What does travel do?
It doesn’t just make you skint, doesn’t just make you have to book valuable days off work and it doesn’t just leave you jetlagged & sunburnt.
It opens doors for new experiences that carve out memories you’d never think you’d have.
There’s a world outside your comfort zone and, as a creative, you should take the chances (as and when they come) to broaden your horizons.
When I was younger I didn’t believe in holidays, although I think that was mostly just because I couldn’t afford them.
My reasoning was that it was a waste of money and what was the point in paying for memories? After all you can’t do anything with memories, what’s the point in paying for an experience that will be over soon? Why not just splash the money on material things?
How wrong I was. Sometimes you meet people and you unlock life hacks and secrets that change your thinking for the better.
But that’s the thing…the things you think you know when you’re younger, aren’t always as true as they seem when you look back at them with fresh, older eyes.
So if you feel a bit stuck, as if you can’t find inspiration anywhere you should step outside your door and find a plane going somewhere you like the sound of.
