Benefits of traveling
Traveling is not about going to places, it is about discovering the places that live within you. In other words, a lot of people try to use travel to escape from their daily routines. They go on vacations or take short breaks to recharge their batteries. But traveling can be deeper than that and this chapter shows you why you should travel more often.
Exercise: Setting up a step-by-step list to break free from the mindset of everyday life.
Objective: To think about traveling, as a form of education
The superhero has a goal
Where do you want to go?
It all starts with a plan to achieve a clear goal. This chapter is about you seizing your opportunities and helping you to decide what destination and type of adventure you are seeking.
Adventure doesn’t always mean going far away: You can begin any journey by taking advantage of the opportunities around you. Once again, it is not how far you go, it is about changing your perspective and making the best of what you have.
Exercise: Writing a clear plan with a definite goal.
Objective: To create travel opportunities around you.
The superhero believes in time
How long do you want to travel for?
The Olympic athlete John Zimmerman said, “When in doubt, take more time.” This principle applies especially to traveling (and eating mangos). For everything else, I believe that the “less is more” approach is a much better one. Committing a certain amount of time to discover the ways of travelling is very important. This chapter will show you how to make that desire a priority in your life.
Exercise: Refining the plan and setting a deadline
Objective: To take action towards your travel commitment

Sleep like a superhero
Another big issue is finding a place to sleep. For many people, this is definitely one of their biggest worries. Accommodations can be expensive. Very expensive. But if you are smart, flexible, and happy to adapt to different situations, this doesn’t have to be the case. In fact, finding an accommodation can be fun, exciting and very, very cheap.
Together, we will discover all of the available options and how to take advantage of each of them. Expanding your boundaries here can also be one of the most rewarding parts of any trip.
