Writer Susan Sontag once said, “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.”
Many of us dream of traveling all around the world to cities near and far. There is something deeply satisfying about getting on a plane and immersing ourselves in new lands, taking in all the sites, the food, and the culture that these foreign places have to offer.
As exciting as it is to travel to faraway places and explore new cultures, it can be just as thrilling to travel within your own city.
Too often, we get so caught up in the stress of our everyday lives that we forget to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us at home. On top of that, because our daily lives are so full of chaos, we equate taking a vacation with getting away from our home cities.
But think about how stressful it is to have to get to the airport two hours early, go through the hassle of security, be on a plane for hours, and potentially deal with jetlag. At the end of the day, you’ll likely be exhausted.
You don’t have to deal with any of that when you stay at home. And think about how fun it is to discover parts of your city outside of your normal commute that you may not have otherwise paid attention to. It’s amazing how many New Yorkers have never been to Times Square or how many Parisians have never been to the Louvre. And aside from the typical tourist spots, you might find other hidden gems that you may not have known even existed.
