The thing with enjoying the great outdoors is seeing aspects of life that you do not normally see during your normal weekly activities. The familiar sea breezes, the smells of spring flowers, the winter winds, fantastic views from mountain tops and so much more.
I currently work 60 hours per week in the building maintenance game and don't have enough time to get out in my own garden regularly, let alone have a really good 4 week break in some exotic location like the west of Turkey looking at sandstone caves.
My wife and I have been to 30 countries between us and we will add to our list as our income increases in our respective Home Based Business'.
Having been to islands off the Malaysian coast, islands off the Mediterranean coast, scaled cliff tops in Turkey and been all around Australia, the travel bug rises in me vehemently as I write this article. Travelling is a most rewarding way to meet people, fellow travellers, locals, backpackers, nationals; you get to meet all sorts. Not only do you get to meet wonderful(and not so wonderful) people but travelling teaches you to think on your feet, literally and often laterally.
Sometimes purchasing items in a foreign land like bread, milk and soap can prove quite a challenge. But the memories, the brilliant times you have, enables one to become richer in soul as you use talents and develop a sense of humour you never knew you had. The great outdoors, indeed travel itself, lets you see things you would never have even thought existed. Fancy seeing cows roaming the streets in cities in India, elephants in the suburbs of Bangkok Thailand, rats on the London underground or a snake curled up under your bonnet in outback Australia.
In my experience, the people I have found to be the most interesting are those who have travelled, those who appreciate the great outdoors no matter what the weather or where they are.
Why don't you be adventurous and explore this great world we live in, see something different, experience those things you have only dreamed of; treat yourself and your family to the pleasure of meeting people in foreign lands, to the pleasure of seeing things you would only ever see on the TV or today on the Web.
Is it any wonder my wife and I have started Home Based Business' to substantially increase our income so we can win back time, not time lost because that is gone, but time in our future to enjoy 'Travelling in the Great Outdoors' with our children and alone when they grow up.
