I think the biggest sense of freedom I've ever experienced on a journey was when I went on a Mediterranean cruise.   There was a day on the way to our first stop to Lisbon, where we could see nothing but water.  We were in the middle of this vast expanse and it felt like nothing from home, none of the worries or stresses of life could reach me there.  Helped that I had not mobile phone reception!

Salinas Grandes in Argentina.   They were completely empty when we went, it was incredible.   I've never experienced such freedom before.

I am a big music fan, and not only have a large collection of albums and cds, but find it grows week on week. As a result I spend pretty much my entire journey to and from work with headphones in, and either an old friend warbling in my ears (way into work, too early otherwise) or something new, either a band I know, or a band I have come across in one of the many musical communities I frequent (that's for the way home, awake and able to concentrate!) Longer journeys can lend themselves to...

I love the sense of freedom as you travel home from work about to start a period of leave knowing that you don't have to make that journey for so many days. A break from the routine. It's even better if you then set off on a holiday journey and feel the stresses of work fall away as you travel further away from home and gain a sense of excitement at the adventures ahead.

Sometimes to cope with whatever stress I am facing, or any little niggle that's getting me down, I think about the Big Picture. So for some of the things to do with travel - my commute hasn't gone so well one day, or I have missed a connection, or I'm faced with road works we can either let these get us down, or we can think differently. The big picture can be thought about in 2 ways - one on most days our travel is fine, and is without hassle. Or secondly, when we read about some of...

I am indebted to Ironmaiden for her Beach Retreat post which resuscitated this wonderful memory from my ageing brain and inspired this post. It could just as easily have been included in the Journey Success challenge, had I remembered it! I live on an estuary where the river meets the sea. Messing about in boats is a way of life for many inhabitants. It's a fishing town so the sea dominates many lives. I'm going back many years now. My next door neighbour had a wooden rowing dinghy. And...

When I feel the stresses of life getting on top of me I love to escape to the sea. I love to look out to the open sea or walk along the beach. Its nice to listen to the sound of the waves, the birds in the sky and the distant sound of other people but not a lot else. That feeling of being alone or with those you love, a sense of escape. I can reflect and put things into perspective and gain that feeling of freedom. Of course its nicer to do this in a warm country but even in our colder...

The feeling of freedom gives you a sense of space, being able to relax and enjoy your journey. To take a deep breath and sigh with contentment that you are are on your way and hopefully leaving stresses and strains behind you. That feeling of freedom is threatened when the stresses and strains are only beginning on your journey and tension starts to rise. This can be exacerbated by being hemmed in on busy crowded transport with literally no room to breathe. An overbooked train, aisles...

Te feeling of freedom is when I can do what I want without anyone getting in my way.

The only times I feel freedom when travelling are when you don't have to be anywhere at a certain time. Even when going to visit my son and family 100 miles away, I know that it normally takes about 2 hours, so feel a certain amount of anxiety that we'll arrive within that time.
