Lately I have been getting the travel bug again. As the weather is getting warmer I always tend to drift off thinking of warmer climates. I have been very lucky in my life and have had the fortune of travelling Europe, America, South America, the Far East and Australia and it has not broken the bank.
With enough pre-planning travelling can be a very cheap experience and offers us the chance to see new parts of the world that we would not normally get the chance to see. I know that one day I will return back to Australia and South America but right now my heart is really set on Scandinavia which might sound odd as I will be moving there in a year.
But the more I research the more I want to know. The history of Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark is as old, if not older, than most European countries yet it’s a history that is so unknown. Moving to Sweden I know that I will have the chance to explore much more in my time there so this year I’ll be travelling a lot to the other Scandinavian countries to find out more about this illustrious history.
I have not had a hot holiday for several years now but will have the fortune of visiting Japan this August when I know the weather is going to be warm, but it’s not all about the weather. The world is truly an amazing place and as people we are so lucky to live in times where travel is fast, affordable and not too much of a burden.
We have beauty within our own countries that we can also enjoy but there is little harm in hopping on a plane to a new location that we have never been to before. That’s the real beauty about travelling, it’s going to a new place, facing the unknown and learning something new to improve ourselves as people in both knowledge and culture.
Now where did I put my suitcase?
