Today we have an awesome video post from travelling Dutchman, Henk van der Klok. It's a pretty inspiring call to action for those who are thinking about taking the travel leap. And for those who aren't...
For me, travelling the world is a lifestyle and I believe that anyone can choose to live this life. All you have to do is cross that barrier of fear and get out there!
On the road I usually travel alone and often meet people from completely different walks of life. For me this is one of the greatest joys of travel. For a short while you are immersed in some distant culture and share stories with a total stranger. You learn time and again that there is no right and wrong in life. There's only "different."
Often people ask me how it's possible to stay on the road indefinitely. How do you get money? What if you run out of it? Where do you meet other travellers? What about your future back home?
Many would love to travel long-term themselves but often they think of all kinds of reasons that stop them. I don't speak English very well, I just bought a house, I have to finish school, I'm afraid of flying and the list goes on.
The truth is that you can do anything you set your mind to. The only limits are those you put on yourself!
Most of us have all kinds of insurances. Car insurance, health insurance, funeral insurance, fire insurance, theft insurance. These are all very good things and it's wise to have them. Sometimes, however, you get so mixed up in the plans and routines of everyday life that you forget that there are no insurances in life.
Travel, for me is all about embracing the insecurities. I believe that when you're open to it, opportunity is just around the corner and so you can find adventure, jobs, money and ways to keep travelling anywhere. In the videos on my blog I show other adventures but also how to get a job and different ways of traveling cheap.
The only question you have to ask yourself is, if you could..
