My family recently are planning a trip to the UK.
It's gonna be expensive.
And it's been a huge headache lately.
We haven't planned.
But planning with my parents gives me a headache and it annoys me.
As for financially, it hurts me to watch a year of savings go down the drain for one trip.
This is why travel will not be a priority for now.
Don't get me wrong.
I do enjoy travelling.
Does it broaden my mind?
Yes it does.
But I don't like the idea of saving every penny and then spending it all on a few days.
Not my idea of fun.
If anything, it feels like a heartbreak.
This is why travel to me is a luxury for now.
I am not saying I don't want to travel.
I am saying I prioritise other things for now.
I want to be able to increase my earning power more first.
I want to focus on my career and other aspects of my life.
Because I want to be able to travel with ease.
I don't want to save each penny and spend it with caution at the back of my head.
I want to spend it like it's okay.
Because I can afford this.
Because my consumer surplus is higher than this.
But with a new airline route that was recently added in my country. It was to Honolulu which is in Hawaii.
This has ignited my travel bug.
Although I don't prioritise travelling, I do admit that occasionally, I want to travel.
Hawaii has always been somewhere I wanted to go because I heard that the beaches there are amazing. So yea.
But for now, thanks to this trip, I know that I won't be able to travel for sometime. Maybe a few years.
So to ease my travel bug, I am gonna make a list of places I wanna go, just to remind myself that one day, I will be afford to go to these places with my eyes closed and my heart easy.
- Los Angeles
- Czech Republic
- Japan (Kyoto)
Yea, it's a short list.
I am someone who only go to places that I want to.
I don't claim to want to travel the world.
Because I don't.
I just want to go to places that I felt that my soul would be comfortable with.
Places that I think my soul is home to.
