Can’t Make Time To Travel? Use These Occasions As Excuses To Travel

It’s so common to hear people say that they want to travel but just can’t find the time to travel with their jobs and other responsibilities keeping them busy. It’s true that the more time we have on our hands, the more tasks turn up to keep us busy and occupied.

If you really want to travel, have a real passion for it, but are stuck in the loop of your daily routine life, then here are some occasions and events you can turn into a road trip or reasons to travel. The key to being able to travel while you’re busy with your jobs and families, is to make travel plans on any occasion that you can find.

1. Annual Events
Annual events like birthdays, anniversaries etc. can easily be celebrated by taking a road trip or flying down to some new place. You can do this for the birthdays of all members of your family. It doesn’t have to be a long trip, driving down to a camping site will do the trick as well. The aim is to replace the celebratory drinks and dinner on birthdays and anniversaries with a trip to some new place. If you celebrate each of your annual events with a travel plan, you could be travelling to so many new places each year. Tick a new place off of your travel bucket list by taking a trip on your birthday every year.

2. Travel With Your Team
If you’re in a position where you can make and influence decisions of your team at work, then try to take your team out for short trips. Travelling is one of the best team building activities you can gift your team. It will also give your team an opportunity to travel and bond with the team members in an informal environment. They will get to know each other better and return to work with a more refreshed and rejuvenated mind.

3. Bachelor or Bachelorette Parties
Also known as stag or hen do, bachelor parties are the perfect excuse to get that road trip with your friends finally in action. Travelling to a new destination for a whole weekend is one of the most popular ideas for a stag do or hen do. More and more people are travelling to popular and budget friendly stag and hen do destinations to celebrate their last few days of bachelorhood with their friends, while exploring a new place. Gone are the days of celebrating a stag or hen do with just one night of celebration. Grooms and brides are traveling with their friends to bond over a couple of days and chill with their friends before they tie the knot.

4. Festive Holidays
Make new traditions during the festive season and travel with your family each year to a new place. It will be really interesting to experience how other cities and countries celebrate festivals and it will also make for a great excuse to travel. You can also sync your travel plans with festivals of other countries, if you’re a culture vulture. Make plans to visit countries during their top festival season. This way you’ll be able to tour the country at its peak season, witnessing their festivities and also be able to get out of your mundane lives.

5. Personal Achievements
Reward yourself with a travel plan each time you achieve a milestone in your life. This could be anything from a promotion at work, to getting engaged, winning a lottery etc. Instead of rewarding yourself with shopping bags that max out your credit cards, book a flight to your favourite destination and reward yourself with travelling. There is no greater gift than the gift of travelling, making memories at new places and ticking off places from your travel bucket list.

To inculcate a travelling habit, you need to sync important events and moments in your life with travelling. Look at it this way, instead of splurging on the silk suit you always wanted, splurge on the destination you always wanted to go to. Once you’re bitten by the travel bug, you will find the dinner celebrations boring and will want to pack your bags each time there is a celebration.
