With high fuel prices, will you still travel this year?

The fuel price surge is unstoppable. Will you postpone your planned trip this year or would you like to postpone it next year, should the fuel prices go down?

I have just returned Lithuania and Estonia. I flew by plane to Riga and then traveled around the region by bus and by train. Yes, airfares have increased and petrol is getting quite expensive. It is a shame that fuel prices are going so high but it won't stop me from traveling. Travel is my top hobby so I will always keep traveling. If it gets too pricey to fly I will travel by train, bus and ship. I don't believe in postponing a trip until next year because by that time fuel prices might be even more.

The economic situation is flexible! However, nowadays, the projection is consistently establishing higher prices not only in fuel but as well as basic commodities. Hence, I would not off-limit myself into travelling because it is simply saying that i am also stopping the joy that brings me when i am seeing new perspective views of each country and along with meeting new people. While i am young, i do the best i can to enjoy because in fact this is just part of the fruit of my labour. Please enjoy the present, don't worry for tomorrow because God is there with us!
