Is Traveling Your Hobby?
People are always in search of defining a hobby that will help them get that dose of relaxation and have fun when running that activity. This activity ranges in a wide spectrum of things that bring pleasure to the senses up to that level where people feel more relaxed with a mind away from all the daily stress. For this reason a hobby is seen as a stress buffer by many people these days.
On the other hand we find another category of people who do not have a hobby or time to take care of their hobby. This is too bad, because these people will permanently have issues with their state of mind when feeling too tired or too overwhelmed by personal problems. All those who have a hobby will find their peace of mind in doing that specific activity taking their mind away from those issues that otherwise torment their everyday existence.
Some of the most commonly met hobbies are: reading, sporting activities, painting, listening to music, photography but also traveling. While the last one can prove to be quite an expensive one, it doesn’t have to be this way all the time. You can find week ends as good moments to travel in the vicinity of your residential area that won’t cost you that much. If you prefer traveling alone, then you would better ride a bike to the nearest outdoor location and enjoy the freedom that Mother Nature offers to your senses.
There is as well the hobby to travel to other far away destinations. This is a great opportunity to meet other ethnicities, cultures, weather climates and all the things that define one nation. Traveling abroad is not a hobby to entertain all the time unless that you are truly wealthy and can afford paying for these frequent trips.
Otherwise, a trip abroad can be done at least once a year where you grab your camera and some useful stuff in your backpack and off you go to see the world. Nothing compares to the feeling of traveling, to the new experiences that you will live while coming in contact with other people and their culture. Having a taste of their life and their environment is a feeling that brings within satisfaction while your batteries are charged for the next day.
It is a pity that not many people can afford having traveling as their hobby given its high price, but as mentioned above with carefully planning throughout the year you can afford paying for at least one trip abroad every 12 months. You can make a hobby from planning to take a trip each year in a different country. This world is so big and has so much beauty to display that you will have all sorts of opportunities to experience new things with every year that comes.
I am starting a new blog (I used to run this website years ago!) and will be sharing my adventures and thoughts about art, music, entertainment and travel. I travel around the world writing in my journal and my thoughts and send them to local papers and things like that. Sometimes it will just be thoughts, sometimes articles about things I felt like researching and whatever. Enjoy my writing and please share and comment on any stories you find interesting or questions if you have them.
