Travel is one of the great joys of modern life. The freedom to roam wherever you please, to awaken your senses to cultures unlike your own, this is one of the best ways to open your mind and heart, to feel a sense of connection to every being on the planet. For this reason, and many more, travel is quite fitting for the modern day man or woman.
What’s more, in this day and age, you can combine your travel with a retreat and experience locales that enhance the spiritual practice. Hawaii, Bali, India, Mexico, Costa Rico, Thailand – these are all places around the world where people flock – for the peaceful natural settings as well as the spiritual vibe that’s so strong.
You get to tailor your adventures to best suit your preferences, or you can choose a place you don’t think you’d normally be drawn to only to find expectations exceeded and surprises around every corner.
It’s healthy for us all to get out of our comfort zone and habitual day-to-day routines. Sometimes it takes an open-minded and open-hearted exploration of a foreign land to do this. Plus, you get to meet people from all across the globe and expand your group of friends in amazing ways.
Traveling regularly is one of the best ways to see that there’s not just one way of doing things. There’s not just one way of living a life. It’s also one of the best ways to take care of yourself. We all need a break from the hum-drum. We all need to travel to ignite our unique sensibilities.
If you’ve been dreaming of treating yourself to a retreat, there’s no better time like the present. You’ll never have regrets about money spent on travel experiences. The only regrets you might have are not taking those open-hearted leaps. So where do you want to roam? Put on your dreaming cap, and start making your travel plans a reality!
