Last August was the first time I’ve traveled internationally. We went to 3 countries for almost a month and I miss the feeling of going to a new place that I decided to make a list of the things I love about traveling.
THE EXCITEMENT// I’ve always loved the idea of going to new places since forever and when I finally had the chance to go to another country, I was in cloud nine even just by thinking about it. The day I was finally at the airport, I couldn’t even explain how excited I am.
SPENDING TIME WITH THE RIGHT PEOPLE// Traveling alone sounds like an adventure but for me, it’s ten times funner (cos funner is a word) when I’m with the people I love. I’ve traveled with my cousins and mom abroad and it was awesome.
THE PLACE// When you finally land in a new place or country, the feeling is so surreal especially if you’ve wanted to go to that place for a long time where you only admire it in photos and movies before. You get that feeling of, “Wow! I can’t believe I’m actually here right now!”.
THE EXPERIENCE// I feel like this is the real essence of traveling. You get to experience a lot of new things that you’ve never done before. You get to taste the country’s signature dishes, get to know the locals, get lost in a city, shop until you drop, make new friends from different countries, the list never ends.
FINDING BEAUTY// You learn how to appreciate everything you see along the way. Even if it’s just a simple building, you feel like it’s the most magnificent thing you’ve ever seen. Or when you see a beggar on the street, it makes you feel how lucky you really are, and when you go back to your own country, you get to see it in a different but in a good way. It feels great coming home.
