One time, my friend Fred, who I met on my trip to Phuket, said that on his Facebook status. I cannot agree more with him… definitely on a hot day under a scorching sun, the drink that will rejuvenate you is an ice cold beer 🙂
I think we will enjoy more a sweetness of a candy after drinking a bitter herbal medicine… same as getting a massage will be more relaxing after a long day in office. Also the same as buying something will be more meaningful after we saved the money, little by little. I believe you get the picture.
Traveling for me is the experience of being free, from office works, day-to-day routine, family, friends. Not that I’m not close with my friends and family… I love them so much but for me, I’m happy to be able to spend a few weeks away from them, being in another place and seeing something new. The feeling of being free in traveling is addictive, that’s the closest I can get for being totally free without abandoning my duty and responsibilities.
If you’re like me, dreaming to be a full time traveler but you have something you can’t abandon back at home and only have a few weeks in a year for traveling… I have one advice: Do your job or your daily routine with all your heart. Be it working, or studying at school… Any jobs or responsibilities that you have. Do it with all your heart while still keeping the dream alive. When the time comes for you to travel, the feeling would be different…
With all that in mind, you’ll understand the reason why beer is taste better if drink under the sun 🙂
