People get all sort of excuses for not travelling:
. It’s too expensive;
. We have kids;
. I don’t know foreign languages;
. I don’t have time;
. I’m scared;
. It’s too complicated;
Well, most of the people just don’t want to travel, which is ok. Traveling is not compulsory.
For those who want to do it but seems to lack courage, you have two ways:
1) Just go and stop finding excuses. You’ll find it’s much easier that you think.
You have several options:
. Go to a travel agency and pick a package with tours and full support from the agency included;
. Buy an inter-rail train (or something similar) and get adventurous;
. Choose a destination, buy a ticket, book a hotel, get a map and just walk around.
2) Start slow.
First you spend a weekend in the town next to yours. Then go a little further inside your own country. Then get a train ticket and spend a week on the other side of the country. Then visit a city on the other side of the border. Then get into a plane and visit the capital of the neighbour country. And so on and so forth.
