PEOPLE HAVE BEEN on the move since prehistoric times; initially to find food or territory, and then for trade, exploration, and pleasure.
It is only since the 19th century, with the advent of new, efficient methods of transport, that mass travel has become widely available.
In 1990, there were 425 million tourists worldwide.
Have you ever felt homesickness for travelling?
Have you ever felt a strong desire to explore?
Travelling is like being in a time machine, which would take you to the beautiful places of the world.
Imagine something like this, you’re sitting in your living room bored and tired from all the regular schedules, and you think of going somewhere, taking a break from all these regular schedules.
Either you think to go and visit Niagara Falls or the Eiffel Tower, or some foreign tour or maybe you just think to go to some place which is nearby but has awesome natural scenic beauty.
It maybe some trek or camping visiting the beach away from your city or town or state with family or friends or maybe even alone.
This first thought of travelling somewhere gives the sign that you’re experiencing homesickness for travelling.
The second sign that you’re experiencing homesickness for travelling is, when you look upon the saying-
“IF TRAVELLING WOULD HAVE BEEN FREE, YOU WOULD NEVER SEE ME.”
After reading this saying, don’t you feel like, Yes, this is true, you would never see me again!
I would rush out and travel everywhere!
There! There! There! That’s the second sign!!
Basically, when any person who is a foodie he always gets cravings to taste something new or maybe to have his favourite food.
Same like that, any person who is a wayfarer or say wanderer, would always get cravings in his mind to travel from one place to another, to discover the beautiful places, to swim in the deepest oceans, to fly at his highest, to walk on the land and have the luck to watch the beautiful sky, sky that has all kinds of clouds, whether the clouds are the normal ones or the rainy ones.
HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THOSE TWO CLOUDS TOGETHER?
IF NOT THEN NEXT TIME BE SURE TO DO IT!
And then the most beautiful view of the sky would be when there are white clouds, with the rainy ones, with the blue sky and the sun rays surpasses the clouds from in between!
Like you’re literally able to see the rays and the kind of border those rays form in between those clouds.
It is so awesome to experience the wind touching your body when you’re standing at the highest of the mountain.
Listening to what nature is telling you, and you know you do understand the nature’s language.
HOW ? Umm, That feeling, that beautiful feeling you get in your heart and the smile on your face!
If you have atleast these two,
YOU SHOULD ADD UP ONE MORE NAME OF LANGUAGE IN THE LIST OF LANGUAGES YOU KNOW, AND THAT’S THE NATURE’S LANGUAGE!
Travelling is beautiful, you experience nature, you meet new people, get to taste all the new cuisines, you learn new things, you get to know about how people think differently, what beauty they have, and many other things!
YOU DISCOVER MORE THINGS FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR LIFE AND, “THAT’S THE REASON YOU SHOULD BE HOMESICK FOR TRAVELLING!”
