Love your job? Your kids? Church? Exercising? Whatever it is that you’re into, look deeper and you’re sure to come out with a place that’s perfect for you. If you have a particular hobby, odds are there’s a convention catering to your interest. If being with family and friends inspires you, then, by all means, look for a destination where you can maximize your time with them. Don’t be afraid to double down on what you already know makes you happy. Be a geek! Show some enthusiasm. Follow your bliss wherever it may take you.

Don’t Dream It, Be It

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Lots of us never actually got to do the job we fantasized about as a child or to live the fabulous lifestyle we hoped to achieve as adults. And that’s fine because travel offers the opportunity to explore possibilities that might otherwise elude us in our day-to-day lives. For example, someone who wanted to grow up to be a ballet dancer might consider taking a week of lessons in a city famous for its ballet such as New York, Paris, or Moscow. No dream is too big or small, and if you’re open to the possibilities of making at least some aspect of it come true when you travel, then you’re doing it right!

Mixing Work and Play

Yes, some people actually do love their jobs and use their free time to travel for an opportunity to further develop their career paths or become more knowledgeable about their profession. If you think an ideal vacation could entail an industry conference, visiting a campus with an interesting graduate program, or meeting with an expert in a particular field, then you might just be a goal-oriented traveler who would never be satisfied lounging by a pool when you could be bettering yourself. By all means, get the rest and relaxation you deserve, but don’t deny your ambitions, especially as it relates to travel!

Do you ever wish you had more time and energy for that Wednesday night yoga class, or to book a session in that pottery studio in the town over from yours? Make whatever it is you crave to do but can never find the time to get around to doing, the catalyst for your next adventure. You could go away on a yoga retreat in Colorado … or maybe even India. Similar plans could be made for a ceramic centered time in New Mexico … or Japan. All that’s left to do is find cheap flight deals to get you there!
