Hey, my fellow wanderers!
Have you been thinking about Surprise! Trips lately and how much fun it would be? If not, that is OK too. It is definitely not for everyone. But how do you know if you would like it or not? Here are some traits that we think are great to have in order to enjoy the unknown.
1..Can you give up control just for a long weekend? There are some people on this earth who think this is the worst thing that could happen to them, and they would not be a good fit for us. We love busy people who make a million decisions and just need to give their mind a rest while we fill in the blanks. Have you ever suffered decision fatigue? If you have, then you know exactly what I am talking about. Some days the thought of trying to figure out what we are going to eat for dinner is just too much because we have already had a LONG DAY making a million little decisions. One vacation where you don’t need to decide all the details would be like a dream come true for you. And so exhilarating!
2. Do you enjoy surprises? Most of us love a surprise every now and then especially when they are pleasant and not like a surprise bill that is due right now or surprise visit from a family member you are not crazy about. Surprise! Trips give you something to look forward to as in, you know you are leaving town, just not sure where yet. And you won’t be flying by the seat of your pants only because we give you just enough information so you won’t be caught without. And we always say, if you forget something or just didn’t bring it, buy it. Just buy it!
3. Do you like to explore new places? We think exploring new places really slows time and helps you savor life. Do you ever feel like days, weeks, months pass really quickly? They do when you do the same things every day. Get up, go to work, come home, start over the next day. When you see and experience new things, time really does slow down as you savor the new locations, foods, people, and culture. If you are one of those people who can’t believe its almost 2019 or how fast this month flew by, then Surprise! Trips are right up your alley.
No one ever says, remember last Tuesday when you went to work? NO! We don’t. But I remember when I went to the coast with a couple of friends for St. Patrick’s Day weekend and we all wore costumes and went to the local parade. In fact, we will remember that for years to come.
4. Are adventures important to you? You don’t need to go far for an adventure- in fact, you can find them in your own town if you are willing to look. But if you want to do something epic and really memorable that you will recall for your entire life, it’s great to get outside of your element and maybe even comfort zone. Pick your favorite people to have an adventure with because let's face it, not everyone is cut out for exploring the unknown. You will have stories to tell your grandchildren.
5. What are you waiting for? When the laundry is calling your name and your To-Do list is a mile long, the fun you love to have is easy to put off. We are all busy but make certain things a priority. It behooves you to make your bucket list Surprise! Trip a priority also. Pick a long weekend 3-6 months from now and MAKE IT HAPPEN. Be one of those people!
Oh, the stories you are going to collect! And talk about and share forever...
