Do you prefer traveling alone or traveling with your partner?
Ever since I was 18, I started the first trip traveling in Southwest of China, with knowing nothing at all. For the following years, I kept doing that all by myself. I tried Couchsurfing, hitchhiking, sleeping at the airport, sleeping on the street, all kinds of methods to save money for traveling more, gaining more experiences and more adventures. All those taught me how to make plans, how to use my advantages and how to climb up when I fell down physically and mentally.
Traveling alone is the best way to know new people and think about yourself.
For the last five years, I started to travel with friends, most of time traveling with my partner. I became more patient and more responsible. Traveling alone, you can only focus on yourself, which is easy. Making plans for two is not easy, no matter how much you both have in common, people are always different, which makes things get harder.
However, traveling with my partner gave me more laughter, and more moments of sharing with each other whenever you had an idea. Is it hard? Of course! But the moments or memories you both created would definitely make you both a better person.
I’m not saying which one is better, traveling alone or with your partner. But the most important thing is, which one can make you feel happy.

Sometimes overheating 🥵 is like hell for us, like, last year when I traveled through Egypt, the overheating in the black and white desert was dragging me down. I literally couldn’t go out and do anything outside, just lay down on the couch and enjoyed the fan and the noise. But, didn’t that leave me another kinda memory, of course, I have been remembering that for so long. After sunset, we were in the desert, camping and doing bbq with some wild desert foxes, staring at the stars, which was totally worth it! Ever since I thought about that, I felt like I was in a summer mood again.
That’s how I store my negative things in my mind, turning into a good memory. That’s how I remain passionate, that’s how I treat my life, and that’s how I face the upcoming unknown future.

It’s really hard to change someone’s mind, but you can accept and allow the existence of these people who could barely understand what suggestions you gave them.
They’ve been living their life in their comfort zone for years, why should they change?
Like, you said, you can give up some money and go for some vacation instead of sitting in the office, working. They said you are mental.
Like, you said you can save some money and sleep with some strangers in one dorm bearing their snoring. They said you are a psycho.
Also like, you said you can feel at home when you are traveling somewhere you are longing for, and you wanna open up more of your desires, to make them real. They said you are out of your head.
Sometimes, you have plenty of crazy thoughts, but you realize you have nowhere to share, you can only make them real by yourself.
Loneliness is the way to make things happen.
