A month or so ago I wrote a blog post titled Travel Shamers. I wanted to write about this topic again because recently I saw a post on Facebook, which I have posted to below, about people judging others about taking low budget means of transportation. I just wanted to say in response to this is who cares how someone chooses to travel. You do not need to spend over a thousand dollars for a flight then do some but do not shame someone for choosing a discounted ticket. Travel is more than just booking a ticket, one must be concerned about accommodations, food and activities. Traveling should not only be limited to those who have thousands of dollars. Rather for those who have the desire to see new cultures or another part of their country. It should not matter how we travel, rather the experience we get. As long as, you get the best possible experience, that’s all that matters. It does not matter your mode of transportation as long as you get there and experience the place the best way you can is all that matters. Don’t let travel shamers, make you think any differently.
Travel Tip: Travel any way that makes the best fiscal and
experience for you.
Sometimes people believe that the only way to travel is on a plane. I have heard people say that. However, I firmly believe that that is not true. From my previous post, I sure you can see that I never believed that. I want to try to do a cross country road trip. I was close to taking greyhound from Philadelphia to Los Angles. It was going to be a long trip, but a part of me wanted to do it just because. (I love getting those just because feelings). The only reason I didn’t take it was because I started graduates school. However, I want to encourage anyone reading this to hit the road.
Honestly riding along the high way, you can see some beautiful scenery of greenery and lakes. A bonus if you’re not driving, you get take photos of it. I have hundreds of photos of my family trips along the eastern seaboard. Plus being on the road offers you a great deal of freedom that planes do not offer. Some of that includes not having a bag restriction and you can have as many stops as you want. If someone tries to tell you that road trips can’t fill the soul, they lied.
