Even though he's been known to travel through time and space in his science and ground breaking works, even Albert Einstein sure knew how important travel was. In preparation for the 60th anniversary of his death, Saturday April 18, Yahoo writer, Julie Loffredi, compiled a list of how Einstein would have planned for a trip if he was alive today.
How the genius would have planned for a trip today
Even though he's been known to travel through time and space in his science and ground breaking works, even Albert Einstein sure knew how important travel was
1. Enjoy the journey.
One of Einstein’s most famous quotes reads “I love to travel, but hate to arrive.” So many of us look forward to the arrival at a destination with so much anticipation that we forget to enjoy the process of getting there.
Perhaps we don’t have to hate the arrival, but it is a reminder to savor the journey.
2. Make time for travel
Einstein knew that he needed to use travel to recharge his batteries and allow his mind to wander. He even skipped the Nobel Prize ceremonies to visit the Far East.
In the early days of his career, when money was tight, Einstein still made vacations a priority. It didn’t have to be extravagant. A small lakeside cottage worked out just fine.
3. Book a modest vacation rental
4. Get outside
Einstein famously said, “look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better.”
Activities always found a way into Einstein’s travel itinerary. Simple hikes in the woods with his kids, a classical concert, or just hanging out with a drink and violin (which he played brilliantly). Einstein always carved out time to enjoy the outdoors and music.
