The Difference Between Vacationing And Long-Term Travel

It’s rare to hear people talk about the dark side of long-term travel, how exhausting it can be – physically and emotionally. 

With long-term travel it becomes your routine. You go through these same experiences, perhaps more intensely as time and fear passes, but you don’t get to go back home to recharge and appreciate what you just experienced.

So for those considering the digital nomad lifestyle, here’s my advice:

Everything in moderation.

Traveler’s Block Is Real

I am not sure why “traveler’s block” happens, but it is much like “writer’s block” in that you just get stuck.

Easy Steps  To Plan The Perfect Trip

1. Make a list of destinations you are interested in seeing 2. Check Skyscanner deals – from your airport of choice to “everywhere”

3. See how high the destinations you want to see rank (the higher on the list, the least expensive it is to fly there) 4. Narrow down your list to the top 2 destinations on Skyscanner 5. Research possible areas to stay in for each destination (check for close proximity to sightseeing, cafes, nightlife, beach, etc.)

6. Make a list of things you want for lodging (hotel or airbnb?, full apartment or private room?, has wifi, kitchen, washer/dryer, is modern etc.)
