I recently came across an article that stated the biggest regret among elders was not traveling more often.
“Over and over, the elders revealed that their greatest life regret was not travelling enough. Some thought it was too expensive, some put it off after having children, whilst others decided to wait until retirement, often by which time it was too late.”
We spend so much money on clothes, products, etc. Things that make us temporarily happy and that don’t last forever. However, memories and experiences are what will actually matter years from now and the things we will be able to cherish when we’re older.
I firmly believe in living a fulfilling and spontaneous life. That is part of the reason why I travel as much as I can! I want memories to look back on. I want to be able to say I have zero regrets when I’m old and grey. I want to be able to tell my children and their children all of the incredible things I did when I was younger.
There is a whole entire world out there and we have the amazing opportunity to explore it. So, why not?
