While traveling with group of people, sometime you go to some specific place which you don’t like. You like to discover the places with your own terms and conditions. You like to travel like a free bird. Sticking with itinerary means limiting your freedom of traveling. But as a travel guy you always try to avoid these circumstances

How does a lion feel in cage? Is the same condition applies to you ? You feel fresh in open places like mountains, forests, hills etc.
It was one of my dreams as a child, growing up in my little village with my cousins. We used to walk together, and I used to say, when you look at the world map, ‘This town is there, that town is there, that river is there.’ I used to say, ‘One day, I’m going to travel these places.’ — Jimmy Cliff
I hope above mentioned signs are enough to make you convince that you are a free bird, no cage can catch you. Don’t be a traveler at heart, start taking action about your traveling dreams. 20’s and 30’s is the best time to travel in life, you have to manage your time, after this age group our body becomes weak plus we would be having a lots of responsibilities about children, wife, family etc.
If you don’t Travel Now, then you would die like a ‘Frog living his whole life in Well’.
