What do you love most about traveling? I like the feeling of freedom in my daily routine, freedom from stresses, and largely freedom from stress!
So how can you get that without actually travel? My favourite method is to read a excellent book. It may be an old favourite, or a new experience, but it’s to pull me in and keep me so snuggly that I can not even consider anything else! My entire body states,”Aaahh.” Then I get excited about what is going to happen next. The atmosphere and experience of another time and place could work its magic to make me feel I have left my home and flown off to a terrific new experience.
My latest favorite book for this sort of”travel without traveling” is Adventures of a World-Traveling Scientist by Stanley Randolf. Imagine discovering secrets of cultures that are odd, bizarre animal species, new views (such as”after your Spirit Voice”), and terrifying minutes just around the corner! From China to Rarotonga, I sensed very-well-traveled, like an aristocrat from earlier lore.
Then there’s foreign film with subtitles in your first language. You may end up thinking differently about life after viewing something which occurs in another land.
A different way to travel without travel is through finding new civilizations right at home! Or nearby, if you’re able to get to a bigger city. Most cities have at least one ethnic restaurant that won’t just function new-to-you food, but will delight you with a special atmosphere or art and music, and perhaps even amusement native to the operator’s original culture.
However, books are the best for me personally, since I do not need to consume the unknown cuisine when it sounds really awful, but I could pretend I am still open to it. With a fantastic imagination, books can make you fly away to lands unfamiliar with a joyous freedom of soul and heart!
Imagine yourself in which you want to be. Wherever you to go, if you read about it, you’ll have a better sense of being there than with movie, though that will help. Simply consider not just how it would seem for you, but how it might smell, sound, feel mentally, and even feel when your feet hit the sand, or your hand touches a very old rock. It can get very real and truly become a”mini-vacation.”
