Travelling off the beaten path doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to go out there in search of an island that nobody has ever heard of before. It’s simply choosing to explore beautiful places that usually don’t get as much hype as Paris and the likes.
Also, it’s very important to choose destinations not because they are popular, but because they have the kind of environment you’ve always wanted to be in.
Like if I was given the opportunity to visit either London or Cappadocia, I’d choose the latter because of how much I adore nature! 🙂
Here are a couple of reasons why you should consider travelling off the beaten path:
1. Less crowded.
Nobody likes crowds.
2. Way cheaper.
Mostly if it’s within your region.
3. Authentic experience.
These places have very few expats living there and therefore the experience you get is quite raw. From the cuisines, to the interactions you’ll have with the locals and everything else in between.
4. Everything is fresher.
The air. The food. More like a little bit of heaven.
5. Feels more like home.
Off-the-beaten-path destinations are usually calmer, quieter, peaceful and more private than popular tourist spots.
Always be kind.
