What is your favorite thing about travel? I love feeling that I'm free from my daily routine, free from stress, and especially free from stress! In addition, the urge to see new things, meet new people, and be immersed in another culture.
So how do you get it out of the way? My favorite way is to read a great book. It can be a very popular, or new, tool, but it has to drag me in and keep me there unintentionally so I can't think of anything else! My whole body says, "Aaahh." Then I get excited about what will happen next. The way it is at one time and another place can be so magical that it feels like I've left my house and gone on a new adventure.
My favorite book recently on the "Travel without Travel" genre is Adventures of a World-Traveling Scientist by Stanley Randolf. Imagine discovering the secrets of strange cultures, fascinating animal species, new ideas (such as "following Your Voice"), and deadly moments around the corner! From China to Rarotonga, I had a successful, religious life from the beginning.
And there is an external movie with footnotes in your original language. You may find that you think differently from life after you see something happening in another country. But I still love books!
Another way to travel without traveling is to discover new cultures at home! Or nearby, if you can get to the big city. Many towns have a one-stop-shop that will not only offer fresh food, but also entertain you with unique style or art and music, and is probably a favorite of the owners' culture.
Anyway, books are the best for me, because I shouldn't eat obscure foods if they sound too dangerous, but I can pretend I still fit. And with that right in mind, books can make you travel to unfamiliar lands with freedom of heart and life!
Just think of where you want to be. Lake Hawaii? A Taj Majal? The Great Pyramid of Egypt? No matter where you want to go, if you read about it, you will have a better chance of getting there than with a movie, though this may help. Just think no how it looks to you, but how it smells, sounds, feels strong, and even physically feels your foot hit the sand, or your hand holds the oldest stone. It can be very real and turn into a "checkup & # 39; s holiday."
