, experiences and knowledge? And it’s all given by traveling. It provides an experience that nobody can ever take you away. Let’s not collect photos that remain unreviewed and let’s not collect souvenirs that are covered by dust in the shelf! Let’s save the moments, enrich our world, by being in harmony with nature and all the living!
