Busting 5 Common Excuses People Make To Avoid Travel Trips
Posted On 30th August, 2016 @ 19:46 pm by Althea Rodrigues

Enough of those lame excuses!

1) “I can’t afford it”

 Well yes, if you’re going to look up the internet, the world is going to seem overwhelmingly expansive and impossible to travel on a shoestring budget. But then you have handy travel blogs and the beautifully curated itineraries, all of which will help you plan better, and realise that there are experiences for every kind of budget. In need of some real expert advice? Find a travel agent.

2) “I’m a Busy Bee”

Is it? For your information, a bee works up to 12 hours a day, seven days a week. Most of us don’t even commit to half of that every day, and we demand our weekends too. Some of you will argue that you actually do commit 12 hours or even more to work… to which we have just one response: WHY? According to a study published by the American Journal of Epidemiology, long working hours for a prolonged period increase the chance of heart disease.  It’s time to rethink your life goals and kick that couch.

3) “I don’t have a travel buddy”

This is an absolutely ridiculous reason not to travel. Solo travel is one of the most refreshing, character-building experiences you can gift yourself. And you’ll meet dozens of interesting characters along the way -- some will serve as impromptu travel buddies, others may turn into friends for life.

4) “ I’ve never travelled this far”

Well, if you’ve never attempted to crack the shell, how will you ever find out what’s on the outside? Push the boundaries, explore the unknown, take the road less travelled. Worse case scenario, you get thoroughly lost – but that’s when you discover a whole new path. Trust us, that can be fun too.

5) “I don’t know the local language” 

Communication is not a barrier unless you’re from an alien planet altogether. If you’re travelling across India, you’ll notice most locals speak dialects of a common language, so it shouldn’t be a problem if you’re familiar with the source language. On the other hand, communicating in Hindi in the North and English in the South is usually a safe bet. If things get complicated or you feel like you need to up your game, it’s 2016 – we have apps and Google Translate. Use them.
