TRAVEL  =  HAPPINESS

To some people—and to nearly all devoted readers of the Spot Cool Stuff travel blog—that equation is one of the immutable laws of the universe, as unbendingly true as E=MC2 or I think therefore I am. But for how long has that been true? And what exactly is it about taking a trip that makes us happy? And what can travelers do to prolong that happiness?

Some enterprising people have researched those exact questions. And then they put their findings in the form of an infographic. Among their findings:

• The single happiest moment of a trip is the initial arrival at the destination.

• Five to seven days into a trip people start actively thinking about their work and life at home.

• The length a a trip has no impact on the happiness it brings to your life.

    so true…having arrived at your destinations is the initial happiness you’d get.being safe and having loads of or reasonable amount of cash to spend are equally nice…the rest will be up to the traveler <3

    This is interesting, I can absolutely believe and relate to the pre-departure excitement. I am always so stoked planning my trip, usually it doesn’t work out as smoothly as I hoped. But still very relaxing and fun to get lost and feel free!
