If you’re going on a vacation, you might be thinking that you’re just going to be finding yourself in a certain place that everybody likes. You then take a lot of pictures, you post your pictures on Facebook, and you call it a day.
This is how most vacations play out. It really all boils down to finding yourself in a place that people can’t stop talking about and experiencing being there and then going back. Pretty straightforward.
It’s kind of like buying a product. You wake up one day and you’re saying “I want to eat some spam today.” So you go to the grocery store and you go to the canned meat section, pick out some spam, head back home, open the can, fry it in a pan, and enjoy it.
Pretty straightforward. Very basic journey from Point A to Point B. This is how most people travel.
And unfortunately, by treating your vacation like some sort of product, there’s a lot left to the imagination. There’s a lot left to be desired, actually. And it’s no surprise that, for the most part, people’s vacations are all too forgettable.
People don’t really have the right attitude when it comes to proper vacations. People tour, but they don’t travel.
Travel really means entertaining the fun side of your personality. Travel really means getting in touch with your sense of adventure and possibility.
This is how you reconnect with the inner you. This is how you remind yourself that you are truly alive. Travel does that to people.
But unfortunately, the typical tourist package simply just sells a particular geographic spot. It’s kind of like you’re paying to experience, in three dimensions, a postcard that you keep seeing. That’s all you’re doing.
So if you’re tired of having this type of vacation, do yourself a big favor and do something unusual. Spice it up a little bit. Mix it up. How? Invest in renting a Segway.
When you go to a vacation spot, look for a Segway vendor. You’d be surprised as to how this small decision can make an otherwise forgettable or routine vacation truly memorable.
It really all boils down to disrupting the kind of mental and emotional pattern you have developed over time regarding your vacations. Believe me, most Americans have developed this pattern.
They’re no longer interested in discovering something new that might lead them to greater and deeper discoveries regarding who they are as people. They’re not interested in any of that. Instead, they just focus on experiencing some sort of postcard.
By doing things that are a little bit out of the ordinary, you can go a long way in stepping up the overall quality of your vacation. You can definitely go a long way in experiencing your vacations on a more profound level. Riding a Segway can definitely do this.
