CLOSE YOUR EYES AND THINK ABOUT YOUR MASTER PLAN…
WHAT KINDS OF THINGS DO YOU SEE YOURSELF DOING?
WHERE HAVE YOU TRAVELED?
DO YOU HAVE A LIST OF THINGS YOU MUST DO BEFORE YOU HIT A CERTAIN AGE?
OR AN UNSHAKABLE WANT TO SEE NEW THINGS?
Personally, traveling is one of the most amazing things I have done in my life. I have seen so many places, and met some friends that I will have for a lifetime simply because I traveled. There is a sense of freedom and adventure to traveling that isn’t fulfilled any other way. It was this realization that got me thinking about how I can do it more often.
It is imperative to have a job if you want to travel, point blank. There is no way you are getting anywhere without the means to do so. Once you have a job DOWNLOAD “Hopper – Airfare Predictions” it is an app that allows you to choose all of the places you ever wanted to go. It then surfs the web for you in the meantime, and sends alerts to your phone whenever there is a drastic decrease in the price of the flight. This way, you are always getting the cheapest ticket & always on top of the best deals.
My next piece of advice is to budget your checks. Put away $25 – $50 dollars every check. You will be amazed at how fast your trip savings will grow. The amount is doable, and it is an amount that will allow for a good amount saved. From there I suggest hitting up your friends and seeing what they have planned for the future. The best way to travel is with friends, I will say that forever and always. Gather a group of your closest buds and rent a house somewhere, go for a road-trip, or split an insanely expensive hotel for a weekend. These instances will be memories that you hold close for life. Don’t waste your life daydreaming about your potential travels. Make it happen.
