Ever since I can remember, I have always enjoyed travelling.
Yet, as long as I can recall, I have always experienced nervousness for a few days before my departure. When I was a child and even in my twenties, I used to feel positively nauseous during the last few hours before setting off. Nowadays, I still feel anxious a few days before leaving on a trip, but I no longer have that sensation of nausea.
The cause of my anxiety is probably a mixture of concern that all will go according to plan and excitement at the prospect of travelling and new experiences.
Whatever the reason for my pre-travel ‘neurosis’, the problem evaporates once I set off on my travels.
Am I alone in this needless worry before departure, or do others feel the same way?
