The desire to travel lies within us all; however, whether we act on our desires is determined by whether or not we are willing to make traveling a priority.
There are a million reasons not to book a flight today. But for some, the allure of the adventure is too great to miss out on.
A little about me
Growing up in East Tennessee, I’ve been fortunate enough to be a short car ride away from the Great Smoky Mountains. Even at an early age, I loved taking trips to the mountains and spending a whole day just getting lost in the beauty of it.
In March of 2014, I took my first trip out of the US, to Europe. Seeing a completely different culture opened my eyes to what the world truly has to offer, and what I’ve been missing out on. Ever since that first trip, I’ve had the urge to see more, do more, and travel more.
However, after the birth of our son in 2016, I started making excuses not to travel. It just didn’t seem possible for a family to travel the world together, especially with a baby.
And, for a while, that was my mindset. I suddenly had a million reasons not to explore the world, and chase my dreams. But, when I realized I still had that desire, and I still dreamed of traveling the world, it seemed silly to think that having a family stops people from traveling. I realized that the allure of adventure is too great to give up on my dreams.
Even more than that, though, I realized that there are probably lots of people out there that feel as though their window of opportunity for travel are over. Maybe you’ve started a family also, or you just don’t think you have the money to travel to exotic destinations.
That’s when I decided it was time to start The Allure of Adventure. Previously Dream Creative Daily, this blog is meant to provide tips, resources, and advice for aspiring travelers. Whether it be money, family, or something else holding you back, I am here to persuade you to follow your dreams and remind you that, if you really have the desire to travel, it can be made a reality.
In fact, as long as you have the motivation to see the world, nothing can stop you.
