9 WAYS TRAVEL MAKES YOU THE BEST VERSION OF YOURSELF
Do you need reasons to justify your next adventure by realising how good for the soul and the world it will be? Here there are:
Travelling teaches you about different cultures, world history, customs and traditions, new languages, architecture, arts and music. The readings are replaced by amazing first-hand experiences.
IT HELPS YOU BECOME RESPONSIBLE
There’s some amazing personal growth that happens when you’re forced to fend for yourself and create your own happiness without the comforts of home, family and friends.
YOU MEET NEW PEOPLE
Getting out of your bubble means you’ll meet new people, and while you’re bound to meet some people who you’re not fond of, every new interaction you have is a learning experience.
IT TREATS YOUR TASTE BUDS
You can experience authentic foodie experiences when you travel. Tasting your way around the world is a completely life-changing and eye-opening experience.
IT GETS YOU MOVING
It will blow your mind how much you can actually walk in one day without even trying, and exploring a new place via bike or on foot beats treadmill sessions any day of the week.
IT INSPIRES US TO GIVE BACK
Travelling shows us how fortunate we are, and it’s not uncommon to come away from a trip wanting to do more for the local community or a community back home. It puts everything into perspective
IT MAKES YOU MORE INDEPENDENT
Travel teaches you a lot about who you are, what you like, and what your strengths and weaknesses are. If you’re indecisive, or a picky eater, you’re going to be tested, and you’ll either turtle-shell or flourish.
Religious or not, there’s something about a travel experience that changes you forever. It may be an Inca Trail trek or anything, else but you will feel a world-rocking moment that will help you define yourself.
IT HELPS YOU FOCUS LESS ON THINGS AND MORE ON EXPERIENCES
The more we travel, the more we see the actual value in getting away. When we’re old and grey, we’re going to be reminiscing about the things we’ve seen and done, not about that cute jacket we bought in 2012.
