Why Do People Travel?


Most people at some point in their life will have an urge to travel. This may be a two week holiday to somewhere warm to top up your suntan or this could be a life changing year, or longer, trip. Everyone has their own reasons that they decide to travel but most people are triggered by something. This is often a life-changing event or it could be a sudden change of feeling giving you the desire to fly the nest and set off on an adventure. After speaking to people I have met travelling, I have discovered, what I believe, are the main reasons why people travel.

Why do people travel?


1. To Visit Family


Some family members move to another country. It can be on the other side of the world or just in another country next to yours. No matter where they are you will want to visit them at some point or another. The great thing about family visits is not only that you get to catch up with loved ones but you also get to see how they live and get up close and personal with their new culture. These new cultures could also encourage you to explore different parts of the world yourself.

2. To Spend Time With friends

A Gap Year or world trip can be described as the best time of your life. The memories you will make are enough to last you a life time, what better way to enjoy these memories than with friends. Planning a holiday with friends can be a great way to say goodbye before heading off to college / uni or just a great thing to do together as something you will always remember. I mean who wouldn’t want to travel from country to country relaxing of different beaches every day with your best friend? I know I would.

3. To Find Better Weather!

No matter where you live chances are you will, at some point, moan about the climate that you are in. “I’m too hot” or ‘It’s too cold”. Lots of people travel simply to escape the climate they experience on a daily basis. People who live in colder climates race to the sunshine to top up their tans and people from countries which are constantly hot may travel to places to try activities such as skiing which they could not do so easily in their home country.

4. To Discover New Cultures

Some people like adventures and to escape their normal monotonous life. They like not knowing what they can expect and want to deepen their knowledge in other lifestyles. How do other people live? What do they eat? What are their hobbies and values? And what better way to find these things out than by exploring the world.

5. To Find Themselves

This is a very common one, and this one in particular seems to be triggered by a life-changing event at home. It could be that you lost your job, a long term relationship broke up, you finished university and still have no idea what you want to do as a career or it could be the loss of a loved one. People who go travelling to find themselves tend to travel alone.

6. To Find Love

Are you unlucky in love? Live in a small town and just can’t meet anyone? Then go travelling! The very least you’ll find is someone with the same desire to travel and experience different countries and cultures as you. Going travelling certainly doesn’t guarantee you’ll meet the love of your life, but travelling around certainly gives you loads of opportunities to meet new people.


7. Wanderlust

Wanderlust is a strange word but what does it mean? Descended from the German word ‘Wandern’ meaning to walk and ‘Lust’ which is described as ‘A very strong or irresistible impulse’. In short it means that you travel because you have the urge to. You may not have one particular factor that made you book a flight. All you know is that you want to travel and you want to travel NOW!

8. You Won the Lottery

Ok, so this is a very rare reason, but I reckon at least half of lottery winners go an at least an extended holiday! One day hopefully I will be so lucky that I win big on the lottery. Some people, who have won millions have no idea what to do with their money. They already bought a big house but that’s not enough. What better way to spend your money travelling from country to country taking in all the amazing sights and cultures.

Whatever the reason you decide to travel I have no doubt you will have the most amazing time and will catch the ‘Travel Bug’ and never want to stop.

Thanks!!

ΠΙΣΩ ΣΤΟ ΧΡΟΝΟ ΣΤΑ ΜΑΓΙΚΑ ΚΥΘΗΡΑ ~VISIT KYTHIRA/CERIGO GREECE~

Οι καλύτερες Τιμές για Δωμάτια !! Booking.com Ταξιδεύοντας  με πορισμό την Ελαφόνησο για camping στην ξακουστή παραλία του Σίμου . Τρία χρόνια προσπαθώ να επισκεφτώ το νησί και όλο κάτι στραβώνει και τελικά δεν τα καταφέρνω . Δυστυχώς και αυτή την φορά κάτι προέκυψε...Μία περίπου ώρα ο πριν φτάσω στο λιμάνι της Πούντας για να πάρω το ferry boat κάναμε  μια στάση στο χωριό Άσωπος για ενα καφεδάκι . Εκείνη την στιγμή που περιμένουμε τους καφέδες έρχεται ειδοποίηση στο κινητό μου "φωτιά στην Ελαφόνησο"!! Μετά από λίγα λεπτά άλλη ειδοποίηση "εκκενώνεται το camping " στο μεταξύ έχουν περάσει είδη δύο πυροσβεστικά οχήματα .Όπως καταλαβαίνεται έπρεπε να αλλάξουμε γρήγορα πλάνο . Μετά από ένα μικρό meeting καταλήξαμε στα "άγνωστα" μέχρι τότε Κύθηρα .Με μια γρήγορη αναζήτηση τα Κύθηρα είχαν πάρα πολλά να δούμε και το βασικότερο έχουν camping . Κατευθείαν μπαίνουμε στην μηχανή και φεύγουμε για Νεάπολη από όπου αναχωρεί το πλοίο για το νησί .

Υπάρχουν δύο τρόποι για να φτάσεις στο νησί είτε από Πειραιά είτε από Λαύριο μέσω της εφαρμογής  Ferryscanner  βρήκαμε και κλείσαμε τα εισιτήρια μας . 

Το καράβι αναχωρεί στις 08:00 Οπότε ένα γρήγορο καφέ φορτώνουμε τη μπέμπα και φεύγουμε για Λαύριο. Αφού φτάνουμε στο λιμάνι θα περάσουμε από το πρακτορείο να παραλάβουμε τα εισιτήρια και θα επιβιβαστούμε στο πλοίο.


Η Κύθνος απέχει περίπου  δύο ώρες από το λιμάνι του Λαυρίου βρίσκεται ανάμεσα στην Κέα και την Σέριφο. Με μια μικρή αναζήτηση στο google είδα ότι έχει δύο μεγάλα χωρία τη χώρα της Κύθνου ή Μεσαριά  και τη Δρυοπίδα αλλά και τρις κύριοι παραθαλάσσιοι οικισμοί…

ΤΑΞΙΔΙ ΣΤΗΝ ΙΟΡΔΑΝΙΑ ~ ΤΙ ΠΡΕΠΕΙ ΝΑ ΓΝΩΡΙΖΕΙΣ ΠΡΙΝ ΠΑΣ

Λίγα λόγια για την Χώρα 
Το Χασεμιτικό Βασίλειο της Ιορδανίας ή απλά Ιορδανία  είναι μια χώρα  της Μέσης Ανατολής. Συνορεύει με τη Συρία στα Βόρεια με το Ιράκ στα Βόρεια ανατολικά με την Σαουδική Αραβία στα ανατολικά και νότια  και τέλος με το Ισραήλ στα δυτικά . Ο συνολικός  πληθυσμός της Χώρας φτάνει τα  περίπου 10 εκατομμύρια και είναι εξολοκλήρου άραβες . Οι περισσότεροι Ιορδανοί είναι Σουνίτες μουσουλμάνοι ενώ υπάρχουν αρκετοί Σίτες και Αχμάντι. Ο Βασιλιάς του Κράτους είναι ο ανώτερος υπάλληλος του Κράτους . O πρωθυπουργός επιβλέπει το έργο της κυβέρνησης και κυβερνάει σε συνεργασία με το βασιλιά . Πρέπει να γνωρίζεις ότι οι άνθρωποι αγαπούν και σέβονται  πάρα πολύ τον βασιλιά και την οικογένεια του , παντού θα δείς φωτογραφίες τους  .  Αν θέλετε να ρωτήσετε κάτι να το κάνετε  με απόλυτο σεβασμό . Η κύρια πηγή εσόδων είναι ο τουρισμός δυστυχώς από το 2011 μετά το πόλεμο στη Συρία υπάρχει ραγδαία πτώση . Η Ιορδανία επίσης είναι ένας από τους σημαντικότερους γαστρονομικούς προορισμ…

Exploring Berlin

Μost travelers choose to visit Berlin , the Capital of Germany is the heart of Europe and full of history It’s maybe not the prettiest European city but if you’re interested in Nightlife or culture  you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in Berlin .The locals are very hospitable and polite.There are many immigrants from all over Europe.they create a very warm atmosphere and from day to day you fall in love with this city.


We chose to visit the city in the autumn but the best time is the summer.Because many concerts and events take place in and around the city.Cycling will be more enjoyable in the big parks that the city offers from Brandenburg Tor to Zoologischer garten berlin .


We were lucky the weather was wonderful. From the very first moment we rented a bicycle to explorer the city and we bought the Berlin Welcome card which we have free access to public transport and discount a variety of museums and attractions (Berlin Welcome Card). Driving a bike is very safe. Most locals u…

TOP 5 BEACHES IN ATHENS

Kape Sounio


I think it is the best beach of Athena. while you are there, you will think you are making a holiday on a small island of the Cyclades. If you have visited the Poseidon Temple in Sounio then make a stop for a little swim. There is a nice bar where you can enjoy a cool beer overlooking the Aegean .The beach is not organized, so you will need an umbrella






 Sesi Beach


It is located outside the village of Sesi, 22 km from the Marathon Tomb and just 45 minutes from Athens , beach with fine pebbles and sand, crystal clear waters and salt lakes , ideal for families. There is also a small tavern where you can eat something if you are hungry . I suggest you get to the beach early in the morning because later there will not be enough parking space for your car. The road is good , only 200 meters from the coast the road becomes dirt if you do not have a jeep it would be better to leave the car back and walking to the beach.





Τsonima Beach


At a distance of 20 kilometers from the center…
