The purpose of life is to live it, taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear. The world is a book and those who do not travel, probably read only one page.
Here is the list of reasons why you should pack your bags up and travel.
1. Traveling changes the way you see the world
If you don’t see this when you are younger, you have less desire to venture out when you are older and have job and family constraints in play. You also develop a deeper sense of obligation to save our planet’s beauty for the coming generations.
2. Travelling makes us realize and we learn who we are
Travelling with all the challenges it presents and opportunities, lets you discover your true inner self and makes you stronger in a way that only the road brings.
3. It humbles you enough to realize it’s not all about you
It changes your perspective to be more open to learning from other people and situations vs lecturing and bestowing your knowledge to those lucky enough. Traveling teaches you to let go of the perceived concept of control.
4. Traveling empowers you to take on new challenges
Traveling is humbling but it is also empowering. You realize you can do things you never thought possible.
5. Travelling helps us to pop out of our comfort zone
By being afraid to take up the risk, you never really discover your true self. How will you ever know what really makes you tick if you’ve never tried it? Travelling will push you into a flurry of situations like different lifestyles and culture or navigating your way to a place where no one understands your language.
6. Travelling helps you create meaningful relationships
People whom you meet while travelling very often becomes on of the people in your address book. These folks give you a glimpse outside a hometown circle of friends forcing you into new and perspective relationships.
7. Traveling widens your educational horizons
Travelling gives tangible memories which you remember much longer than anything you could study in school. You get to know a lot about different cities of the world and their lifestyle and culture across the globe.
8. Travelling helps you gain important perspectives
With nothing but your backpack of essentials you bounce into new cultures without access to usual facilities and material objects. You then realize the importance afterall.
9. Travelling teaches you to live an adventure
When you look back on your life, you will have moments of which you are proud and maybe a few you regret. Remember, never keep your dreams at stake. Let the adventure happen.
