17 Signs You’re Becoming A Traveler & You Love It

Happiness lies in the space of novelty. As it lingers on the inception of a newly formed idea that can never go back to its older dimensions. Similarly, traveling in a wanderer’s life is the fulcrum of happiness. Those who vociferously learn to break the lexicon barriers and challenge the transience of life, which is the ultimate existential downer of all time, lives with a mammoth attempt to live a new life every day.

Tripoto has jotted down a list of signs that prove you’re becoming a traveler and why it is the most awesome and fresh thing that has happened to you.

  1. Very true!!
    More than 10 points in this list shows I’m becoming a true traveller :)
    I feel travelling and meeting people from different region and culture is the best way to learn new things.

    Thanks Tripoto for such an inspiring post :):)

  2. Not a single word is irrelevant..!!! Perfectly said… In fact my heart was pounding fast when I was reading this.. I am so surprised n startled to read this n was wondering like how can somebody write so perfectly n precisely what I feel all the time..

  3. I feel a point to add is – You stop being a tourist who has 5 listed famous places to see. You start loving to go to unexplored places or even discover them.

    Curiosity to see takes over the fear of the unknown.

  4. And you don’t look out for your native food while travelling, you in fact want authentic local food joints, where you can sit with the locals and eat.

  5. Exactly my thoughts! 12 points out of 17 points are so so so so true for me. :D :D Travel is a way of life now and I am loving it. :) :)

  6. All of them are true. Adding a few more that I feel applies to me and I know a lot more people will identity with those:
    18: you become fearless as a traveller
    19: you don’t need a guide to help u travel around a place
    20: Ur constantly low on money ;)
    21: u use public transport more in every city (wrt india and interiors)
    22: u live out of ur suitcase bcoz it’s too tiring to unpack n shelve things
    23:u can walk endlessly on a new unexplored road
    24:u learn to laugh at urself. ur not embarrassed when others laugh at you. I laugh at myself with others and I can afford to be stupid sometimes.
    25: u don’t judge people around you or feel the need to do so with
    the people u meet.
    26: u become humble, patient, and immensely tolerant.
    27: everyday is a new story and u want to document something from everyday. U feel the urge to write and write more…
    28: travelling instigated the poet in U.

    will put up more soon…

  7. All the points except the point 2 describes me. It’s really an inspiring list. The point 10 is something which I badly want like right now. :-) :-P

  8. You become adept at figuring out cheaper ways of travel by hopping through multiple destinations

    Yoy are able to estimate time perfectly from home/hotel, through checkins….and all other travel formalities

    Your bags always have small pouches of food as a backup for being stuck at a remote location

    You specificially hunt for places which shows the ethnicity of the location rather than touristy placea

  9. 29. You become a minimalist, as you learn to live and enjoy on whatever is available.
    30. You travel not for the destination, but just for the sake of it.
    31. Your friends consider you in for any plans they make. You are always up for it!
    32. Each time you calculate the last time you traveled, you feel suffocated and frustrated.
    Rest will soon follow..

  10. Its so true that we are changed by continuous travel.There are the obvious changes, but sometimes the deeper ones dont emerge for years. And of course it can become a highly addictive life experience

  11. I just wanna keep travelling…. Even though i dont keep travelling all the time. My mind always does that.. I remember myself as a child when i used to think only about taking the longest route bus that runs through our town . Travel has been there in me since i was a kid….Basically if one gets excited seeing a the name of a new place on any bus or train, that means you are a traveller..
