5 Things That Inspire Me to Travel

Everyone loves the idea of travelling, but few find time for it.

When I was younger, I never fitted in since everyone around me loved talking about “other”people.

I have always believed that, we would more likely remember the day we had coffee at a park than remember what that “other”chick was wearing.

Here’s a list of things that have inspired me to live the way I wish :

Movies

The Secret life of Walter Mitty has inspired me. One of my favourite scenes was this, * wipes invisible tear*

Walter travels to the Himalayas of Afghanistan to meet, Sean O’Connell, companies freelance photographer, and recover the cover photo.Sean’s only job in Afghanistan is to take a picture of a snow leopard and here’s the twist, he doesn’t.

*snow leopard walks by*

*both of them admiring it*

Walter Mitty: When are you going to take it?

Sean O’Connell: Sometimes I don’t. If I like a moment, for me, personally, I don’t like to have the distraction of the camera. I just want to stay in it. ( sobs quietly)

Walter Mitty: Stay in it?

Sean O’Connell: Yeah. Right there. Right here because beautiful things don’t ask for attention.

 Youtube

Youtuber’s Fun for Louis excites me. The little things he says inspires me.

For instance, When he was a kid he used to sit in his room and with a couple of friends and day dream of travelling. Then later decided to redecorate his room to represent the Amazon rainforest and he actually won a BBC prize.

Not only that, he bought a freaking boom bus from eBay.But life’s not always nice and the engine promptly fails. Although, he didn’t give up, he simply bought another one and then took a month long road trip in the UK.

Books 

“Bucket list of a traveloholic” by Sarika Pandit

She got so fed up of studying Spanish in India and she went to Spain to learn it.

“Across India in 80 trains” by Monisha Rajesh

Every statement in the book is a quote.

“To understand India you have to see it, hear it, breathe it and feel it. Living through the good, the bad and the ugly is the only way to know where you fit in and where India fits into you.” 

Monisha Rajesh

If you took a pencil to underline your favourite line, you’ll probably end up marking the entire book. She puts down her thoughts so eloquently and perfectly manages to describe what she wants to say.

The land of the flying llama’s by Gaurav Punj.

The way he manages to explains it to you is impressive and makes you imagine these visuals.

I feel like if this were to ever be a movie Morgan Freeman would be the narrator.
