Once you’ve started, it can be difficult to stop. Traveling is like a drug. If you haven’t been able to see the entire world with your own eyes, it won’t ruin your life. But, from the moment you start your first journey, if you are a real travel addict, you’ll never be the same again. Deep down you’ll know that you will never ever be free of travel-induced wanderlust. Traveling is now part of you and, you know what? You gotta do what you gotta do 😉
Not sure if you just enjoy traveling once in awhile, or you’re a travel addict? Here’s five signs that will help you discover your travel addict tendencies, and if in fact you are one or not.

- Working To Fund Your Next Adventure.
It can occur that one day you find yourself saving your paychecks for a new experience abroad, not buying new clothes for several months and inviting your friends home instead of going out for a bite. It’s fine, you’re saving money for what’s more important to you. Not material things, but real trips that make you feel butterflies in your stomach.
- Constantly Dreaming of Your Next Trip.
You dream about traveling when asleep and when awake. You think about what to take in your backpack, who you should ask about a certain destination, and how to live with the anxiety until the moment you start this new unbelievable journey. You wonder where to stay and whether you should be vaccinated if you’re visiting a given city?

- Spending Hours Browsing Travel Blogs.
Instead of going out, chilling, reading a book or shopping with friends and having fun outdoors, you spend countless hours browsing travel websites and blogs your next adventure. Of course, it’s the most wonderful thing for you, and your very best plan, not a disease or something. You need to know about others who have travelled to your next destination, what the place looks like, what to take with you, what places you can’t miss, the most wonderful spots and so on. Suddenly your phone is loaded with travel apps: Booking and AirBNB for the right hotels and apartments, Turo for renting a car, LugLoc for tracking your luggage anytime and anywhere in case the airline misses it, and a couple of others for buying the cheapest flights and the list continues. You are what people call a master researcher
- Planning Your Next Trip While on Your Current Trip.
You can’t help that with a single step on new soil you’re already making plans for the next destination. Some will see this in the wrong way and will say that you are never living in the present or loving what you are doing. Let them think what they want to think. This is your passion, your hobby, sometimes even your job (lucky you!) and your thirst of getting to know new places, people from different points of the planet, diverse cultures and more needs to be satisfied. It’s your way of re-energizing.

- Every day brings a new destination idea.
Films make you want to travel. So do books and music. Whether it’s your best friend who tells you about his dream trip, or a stranger who has just got off a plane from a distant island, you are always thinking about the next stop ahead. Staying in one place for more than 3 months makes you anxious. With your magnificent ability to pack your bags in five minutes flat you consider almost any place as a must on your list.
Recognize yourself in any of these? Congrats, you’re an official travel addict. Enjoy the ride!
