Top Reasons to Get Out and Travel the World

A lot of people choose to leave their home and travel the world. You may be wondering why they do this because at the end of the day, you’re probably lucky if you are able to travel to one country once a year. The truth is that traveling can be addictive and it can also be a very personal experience. If you want to take that next step or if you want to try and take things to that next level then you can find some reasons to get motivated below.

Challenge Yourself

You may feel as though you are stuck in a rut or you may even feel as though you are dying to have something different happen in your life. Travel is a fantastic way for you to bring about positive change and it also gives you the chance to try and push yourself to the limit as well. You will be going far beyond your comfort zone and you will also discover how resourceful you can be as well. This tends to happen when you are exposed to new experiences, new people and new places. The boost of confidence that you can get when you are able to order a meal when you don’t speak the language cannot be compared to anything else.

The Chance to Learn

A lot of people also travel because they want to learn. They want to go on to experience something that is not familiar to them and they also want to learn new skills. When you travel the world, this is far more educational than high school and it is a crash course on how people across the pond live. This can be done on a social, geographical or historical foundation, and at the end of the day, every destination is different to the next. You can easily get the most out of your learning experience and people may even go as far to try and learn the language as well. This different aspect can really broaden your horizon and it can give you the chance to go that extra mile with your traveling experience.

Getting to Know Yourself

When you are away from the stress of home, you can then take the opportunity to reflect on your life. You really do need to take the time and space to take everything in. Traveling is one of the best ways for you to learn more about yourself and it will bring around its own set of opportunities. Some of them may even surprise you and it is a great way for you to let go of stress and find out more about life in general. The experience of traveling cannot be compared to anything else and you would be surprised at how easy it is for you to really take part in all of that without breaking the bank.

By being strategical with your vacation and by booking at the right time, you can save a ton of money and still get the experience of a lifetime.

Trendy Thursday LinkUp + Graphic Tees & Denim Skirts

Happy Thursday! Denim skirts are a recent obsession of mine! I absolutely love them. But what’s not to love about them? They’re comfortable and super versatile. I wore my to our trip to the lake last weekend. And to keep it casual, I paired it with this cute amour top that is under $11 (linked below), my go to slides and my go-to bamboo bag. I have a few more ideas on how to wear this skirt, so be on the look out for more looks during the summer!

Mi más reciente obsession son las faltas fe jeans. Me parecen perfectas por que son cómodas y versátiles. Esta por ejemplo la use para nuestro viaje al lago. Como quería un look causal, use este suéter que está a menos de $11 (el enlace de los deje abajo), mis sandalias y bolso favorito. He pensado en muchos looks que puedo crear con esta falda, asi que les aconsejo que estén pendientes. 😉

Can A Vacation Make You A Better Person?

Can A Vacation Make You A Better Person?

Can a vacation make you a better person? Well, of course, that depends on how you focus on the vacation. A ‘vacation’ is simply a term used to attribute traveling in a convenient format with time limitations. However, the aspect of travel is not something that can be adequately described in a brochure, or even the best sales pitch of your travel representative. The virtues and benefits you take away from traveling are yours to experience, and sometimes, yes, they can culminate in a better you. Here’s how…

Opening Minds

Travel will broaden your mind. This is important to think about. Often we can get into a routine of going to work, coming home, working out, watching television or Netflix and sleeping. Rinse and repeat all year, until we gain a two-week vacation to lay on a beach and maybe read a novel. We’re not suggesting that your schedule is bad it’s just that your mind could be fed in such a superior way. Because travel can open your mind to new ways of thinking, new people, new events, new things to experience. There could be a whole hidden side of you that you have yet to experience, just waiting to get out. You could be the best salsa dancer in the world. You’ll never know unless you try.

Force To Communicate

When out of your comfort zone in this way, you are forced to communicate with people around you whom you might not have otherwise met. Many people find that the language barrier can be a problem, but we’d suggest it’s simply a fun challenge. To do this will help you find similarities and wonder in the people around the world you otherwise would not interface with. You’ll find humor, goodwill and openness in most people you meet. Then you’ll realize that no matter how many sensational tabloid news articles you read, that the world is much more harmonious than you might think.

Trendy Thursday LinkUP + Yellow Floral Cut Out Tie Front Romper

ROMPERS! This fashion item has been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. I mean since WAY before I decided to start blogging. But seriously, what is not to love about rompers? They’re super comfy, you can dress them up or down. I especially like the ones with pockets. But as of lately I’ve been drawn to ones like the one I have on here. I just love the tie front detail, the floral print and the price. The fact that it is yellow, makes it perfect as this color seems to be trending.

I decided to pair this little romper with my favorite wedges, new pair of sunnies, bamboo handbag that I have been obsessively using and a denim jacket. I’m linking the exact romper below and other pieces in my look. So keep scrolling. 😉
