Travelling, it’s a love and it is a hate. I despise that I have to be on point and have everything planned to a tee. I’m always torn when I have to be away from the ones I care about. I adore carefree, spur-of-the-moment road trips down the highway with music blaring with no where planned to go. Nothing is more amazing than when you are on a plane, though. I crave to travel for unique experiences and new societies and unexpected lessons. I love the story behind everything that is done and why things are done. I want to comprehend why, and maybe that is why I fell in love with humanities. I had the chance to understand cultures and people and ideas and thoughts. On top of all that, I enjoy finding all the small ’hidden gems’ in a city. Whether that be food, coffee, or parks. I adore so much about travelling, I decided to elaborate on each of my favourite things about travelling!

I met a man once, and he was telling me all about my horoscope. He was explaining to me that an Aries has to be put in new situations because we need to be challenged. When he said that to me, it all clicked. I crave to see the world. I have to be forced into a different setting to push myself. I knew this before I encountered him, but it added to everything I wanted to do. For me, travelling makes me happy. Travelling for me always feels like beginning a new chapter; however, it is only the beginning. I can physically put distance between me and my problems and they are literally kilometres away. Since they are so far, it gives me more opportunity to figure out what I would need out of my situation back home. 

Travelling creates hope and passion for me. It brings me back to life from the dead, which is an amazing feeling when you have the chance. I do more work in an airport than I do anywhere else, and maybe that is why I like travelling because it is just that, new. I’m going to visit somewhere unfamiliar to me.

Part of my happiness comes from being in a strange country, or an unusual city. Everywhere you stay, is different. When I visit Toronto the first thing, I take note of is the number of people and vehicles. I notice the buildings and the cultural diversity compared to the small town I live in. In my hometown almost everyone is Caucasian; so I always acknowledge the cultural difference anywhere, I go. Personally, I love it! It means I get to try new food, learn new etiquette, and have new experiences. This also leads to finding concealed cafés and restaurants, and boutiques, which I call “hidden gems.” These hidden gems usually are in small towns or they are in a location people do not know about.

Every time you travel anywhere you discover something new, and someone you would have never met before. It’s one of the multiple perks. You can do so many things; like new experiences, new museums, new beaches, new designs, and new art. Everything is new no matter where you go! Religion influences on craft and styles. It also affects the food, and the way homes are laid out. It’s all different, and personally, it’s one of my favourites (as I have mentioned before).

For me, the history of anywhere is vital. You cannot appreciate any building or society without a tale of how it came to be. The story is what made a country what it is. If Henry VIII never ruled England, England would likely still be Catholic. That could have greatly affected the world if that had not happened. London Tower would not be nearly as popular as it is now. If you did not know that bit of London Tower’s tale, you’ve missed out the true value of London Tower! If you learn the story of anything before going anywhere, you will appreciate it so much more! It is not only about the aesthetic of where you are (though sometimes, it is).

Personally, I crave knowledge. I desire to understand the unknown! I aspire to view everything. I want to distribute what I see, and what I’ve experienced. This is why Travelling Tyanna is my domain. It’s why I’ve created this blog! So please, subscribe, and share this post! You can find my Facebook page, my Instagram, and my twitter!

Thank you and welcome to Travelling Tyanna!
