Reasons for Not Being Able to Travel

The world is an open place for exploration for those who are willing to take the chance and risk in exploring it. There are many mysteries and adventures awaiting a person who would like to indulge in adventures and discoveries of this world. Likewise, there are many nooks and crannies which have not yet been explored in this world. There are diverse cultures, places, and people with which one can readily come in contact during one’s travels, and hence, the potentials and possibilities for growth of personality and learning are enormous for the person who is willing to engage in travels. Yet, not many of us have the chance to travel due to some reasons. These reasons may be valid or not; yet, the truth still remains that travel is one way of expanding one’s consciousness.

We may not be able to travel because we are incapacitated to travel. Say for instance, we are sick and it is not advisable for us to take long distance travels. Likewise, some of us can’t travel because of lack of money and resources. Yet, this may not be a valid reason for us not to travel considering the famous saying that we all know that “if there’s a will, there’s always a way.” The real reason behind this alibi of lack of money is lack of prioritizing travel. If one really wants to travel, and surely sees the benefits that one can derive from travels, and one will certainly exert the necessary effort to get the needed resources for travels. It definitely boils down to prioritizing travel over other things.

Other Reasons Why People did not travel
Other people have lived and died without ever venturing beyond their localities and the places of birth. We don’t know their reason for not being able to travel; yet, it’s sad to know that they were deprived of the privilege of seeing the wonders and beauty of the world outside the confines of their place of birth. Had they read, encountered, and tried to find inspirational travel quotes, they would have been inspired to take the risks to get out of their comfort zones and indulge themselves in discovering the outside world. However, whatever their reasons may be, they may be valid, and we are not in the position to contest their reasons. Yet, it is a sad fact that they were denied or precluded from seeing the different wonders of the world.

Two Friends of Mine
I got a friend who wants to travel yet could not, because of the restrictions of his office job. Likewise, I got another friend who can travel, while, at the same time, indulge himself in his work anywhere in the world. My other friend’s job is day trading, and he can day trade anywhere in the world while traveling. As long as he is connected to the internet, he can work, and I think he is fortunate enough to have a job that allows him to have the resources and time for travels. It is always a sad thing when the restrictions of a job or any other situation hinder us from achieving our dream of seeing the wonders of the world.
