Finding yourself through travel: a way to change
Finding yourself through travel sounds epic! Traveling is, in fact, one of the best ways to learn about ourselves (more than you could imagine) and it is a unique adventure, an introspective experience, priceless, especially when we are going solo.
Countless young people have been attracted by movies like Into the wild (a true story), and no matter their destination, they just packed their bags and left in search of a revealing and challenging truth. So have you ever wondered why Chris Mc Candless has abandoned everything, moneys, parents, friends to finally discover that living in the wilderness is very hard and the “happiness is only real when shared”? The answer has nothing to do with risk, ambition, goals, answers and so on but with a true freedom, with a deep and strong need to prove ourselves, against our deepest fears, doubts and insecurities to get outside our comfort zone that keeps us safe from everything and everyone. To find yourself through travel you don’t need to plan a one year trip around the world but a different holiday in contact with new cultures, finding different people and a different lifestyle. And if you need to feel the ocean on your skin, live simply and see remotes places the ideal thing to do is a sailing trip with Sailsquare, visiting amazing places where the wind takes you. And it doesn’t matter if you’re alone “just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it’s hurts, you know what? It’s probably worth it”!.
Finding yourself through travel: a sailing adventure
So finding yourself through travel is very challenging, isn’t it? Do you are really aware of what you can learn, also about your dreams and your wildest fantasies? Yes, you are and you know that traveling is about to lose something to gain something else, to lose stress, false beliefs, old way to do things, to gain a new sense of freedom. And isn’t the open sea the perfect place to practice a great outdoor activity as the sailing that in uncertain times is one of the best ways to feel better about you? Sailing is both a physical and mental activity.
It will teach you to surf instead of stop the waves, and when the wind will change its direction and speed you’ll learn to appreciate the weather at another level and how to adapt to every climate condition to go slower and faster. If traveling has to do with the change this doesn’t come instantly, it is slow and progressive as to learn to sail, finding the right balance. Finding yourself during a sailing trip is to learn to let go and when times are tough, to face the things in new way and to interact with different people, exercising sometimes your patience as well as your compassion: and finally all this will stimulate our skills and problem solving. Therefore, what about a holiday in direct contact with the natural elements and the nature?
So be awake and ready, there are many other changes still to come and many other people like you in Sailsquare, so we will set our sails waiting for you.
