How traveling leads to freedom and happiness

By on 22. August 2017

Traveling leads to freedom and happiness. Always! Traveling the world fulfills our soul. It helps us to grow as a person. We evolve. Slow but steady. It spreads our minds. It opens our hearts. And eventually it lightens the ship and lets us sail off into a better life where we just have way more good days than bad days. A life to remember. It will be a life our kids can proudly tell their kids about and isn’t that already the most valuable thing to achieve?

 

How traveling leads to freedom and happiness

This is what we all hope and search for in our lifes – to become truely free. Free of boundaries, old habits and the chains of a modern society. A way of living, that gets faster and faster every single day…

Where it all starts

But where to start chasing the ultimate goal of pure freedom and happiness? It starts by taking the first little steps into cold water. Leaving your comfort zone and stepping out into a world full of unknown and exciting adventures. Quitting the 9 to 5 job and focusing on the epic journeys ahead. That’s where the feeling of freedom and happiness starts to evolve.

Australia was one of the places where it all started for me

But it is different for every person. Everyone has another way to approach the challenge of becoming a completely free human being. Some people like to hang out and chill as much as they can. Some others do all different kind of sports. The next one tries it with Yoga or meditation. I am not sure, if any of these approaches help. I certainly don’t think so.

Travelling leads to freedom and happiness – It’s the only way

In my opinion, pure freedom and true happiness can only be reached by conquering the world, unconditionally chasing your biggest hopes and dreams. Experiencing moments, that last forever, making friends all over the world and trying out new food I have never tasted before.

Bali was the first place where I tasted real Asian food




Making memories

For me, true freedom and happiness for example takes over when I talk to complete strangers anywhere in the world about what makes their country so great. Seing the smiling faces while they tell their stories about themselfs and the place they call “home”.

Visiting the home of a Maori tribe (New Zealand’s natives)

The feeling of freedom really overwhelms me when I see places only a few people see in their lifes – like the lost temples of Angkor Wat. Or, when I master a task while traveling, which only a small percentage of people is able to master – like climbing the never sleeping vulcanic giant in Indonesia called Rinjani. Moments like walking along the Killing Fields in Cambodia are the ones, that fulfill your heart with pride and humility, but also make you feel free in a way, which is hard to explain. Just being able to travel wherever I want, whenever I want is a big gift. This gift shows you how traveling leads to freedom and happiness.

On the top feeling free and happy like never before

Making incredible memories is a big part why traveling leads to freedom and happiness. Visiting 2.000 year old rice terraces in Banaue, going on a island hopping tour in paradise or just camping at the unique landscape of southern Sweden with your buddies are memories to always hold on to. And the good thing is, you can always put yourself in these shoes again and have the same incredible feelings of freedom and happiness.

Awesome people

But sometimes it’s not a certain moment, which fulfills your heart with happiness and the feeling of freedom. Sometimes it’s the people, that come out of nowhere, share their time with you and leave you speachless in the end. Just like this business lady in Mui Nè, that picked me up on the streets after I drove for 10 hours straight with my dodgy motorbike along the coastline of Vietnam and had no place to sleep, offering me a luxerious hotel room at the beach for free for 2 nights, integrating me into their family and treating me like I was one of them.

Vietnam was the place where I met awesome people

These are the people and stories, that make a difference in your life. They teach you to loose your negative point of view and prejudgements about other people, cultures and countries. These people are the ones, that bring you closer to where you want to be. They take us further to the point where we start to become conscious about our behavior and our thinking. Because ultimately, freedom is a state of mind and every single person is in charge of their own thoughts. So, it is only up to ourselfs to reach the state of ultimate freedom and happiness.

It’s all up to ourselfs – Nobody can stop you

Where it all ends

Traveling leads to freedom and happiness and this can never be changed. I think it has something to do with how human beings have developed over time. Our ancestors have all been pilgrims and wanderers back in the days. It is in our blood to travel from one destination to another until we eventually find a place we call home. This is why traveling the world makes us happy, because we already know the feeling, which is deeply manifested in our DNA.

It’s in our DNA to travel the world





In my opinion, the fact that traveling leads to freedom and happiness, never really ends. It will always be there, because of the people we gonna meet along the way, the memories we gonna make with them, the inspiration we give to younger people and the positive vibrations we spread, will live on forever. In our day of age where everything gets documented through the internet, free and happy people can pass on their positive attitude way easier than in the past.

Spread your wings and fly

Positive energy will last forever

And this is why this rule will last forever and keep growing more and more. At the and of the day it all come down to this:

Positive energy, like freedom and happiness caused from traveling, can never be dissolved

  • Strolling through paradise... 😍👌🌴
.
Some places on our planet are just crazy beautiful .
It's almost impossible to describe the beauty and the feeling that you get when you walk around at beaches like this one 🌞
.
I could not say which beach of all the ones I have seen so far would be the best one, but all the beaches in El Nido are definitely top ranked 🌏
.
TELL ME: Where did you really feel lost (in a good way 😉) the last time???
.
#paradise #island
  • Hello mate, how are you? 😀🐻🐾
.
Isn't that the cutest animal on earth?
.
What I can definitely say for myself is that they are easily the fluffiest I have ever touched 😍
.
And they are by far the most relaxed animals ever. Maybe because of all the eucalyptus they eat... 😉
.
TELL ME: What's YOUR favourite animal?
.

  • The door to Angkor Wat during sunrise 😍🌅
.
I love a good sunrise! Not only because of its enormous beauty, but mainly for the fact that it's the perfect symbol for a new chance 👌
.
A new chance to improve
.
A new chance to do something good
.
A new chance to bring value to the world
.
A new chance to walk towards the right direction
.
And ultimately and new chance to get the best out your life and make great memories!
.
Great Memories that you can tell grandchildren about in 50 years from now, which will teach them some valuable lessons for life 🙏

  • A perfect example of a unique city that can teach a great lesson❗
.
Spending some time in one of the coolest and most beautiful cities on the planet made me think about what an insane level of power, creativity and endurance humanity has
.
It's crazy what we are able to do and to build nowerdays. But it has always been like this ⏳
.
Prague is a really good example for that. A city full of thousands and thousands of details, wonderful buildings and historically important monuments, all built over a course of hundreds of years
.
And the required power, creativity and endurance the people needed is something that we all have within ourselfs 🔥
.
It's not only reservated for specific people or special human beings
.
Everyone has that in him/ herself ! 💪
.
It's just about recognizing these strenghts and letting them all out... 👊 and don't let anyone tell you any different!
.
I always say this (on my website as well) - travel is the best teacher. You just need to find the true values of it and adapt them to your everyday life 👌
.

  • What's the true value of home? 😍🍁
.
Pretty autumn views like this one from a nearby forest of my hometown Hamburg?
.
Maybe...
.
But not really. In my opinion it's something else
.
As much as I like travelling around, discovering new places, getting to know other cultures, meeting new people and seeing other types of wonderful landscapes, I just still never forget where I come from ⚓
.
Exploring the world as much as possible is great, but there is also a great value in appreciating your own Backround
.
The more I look around, the more I see young people like me, who want to escape  from their home countries, just to wander around for as long as possible with no real intent
.
I think that's a big mistake! ☝
.
When the travel bug gets me again, I never JUST travel around to say:" hey look, I left things behind and went on the next big journey. Isn't that awesome???"
.
It is in a way, but not to much to be honest
.
When I go somewhere I always try to learn something new from the journey itself, the people or the culture AND THEN take it back home with me and use for my future
.
This why HOME is so important... Because it's the base where it all starts and Without home there would be nothing to ultimately come back and adapt your new skills to
.
So always make sure to appreciate home and where you come from 👌💪

  • I can already say, that exploring Nacpan Beach was one of the most beautiful things I have done this year even though there are still 2 months left... 😉😍
.
It's always fascinating to me how fast beautiful places like this usually become mass tourism spots
.
Luckily Nacpan Beach is still quite undeveloped and therefore one of the prettiest and most pristine beaches in northern Palawan in my opinion
.
Hopefully it stays like this for a long, long time ⏳🙏
.
If you have never been, I highly recommend to make this one of your next travel goals 😄

  • I don't know about you but I absolutely LOVE adventures❗
.
You know why?
.
Because they push you, they are fun AND you LEARN something valuable from them every single time 👊
.
One of the greatest adventures I have done in my life so far was a road trip through the center of Vietnam with my motorcycle that I called "Foxy Roxy" (I know that's weird 😅)
.
When I did it, I did not know what to expect, but my goal was to have an awesome time
.
I found out pretty quickly that it's gonna be a hard challenge: many locals didn't really speak English, roads have been in bad constitution, I got lost a couple times, my motorbike broke down 2 times, I freezed my ass off in the mountains and much, much more
.
So why was this adventure great then?
.
Because I LEARNED that you have got to keep pushing even if you struggle hard. You always have to keep going. Never give up. Keep moving and don't ever stop 💪
.
That's what I did, which is why I ended up having an amazing time: I saw awesome landscapes, met the friendliest people, found lost temples and ultimately learned an important lesson for life
.
ALWAYS keep pushing towards you goals EVERY single day and never give up
.
I AM CURIOUS: What is your biggest travel lesson??? 😊

  • There is a quote that says "if traveling was free, you'd never see me again" and this quote fits my attitude a 100%❗
.
My ultimate goal is to become free one day, financially and personally, so that I can travel to awesome places like banaue in the Philippines whenever I want 😍
.
Just being free of boundaries and the 9 to 5 lifestyle
.
If I had the chance, I'd probably travel the whole planet 🌎
.
Who's with me on this??? 😀

  • One of the best sunsets I have ever seen was on Koh Lanta in Thailand 🌅
.
I just love a good sunset and I know I am not the only one... 😉
.
So TELL ME: where was your favourite sunset at? 🌎
.
P.s. I am going to London in 3 weeks. Anyone who has some tips on what to do?
