    Let’s check those reasons!

    1. Traveling is not your priority

    That sounds silly, doesn’t it? But it isn’t. If you don’t have the desire to travel close to your heart, it’s never going to be the first thing that pops into your mind. So, when somebody asks you what you’d do with $1 million and you think about buying a house or a car — that’s the wrong answer!

    However, if you’re always wondering about the perfect waves in Indonesia, the yogis in India, or if the pasta in Italy is really that good, then you’re on the right track. It compels you to find out! And when traveling becomes all you want to do, you know that $1 million would keep you on the road for a long time.

    2. You don’t have the money

    Money is probably the main reason people don’t travel and it’s fair enough. If you don’t have it, how can you spend it? Or maybe you think traveling is expensive and you’ll never be able to afford it. The reality is that you do have money, you just don’t spend it on traveling! When you add up how much you spend on your car, clothes, or eating out, you see that the money is there.

    You have to be willing to change your lifestyle a bit in order to travel more. And believe me, you don’t even need that much money. If you choose to stay in hostels or Airbnbs, and travel using low-cost companies, bussing, or even hitchhiking, then it’s a lot cheaper than you think.

    3. You don’t have time

    When you really want something, you find the time to do it. It’s like the hardcore entrepreneurs who, after their 9-to-5 jobs, get home and work for another 2 hours on their own businesses. What do you do on your weekends? And when you take some time off?

    You don’t have to take 2 weeks of holidays and go all the way to Australia! I’m sure you just need a few days to visit a nearby country or city, and still have an awesome time. If you always use your free time to run errands or fix your home, you’ll never have time to travel.

You can visit many of these locations in person, and some of them even offer guided tours.

    Mini Guide to Thailand

    Thailand is affectionately called the “Land of Smiles” and for good reason: everyone seems to genuinely welcome visitors. The country is the most visited in Southeast Asia, offering a wide range of attractions, cultural experiences, and amazing biodiversity. The country is a newly industrialized economy with a high level of human development. So, it’s easy to understand why it attracts so many tourists when they can have a top-notch experience without having to spend a fortune.

    Mini Guide to Indonesia

    Indonesia is the largest archipelago in the world with just over 17,000 islands. It has a population of roughly 261 million people, though over half lives on the island of Java. The nation has a long trading history with other Asian countries and has also been invaded by the Dutch and English Empires. Indonesia is therefore a melting pot of cultures with the largest Muslim population in the world, but also with strong influences from Hinduism and Buddhism, particularly in Bali. It’s also a nature lover’s paradise, with plenty of fauna, volcanoes, beaches, and diving sites.
