Happy Monday, Adventurers! Is it too early for a cocktail?
Monday’s are annoying so it only seemed appropriate to discuss my #1 travel pet peeve on a Monday.
My number one travel peeve is when I witness travelers who are so wrapped in taking photos that they leave their destination wondering what the hell they just saw.
Don’t get me wrong, I highly encourage snapping a few photos at each destination to be able to share your experiences and travels with others. It’s always nice to look back on memories you have created through photos HOWEVER, if you leave your final stop not knowing how the sun hits the mountain peak or the beauty in the colors of the tree branches – You just lost out.
This week I am challenging all of you to plan an adventure in which you DONT take your phone. Start living in the present and creating memories for yourself rather than the people on Instagram. Below I have included a guide to this challenge.
Step One: Choose a destination.
Step Two: Place your phone somewhere inside your home.
Step Three: Walk out the door
Step Four: Live in the present! It
is a precious gift that not many of us appreciate anymore. Our generation has become so consumed in technology and cell phones that we forget to appreciate our lives and the flawlessness of our world. Be aware of your surroundings and live in the moment.
Don’t miss out on life. We only get one shot. Appreciate it.
Until next time, Safe Travels!
