Often times we find ourselves drifting off into space contemplating if your spending your money the right way. Do you get caught up living vicariously through other peoples timelines on social media for ideas to add to your bucket list? It's not just you we've all been there and that's why we've come up with our 5 signs you've caught the travel bug list.
1. Spending money on material things isn't satisfying anymore
If buying the latest and greatest version on your favorite brand isn't doing it for you anymore, then you should consider spending your money on experiences, rather than material stuff. Memories made from traveling last a lifetime, the new Apple watch won't.
2. You've noticed yourself longingly looking at other people's travel pictures
Have you ever looked up at the clock and realized you've just spent two hours scrolling through your Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest feeds looking at other people's travel photos? If you've experienced falling into any one of these social media holes, then its time to play a trip and take some travel photos of your friends and family to wistfully gaze at.
3. Your bucket-list never seems to shrink because you always find something new to add
Your friends and family would describe you as well-traveled. You've climbed Machu Picchu, you've bungee jumped off of Kawarau Bridge in New Zealand, you've savored Margherita pizza in Italy and you've been on a safari in South Africa. You've crossed some pretty epic adventures off your bucket list, but somehow it keeps growing and you feel the urge to do more - so do it! If exploring everything the world has to offer brings a sense of fulfillment and joy to your life, then don't stop - there are an infinite amount of things to do and see in the world so start planning your next trip now!
4.You fear the 'Monday Blues'
Ugh, it's Monday, I better drag my feet out of bed and get to work. Sound familiar? If you're finding yourself in a constant state of 'ugh', 'blah' or 'meh,' then you definitely need to reevaluate your work-life balance and take a well-deserved break. Maybe you'll take a trip to Bali, Indonesia for some R&R, or find your inner peace while visiting the Taktsang Palphug Monastery in Bhutan. Where you choose to travel, rest assured that you wouldn't be experiencing any symptoms of the Monday blues because your Mondays would be filled with new experiences
