KEEPING FIT WHILE TRAVELING ///
As vagabonding is a lifestyle of world travel, it’s just as important to stay physically fit as it is in any other way of living.
In a “regular” life where the term “9 to 5” means something, the stationary positioning and predictable routine makes it easy to find a time and place to exercise. The active nature of vagabonding actually makes it potentially as easy, albeit erratic.
The operative word in “world travel” in this case is travel – to move from one place to another. Not necessarily by powered vehicles but by walking, swimming, running and jumping as a necessity of such frequent travel.
For the more adventurous and physical traveler, the mere act of being is enough to stay at a level physique.
I myself am a very active traveler but still like to maintain peak physical condition while not letting it take over or hinder my vagabonding lifestyle.
100 – 200 pushups every other day and 300 – 500 crunches between days.
-morning or night
Run at least a mile in a single set or the equivalent in biking or other sports.
Hiking, climbing, diving, kayaking – anything available within my current location.
My exercise routine is basic but effective. It gives me time to enjoy the world as I travel it and the freedom of a flexible schedule to do what I want, when I want.
When you’re traveling the world and want to keep fit, you don’t need to have a specific exercise program.
Just do what vagabonding is suppose to be about; explore and be adventurous, get dirty and sweat, say “yes” more often and try new new things.
Just. Be. Active.
