The Backpacking Lessons

“If we wait until we are ready, we’ll be waiting for the rest of our lives.” This quote has been from the movie Into the Wild which states that there isn’t any perfect time to do anything, we make it perfect by doing it at the same time. It is quite appropriate when taken in context to our lives as we spend half of our lives waiting for the right moment to come. The movie showed how a man left everything aside and created a new life after visiting Alaska. Many times we take our life and the time for granted and procrastinate things that have the utmost important in a particular period of time and when we lose the opportunity or realise its importance later, we are usually left with regrets which cannot be repented at all.
There are many things that need to done ASAP, out of which the most important thing is to live in the moment and do what your heart says. For example, you have been planning to take a world tour since last 5 years but aren’t able to make up for the same due to some reasons. Another quote from the movie that says, “The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun”. And there cannot be a better option of experiencing new things than traveling. The best way of discovering and introspecting is, backpacking. Here is how backpacking and traveling makes you a better person.
Rediscover Yourself:
Backpacking is a phenomenon where you take a solo trip to a random destination and live according the situations. The hardships and the challenges of the trip teach you how to deal with different situations and make you strong each time you face them. So, if you haven’t taken a vacation yet, leave everything aside and take time to look into yourself.
Learn to Save Money for Yourself
Backpacking isn’t always only about taking trips to far away destinations or which cost too much. It is about visiting a place that you haven’t done before and that too within a limited budget. Money management is an important part of making the best of your backpacking trip because you cannot learn unless and until you have the will and power to do the same.
Take Risks
Risk taking
“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go”. Yet another quote from the same movie urges us to take risks as it will help us knowing our own limits. We don’t have to rely on others for our happiness and examining our potential when we can do it ourselves. So, go on and hike a mountain and see how far you are able to go.
Make Way for Change
Changes can be good, changes can be bad. It depends on us how we take the changes forward and deal with them because eventually it is going to benefit us only. Traveling also inculcates new changes in an individual, such as we are able to cope with different conditions, we adjust in different situations etc.
Lastly, this quote throws light on a very important aspect: don’t hesitate or allow yourself to make excuses, just get out and do it. You’ll be very glad you did. So, plan a trip soon and notice the change yourself. You can get amazing airfare deals on SmartFares.
