A Case of Traveler's BlockMonday, June 04, 2012Ryan Mach
I haven't traveled in more than a month now. Last trip I had was in my hometown where I embarked on a quest to know my own backyard better by exploring its uncharted territory. After that, I felt a bit empty and jaded. I also began to ask myself if the road is for me. The trip didn't in any way deflate me. Quite the contrary, I was inspired to share my little adventure. But I hit a roadblock, which now leaves me wondering whether I'll keep on wandering or steer away from the course.
Travelers are supposed to always love travel. They're always inspired to go to places unexplored. They hardly ever lose their passion to be on the road. I don't think seasoned globetrotters have experienced what I'm going through right now. Or maybe, they just don't want to admit that at one point in their lives, they couldn't find travel. Perhaps it's a normal phase that's easily overcome over time.
Is traveler's block normal? Did you go through the same phase? How did you overcome it?
