I’ve written posts in the past about how you can help decide where you should go on holiday next & I’ve also wrote countless posts about the destinations I’ve travelled to (most recently with Thomson Holidays to Ibiza)all of which I’m sure are very useful to holiday makers and those who travel (or at least I hope!) and I’m always still looking for inspiration for my next holiday. Reading other blogger’s reviews to flicking through endless holiday brochures has given me plenty of food for thought on many occasions when I’m feeling at a loss. And even after taking all my advice I’m now stuck in a rut. I don’t know exactly where I want to go next?
Over the last ten years I’ve ticked off some bucket list destinations but yet I still realise I haven’t even tapped in to half of it. The world is such a vast place that sometimes it can all get a bit too much trying to close in on one particular destination to travel to and sometimes it’s equally as hard when you leave your heart somewhere else that you can be afraid to try new experiences.
Travel is a huge part of my blog but I’ve felt that this year, despite many trips in the UK and a couple of trips abroad, that my travel content has just not been up to scratch. Purely because I’m not living a life sitting on the back of yachts sipping champagne, or doing fancy things or jetting off to far-flung destinations as much as I’d hoped – and after 2016’s mammoth travel year, it felt like a bit of a let down.
Seeing so many other bloggers heading off on their jollies nearly every month is a bitter pill to swallow when you kinda feel like you’ve been left behind. And like myself, being a blogger that focusses quite heavily on travel is pretty hard to do when one isn’t travelling that much. You start to wonder if you really cut the mustard? (is that the right saying?)
It’s easy to feel inferior in comparison to some of the glossier travel bloggers out there. It really is. You constantly question whether you’re good enough, wonder if it’s really the right path to take. Especially now that darker nights are setting in and the days cooler, it’s easy to find yourself in a slump.
But, I’m one of those people who after wallowing for a little while, I have to decide that enough is enough and I start to roll up my socks off.
I have plans, I have dreams. It’s time to start making them more of a reality.
So, what do you do? Do you just sit back? Accept defeat? Believe you won’t see the world in time?
No. You make those plans, even when you are feeling uninspired.
Where are you heading on holiday next? Did you try the travel name game? What did you get?
