- People have always framed some typical notions about travelling that it is an activity for only the rich ones who can spend all their life’s savings at one go
- One of the most common travel myth is that travel is expensive and unsafe
It’s high time you should stop believing these travel myths and debunk them forever, just sit back and plan out travel with ease.
Travel Myths 1: Travel is expensive
The worst thing that we usually do is equate travel with luxury. You should aim for a travel plan that works within your own set budget and does not make you feel like a beggar in an unknown place. Don’t await for a trust fund or a high-paying job for your travels!
Travel Myths 2: Hitchhiking is unsafe
Hitchhiking is all about taking a lift from a running vehicle and making your travel journey complete. This is efficient at times when you want to cut down your travel cost. You need not take a lift in the first car that stops by; use your own judgment. Don’t presume everyone is a psychotic killer.
Travel Myths 3: Strangers are dangerous
There is a general fear of staying and hiking up with strangers on a travel place which is unknown to you. By far and large, it’s a true thing that the world is unsafe and dangerous. But you can trust sometimes.
Travel Myths 4: Travel is made only for the young and single
Ofcourse, the young and single are crazy about travelling, but who the adults can’t have their travel plans and dreams. You can head up for any location based on your passion for exploring. You may enjoy a superficial family time at an exotic location and still feel young!
Travel Myths 5: You can’t work overseas
Today, the virtual era has made things work out pretty well. You can easily find a virtual job or a full time job at your holiday destination, if you are willing to increase your stay in that amazing place. Find work that suits as a hobby or a passion such as photography or teaching that will also help you engage yourself with the locals.
