Although you are living in a city and having an wonderful time out there with your family and kids still nothing can replace travelling.
For some people (including me) travelling is same as reading books. It gives you time to think, observe, and learn and exposes you to new things – culture, lifestyle, food, history. It also gives a lot of time to introspect and realize upon self and on how certain things are done across the world. It gives you a direction to your life and its journey and helps you in moving forward. You somewhat get a benchmark on life.
You breakout of your comfort shell and that’s where you grow as a person. It offers you live experiences which are far better for your growth instead of watching travel shows on the TV.
Here are some motives why you should pack your bags straight away and move out for a little adventure while you are young!
1. Reduces your stress
When you travel, you see new things which give your mind peace as you are away from the daily routine of your life. Even if you are on a business trip, the fact that you are in a entirely different city can take all the stress out.
2. Experience new cultures
Your change accordingly and start accepting the different cultures and people in the world which are equally enjoyable. You become accustomed to some of the things they do or some food that they eat. You even make new friends on your travel from a completely different culture. New friends, new people new cultures, they all leave a positive impact on your personality.
3. New cuisine
When you visit a new country or city, you are destined to try the local cuisine and food that you have never eaten before. My tip is when you are outside, forget watching your calorie count and eat as much as you like.
4.You will become more active
As most of us are pretty much established in our comfort zones. The problem is, you learn the most in uncomfortable, unfamiliar situations. I am sure you do not want to go out on a vacation and stay at the hotel all day(coz I am not that sort of person). It gives excellent time to learn how to confront your fears such as fear of height or fear of water. Give yourself and your fears a chance and try something new on your trip! As you conquer the obstacles of figuring out how to, you are building a confidence and ability to adapt in foreign situations.
5. Learn new languages
While travelling to new places, you will certainly pick up the local language. Going abroad is really the best way to learn a new language since you are forced to challenge and practice your skills on a daily basis.
The best I can say is to meet as many people on your travels as you can. It will definitely make your time more enjoyable since the locals know best! Plus you never know when these connections will come in handy in the future.
