Time to get grooooovy! Ever wondered what it would be like to travel like a hippie? Check out the top five ways below.
Live Out Of Your Car
There is no better feeling than just packing your bags and hitting the road. Travel for the sake of travel and go where you want when you want. Don't have a planned itinerary, just plan it as you go and try and couch surf as much as possible.
The experience is incredibly freeing, especially if you are true to yourself!
Travel with Randoms
Travel with a bunch of people you just met or with a mixed group of friends. You learn about various cultures, not just the one you're travelling to, and hear about different stories and values from each of their motherlands. Who knows you're next destination could be inspired from one of these stories!
Travel for Yourself
Travelling like a hippie is mainly travelling to be YOU. You don't have to do drugs, wear colourful beads, put on alibaba pants or use words like "groovy" unless you want to. Travelling like a hippie is mainly rediscovering yourself, and mainly just being yourself.
Well maybe, a cute head band wouldn't hurt!
Become a Localite
Steep yourself in the local culture, get to know the locals well and make new friends. Understand their lifestyle and live it for a few days. Be it their clothing, music, food or anything else. The place will definitely seem a lot more interesting and your travel a lot more fulfilling.
Have a peaceful nature, not just towards yourself but the people around you and especially with nature and the environment. Become one with your surroundings.
Make love not war!
