Travelling is a surreal experience and something I’m sure is on most peoples bucket lists! No matter where we go, we can learn and understand different cultures and language! Here are ten reasons why you should travel!
1. New Experiences
Exploring the world often provides us with unique, exciting experiences we never thought we would see! From cultural to natural, we can find something new to explore that we never want to leave!
2. New Food and Drink
Exploring the world allows us to try unique cuisine and experience unique and tasty flavours from around the world!
3. New Perspectives
Travelling allows us to develop a new perspective and have an unbiased view of where we are travelling. Often the media will perpetuate a place as negative but if we actually travel and experience local tourism and adventures we may think differently!
4. Learn About Yourself
By travelling, we not only get to know more about the world and the stories of others, but we get to understand more about ourselves! We can see what our interests are, and we could apply this to our careers and hobbies!
5. Develop + Learn New Skills
When we travel, we can pick up new skills no matter where we go. Whether is climbing trees to navigating through a forest, each experience we gain a new skill we can grow!
6. New Language + Cultural Opportunity
Isn’t it cool to learn languages? Not only is this a great educational topic but exploring langauges really helps us connect with different communities around the world and help us build view of our global community.
7. New Challenges
Whether it’s zip lining in Costa Rica, or walking up Mount Everest, there is a new challenge for every thing we do, and when we travel we often have to take the risk, but the reward is even better.. (I mean the views are gorgeous when standing at the top of a mountain right?)
8. Allows Us To Help Others
Even if we aren’t taking a volunteer trip (which is a great way to help others, especially in rural communities), travelling can help us understand global issues that might not occur where we live and how we can work to solve them.
9. Awesome Stories To Tell
Who doesn’t love reflecting years after an awesome vacation and seeing all the wonderful memories you made? Travelling is an excellent story starter and the more we travel the more fascinating and unique stories we can share!
