It might seem weird for you to spend a lot of money to go on a trip to
places you know you won’t enjoy. For instance, if you’re not an outdoorsy
person, there’s no point to go on a mountain climbing trip. If you hate big cities,
you will probably not have
fun in New York or Paris. Despite having preferences on the places to visit,
the other locations are still worth pursuing. You might feel surprised that
they’re enjoyable too.
You don’t know you dislike them until you get there
You always tell yourself that you have preferences in life. As a result,
you exclude everything else that you think isn’t within your list of
preferences. The truth is that you might still enjoy other places. You just
need to visit them first. Also, just because you prefer one type of vacation
doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy the rest. You have to give them a chance before
You need to conquer your fear
Another reason why you have to visit places you dislike is that you need
to conquer your fear. You dislike them not because they’re terrible, but
because you’re fearful. For instance, you don’t want to go
on a camping trip because you’re afraid being in the middle of nowhere. You
also don’t want to be in an uncomfortable environment. However, a camping trip
can teach you a lot of life lessons. It also gives you an opportunity to live
life like how it was done in the past. Therefore, even if you’re afraid to do
it, you have to give it a shot.
You want different trips
It’s boring if you only have to visit the same place at all times. You
already know what to expect. There’s nothing wrong in going to places that are
familiar to you since you know you will enjoy it. However, it might also be a
good thing to diversify your trip. You need a variety of experiences. It feels
good to try what you don’t know. You might love it and learn from it.
You can enjoy it with your friends
You might have friends whose travel choices are different from yours. You
end up not bonding with them because you always decline when asked to go.
Conversely, if it’s your turn to invite them, they will also decline. You need
to change your attitude and try other travel activities. You can build your
friendship when you have the chance to travel together.
You will feel proud of yourself
If you have the chance to finally go to the places you never knew you
would, it’s satisfying. You might even decide to go to a similar place in the
future. Whether it’s alone or with friends, it doesn’t matter anymore.
Take a look at the places you think you will enjoy and organize the trip
now. You can also invite the people
you think will make the trip more fun and relaxing for you.
