The excitement of traveling
As the first rays of sun, shining through my window and reflecting on my laptops screen. I could no longer deny it. The first feelings of spring have arrived. And it makes me wonder and think about all those new travel plans I have in my head.
And yes of course, I know that officially it is not yet spring season. But the feeling of spring, announces a new chapter. And for me that is all about making new travel plans. So why should I wait any longer? Exactly, time to share a new story.
The excitement of traveling
No doubt, that if you are in love with travelling, you know exactly what I am talking about. It might be that you haven’t been able to travel much in the past few years. But I guarantee you, the feeling was never gone. Once a traveller, always a traveller.
See, as a travel professional I have the pleasure to travel often. To be honest it feels more like a privilege. I became more aware again during the pandemic. I do remember that on of my trips I met a guy in India. Who said “Subhadra, you have already seen more from our country, then I will ever do ”. And even this talk has been like more than 15 years ago, I still remember it. But it also shows that we should not take travel for granted.
Back to planning your next trip
Travel is a journey. It’s not just about the holiday itself. But it is also the pleasure of preparing your journey meticulously. Some customers already plan their trip 11 months ahead. You might feel that the countdown will be long, but when the wait is so long. The reward will feel 100 times better That is part of the excitement of travelling.
And that happiness already starts when I have a talk with the travelers sitting in front of me. And telling them about my personal travel journeys to one of my favorite destinations. I want you to become as enthusiastic about this trip you are going to make, as I am. And seeing that happen, well that gives me a smile as well.
When you are passionate about what you do, that can be contagious. But the thing I like about my job is that I can be so creative. As I often get special requests from customers. The out-of-the-box thinking adds up to my work and to the experiences of our travellers. Never a boring moment when you work in tourism.
When you start the countdown
So when all arrangements have been made, then you can really start the countdown. I have to admit that I was traveling so often, that it became a habit. I would rather take a plane to some exotic destinations then I travel by train to a close by destination.
I felt like I almost forgot how it was to feel excited to prepare for my travel journey. But not anymore. And to be honest. I do get excited again. To travel. To discover. To explore. The world. I can feel the excitement of traveling again.
So maybe this timing is ideal. As spring is arriving. This is a season to get rid of the old and get started with something new.
My adventure is waiting, but when will you plan your next journey? Feel the excitement of travelling?
