Why do you travel?
In a recent BootsnAll article, author Jo Fitzsimons reflected on her time at the famous Full Moon Party on Koh Phangan during an extended trip. After a conversation with a fellow traveler, she began to question why it is that we travel?
While I’m never going to be one to say travelers shouldn’t party or go to famous tropical islands for a few days of debauchery, I also know that there should be a balance. Letting loose, having fun, and maybe being a little stupid every once in a while is not a bad thing – both in everyday life and while we’re on the road.
But when partying and hanging out with only other travelers is all one does on the road, it might be time to re-assess why it is you left in the first place. Jo outlines some great ideas and tips for remembering why we travel.
