Life isn't always fun but travel is, or can be. Bringing the 'travelling mentality' back into your everyday life can be a way to lighten things up, get some much needed perspective. Being a travel genius is about revelling in the act of travel, opening up to it. Inspiration is always out there- all you have to do is let it in.

The key time is the first 48 hours of a travel experience. That's when you're wide open, learning all the time.
