So technically I haven’t been travelling properly, but then I went away with Trek America which was pretty much what I can imagine some aspects of travelling to be like. In the time I was away, I learnt a whole new way of life, and experienced stuff I had never experienced before. So if you’re thinking about going away on a trip soon, here’s what may happen…
You will probably do an outside wee at some/many points.
You get so close with people you will get to the point of discussing trips to the toilet.
You wear stuff that you’d never wear at home
You buy stuff that you would never ever buy at home. I WANT ALL THE KNICK KNACKS.
You miss the littlest things such as a cup of tea, or a hot shower.
You learn to sleep anywhere
You forget what it’s like to know what’s going on with the outside world.
You realise that there is more to life than worrying about the size of your thighs.
Wi-fi is the holy grail. Finding wifi is like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Seeing any kind of animal whilst you’re away will make you miss your pet. I may have said at one
point ‘ omg that chipmunk reminds me of Frank.’ WTF
You will realise how amazing seeing the world is.
You realise you can do stuff on your own and exit your comfort zone. You go glen coco.
