12 Reasons You’re Not Traveling Right Now and How to Break Free

Everybody loves traveling and if you don’t, I wonder why you’re reading TravelVersed. No, seriously, you just need to open your Facebook or Instagram to see incredible photos of your friends gallivanting around the world. Yet, you’re not one of the jet-setters, why?

There could be many reasons and they’re all valid. You should take a look at your life and your choices and see if there’s any room for change. Sometimes, the answer might be a lot easier than you think. So, next time you open your favorite social media, it’ll be you posting the photos.

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.
