Travel Every Day is the motto of this blog.
It seems like a bold prescription. Almost impossible. For the average working-age individual, traveling every day appears completely out of the question. Throw in relationships, aging parents, school, and a host of other complications and we assume that the only people who can travel every day are the few professional travel bloggers and TV travel celebrities.
When Paul and I, the creators of this website, began our search for a motto, we wanted something that conveyed our travel philosophy. Sure it’s fun to read about travel bloggers who travel 100% of the time. But that just isn’t the reality for most of us. Paul, for example, is a registered nurse, and I am a military officer. We just can’t travel every day at the moment.
So why the motto?
Because it’s possible to travel in your mind every day. Hold on! I’m not going into some strange rant about imagination and voodoo mind travel. I simply mean that one is able to travel, or think/plan travel every day. Yes, it’s true. We could have made our motto “Travel Every Day (or think about it).” But that just isn’t catchy. And reality is that we can travel, or plan travel, every day.
That is the aim of this blog. To motivate, equip, and train you how to travel, or plan travel, every day.
How do we do that? Simple. Follow the below travel “workout” plan to get your travel goals in shape so that you can travel more.
- Set aside ten minutes to plan travel daily
- Decide where you want to visit
- How long you want to stay for
- Things you want to do
- Draft a rough cost for the trip, and then add an additional 25%. Always build in a cushion.
- Start monitoring flights and lodging costs for the best available rates
- Book well in advance, if possible
- Rinse and repeat
By following this simple process you will be able to set goals, work toward their completion, and eventually bring them to pass. Breakthrough and success are tied to daily consistency.
This was a short post, but I hope it conveys our hopes that you are able to travel, or at least take steps towards travel, every day.
Now get out there and Travel Every Day.
