4 Signs You Need to Travel ASAP

You wake up and instead of just getting on with your life, you start daydreaming about distant lands. Your job (or college) suddenly feels utterly boring and you can’t wait to get back home and learn more about an interesting culture. You pretend you don’t know what’s going on, but deep down you do.

You need to travel! And it has to be as soon as possible!

Don’t worry, it happens with everyone who loves traveling. You start thinking about your past adventures and how cool they were; you think about that freedom you only get when you’re on the road, but then you realize it will take a few weeks — if not months — until you can travel again.

What you don’t know is that a small miracle happens and you unconsciously start traveling or rather, acting as a traveler. Basically, if you can’t hit the road, the road comes to you!

Let me show you the symptoms of the travel withdrawal:

1. You Feel Like Eating Exotic Food

“What is Peruvian food like?” You ask yourself. There are only two ways to find out: you either visit a Peruvian restaurant or research tasty recipes and cook the meal yourself. But when you think that there are nearly 200 countries and territories around the world, you realize there is some serious cooking coming your way!

2. You Want to Watch International Movies (or Ones About Travel)

I mean, everybody likes Hollywood movies, but the cinematic universe goes way beyond that and when you’re craving the unknown, there is nothing better than sampling foreign movies and perspectives.

So you might find yourself watching Life is Beautiful, Incendies or The Secret in Their Eyes, to name a few. Or if you’d like the foreign and the adventure together then you’ll pick The Motorcycle Diaries, Amélie or Y Tu Mamá También.

3. You Delve Into Travel Blogs and Travel Writing

There is a reason you found yourself here at TravelVersed, right? But I’m pretty sure there are several other blogs you follow that whet your desire to travel. You spend countless nights reading about the adventures of Internet bloggers and wishing you were the one exploring far flung places.

When you have had enough of the digital world, you go to your local library and pick the mighty Shantaram, which takes you to the heart of India and gives you insights about such an amazing culture. The possibilities are vast and it’s just a matter of choosing the classics (I hear On The Road, or maybe the recent Eat, Pray Love?)

The Best Comforting Drinks for Fall from Around the World

As the weather starts getting colder, we start looking for comforting drinks that will help keep us warm.  Some of the most popular options in America are also the easiest to find — there are more than 13,000 Starbucks locations in the United States alone, and they have a huge percentage of the market cornered already — people love their pumpkin spice lattes! However, there are a lot of downsides to visiting a café every day, especially if your go-to order is a sweetened latte or Frappuccino. It’s easy to make delicious warm drinks at home, which allows you to flavor them to your taste, saving both money and calories

The 12 Best European Holiday Towns to Visit this Fall

The temperatures in Europe soar in August, and many businesses close their doors as workers seek breezes and cooler temperatures elsewhere. This leaves only the tourists in these larger cities, wondering where everyone went. Instead of heading to Europe in August, when most of the city has left for summer vacation, travel across the Atlantic in September and October, and visit all the cities that European holidaymakers have recently vacated. These holiday destinations are hidden gems that have mostly been overlooked by North Americans — until now.

The Most Beautiful University and College Campuses in the World

When it comes to picking a post-secondary school, there are a lot of factors that should be considered. Schools are generally assessed for the quality of their academics, as well as the various other factors that affect student life, like housing, food, athletics, and extracurriculars. One factor that many people fail to consider is the look and feel of the campus itself — after all, students will be spending at least three or four years there.
