    10 Common Excuses That Stop You from Traveling & How to Overcome Them

    Before I started traveling, I was the queen of excuses. I made excuses to not travel.

When New Year’s Day rolled around, I would be sad because I realized that I didn’t make any of my travel dreams come true that past year.
