Why should we travel?
Traveling is a great education, teaches you social etiquette and gets you into the habit of exploring. You'll discover how resourceful you are when you're exposed to new places, people and experiences.
It enriches your life - elevates creativity while you are surrounded in different culture forcing you to think in different ways, refreshes your senses in a way no office stale-air ever can, conquers your fear confronting new challenges leaves you cherishing the experience for a long time, widens your perspective as you meet new people, makes you humble witnessing new experiences etc.
Reasons Why You Should Travel:
Travel satiates your yearning for something exciting, different and new experiences. The intimidation with new challenges pushes people to their limits and gets them outside their comfort zone. Overcoming challenges brings ultimate joy and energy for future tests.
Travel is like a crash course and more educational than a high school or college class. Awareness of new customs, cultures, new languages, new cuisines, people and places teaches you many life lessons that no textbook can do and it stays with you forever.
Broadens you perspective
Mingling with locals, befriending fellow travelers, talking to tour guides etc. develop a wider world view, making you a better-rounded global citizen.
Changes your life
You are generally so lost in nine-to-six work schedule that you don't find time to get in touch with yourself. Travel lets your mind wander and take stock of life. You’ll come home knowing yourself better, and with a fresh perspective on what you want out of life.
Opportunity to make new friends
Befriending new people either with fellow travelers or locals and sharing life experiences make you aware of many possibilities. Once you’ve bonded, many new opportunities and ideas can unfold.
Conquering fresh territory is exhilarating. From sightseeing to exploring local markets, you feel altogether in different terrain and return home with the best souvenir of all - a memory of your incredible adventure. Physical experiences like hiking, scuba diving, river rafting etc. give you a sense of accomplishment.
A break from our usual diets of all work and no play is just what you need to rejuvenate yourself. It helps provide with that much needed time for yourself and helps you relax.
