If you have family long distance, visit them. Even if you don’t know them too well, make conversation, state you fancy a trip and if they offer a place to stay, you have one big reason to book that flight.
This is my current location. Seaforth is a suburb a little north of Sydney, in fact if you look to the horizon the city centre skyline is viewable. I feel very lucky to be able to land and have a place to stay so soon, it makes me want to visit everyone and anyone I am in contact with around the world and make the most of it. I will be here for a couple more days before finding my own accommodation.
If you have even the slightest urge to venture, do it. The slightest urge can result in the biggest regret over time if not acted upon and it is better to do it and not enjoy it than not go ahead and wonder what if.
Have a great day, I hope it involves making great plans!
