A Dutch proverb goes “He who is outside his door has the hardest part of his journey behind him.” Planning a trip and being on the road is a lot easier than you think. It’s the decision to take that step out the door that is the hardest part. It requires the most change. You’re leaving your old life behind for a new one. I know what it is like because I made the same decision when I started. You’re leaving your old life for a new one. Travel is a very rewarding experience and one shouldn’t let fear hold you back.
