*This is a collaborative post with Fat Joe Media please read our disclosures here*
Some people are just ready to settle and are never interested in what’s happening beyond their hometown. Others are born with itchy feet and need to see new places, meet new people, experience new things. If you are the latter, then you will likely have a difficulty trying to balance work commitments with your travel desires. A weekend away here, a day in California there, maybe the occasional week to somewhere more remote. It all adds up, but it never feels like enough. You don’t get enough time to explore before you need to head back home and into work on Monday morning. What if you didn’t have to head home though? What if you got yourself a job that allowed you to work from anywhere in the world? Is relocating the answer to wanderlust for you? The world would be your oyster. Many people use remote working to travel the world already. You could simply pack up a few essentials, and move to a different location. Stay a few months in a rented apartment, see the sights, and then simply move on to the next destination. Below are some good reasons why relocating to a new apartment in a new location could be the best way for you to travel as far and wide as you want.
Get to know your location
Even with a week-long vacation, it can feel like you’re just settling in and getting to know the area when it’s time to pack up and head home. By moving to your travel destination for a few months, you can get to know it like a local. You’ll know all the best restaurants, bars, and activities. Some places have so much to offer that you could live there for a year and still not have seen everything, so why limit yourself to a week to enjoy your holiday destinations?
Meet more people
One of the biggest joys of travelling is the people you get to meet. Sure, the sights and the activities are nice, but the people you bump into and meet are the real joy and memories of a trip. It could be one of the keepers at the zoo that gave a fantastic talk about the animals, or it could be the stranger you had a conversation with while waiting in line. You’ll never see them again, but you had an extremely interesting conversation with them for five minutes one day. You would be amazed how many interesting people you meet when you travel to a new place every few months. Simply stating that you’ve just moved to the area and want to know where is good to go will be a great conversation starter. You never know, you could meet the love of your life by starting a conversation this way.
Take your time
When you’re on vacation, there’s always a sense of urgency. You must see all the sights and do all the things before you go home. Sometimes you can come back from a vacation more tired than when you left home. When you’re staying in your holiday destination for as long as you like, there’s no reason to rush and cram everything into one week, meaning that you can enjoy everything the city has to offer at your own pace, making for a more enjoyable and memorable experience.
Hopefully, these reasons have got you already searching for moving companies in the area so that you can start your travels straight away. Just be sure to travel safely and never divulge your address to any strangers you might meet on your travels.
