For the past month, I have been doing very little traveling. After traveling non-stop for several months in a dizzied pace, I wore myself thin when it came to travel. Now that I am rested and ready to travel again, I am faced with itchy travel feet that still aren’t moving. Most of us are not traveling constantly. We hit those lulls in motion, but find our minds occupied with getting out of town. However, there are a number of remedies to soothe those itchy feet until they pull a roadrunner and get out of town.
Read about travel: While it sounds simple, I often forget that even though I am not traveling currently, I can still mentally travel through others. Travel blogs are great for mental travel. A personal perspective is often used, putting the reader into a setting they are nowhere near yet their minds can touch.
Go somewhere in your town: Travelers have a way of forgetting that other travelers come to their cities and towns, looking for rich experiences. So can you. I often forget I live in Colorado, a state many would love to visit. By going somewhere in your own backyard for a weekend or even just visiting a museum or new restaurant you have never been to, the wandering mind tends to feel satisfied, even if only for a moment.
Pay a visit to your airport: This maybe an aspect to travel some loathe, but recently I have been shuttling family members to the airport on a weekly basis. Watching other travelers say hello and goodbye to loved ones instills that emotion of travel you often forget about when staying put for a while. After observing a few hellos and goodbyes or staring at the departure destination board, airports prove to be incredibly inspirational toward travel planning.
Meet up with other travelers in your area: In this day and age of tweet-ups and meet-ups, you can always find like-minded travelers right at home that are dying to talk travel. Sometimes family and friends can get sick of hearing about your past travels or future potential travel plans. Often by just getting the vocalization of travel out of your system, you may feel a sense of release. Talking travel to those that love travel can calm the itches in your travel feet.
Make travel plans: Even if you don’t think you can travel for a while, find a weekend, even if it is in the distant future, and book a ticket. Travelers with itchy feet can often feel they don’t have much to look forward to unless a trip is in the works. It can be easy to fall into everyday life and put travels on the back burner. Bite the bullet and book a ticket. You can thank me later.
