Travel Burnout: I’m Sick Of Travelling

- It’s okay to feel that way. It’s perfectly normal. Breathe. Think.
- Tell someone. It really helped when I told my travelling friends/friends back home because they will give you the best words of advice! I was surprised to receive a lot of encouragements: instead of saying “come back here. We miss you,” my friends told me “Stay. You will learn more and enjoy life over there compared to here.” They will also mention that they’re jealous of your life and none of them can just ‘up and leave’ so that should give you a jumpstart.
- I know you might feel that you’ve already done everything in a particular country or continent but look for more! Maybe you didn’t take samba classes? Or passed on an outrageous gastronomic activity before? Think of something! There will always be an item that we didn’t tick.
- Write. If you’re not comfortable talking to someone about it because you think they will not support your long-term travel endeavour, talk to your notebook. It will help a lot.
