Travelling has become one of the biggest trends of our time and I cannot resist joining the wagon. If you’re not already convinced, let me give you five reasons to go explore the world!
My number one reason to go travelling is to have that feeling. You know that feeling where you realise how beautiful our world is and you don’t want to take out your phone just yet because it might just ruin the moment you’re having?
Go travel for that feeling.
To gain more knowledge
While reading books gives you plenty of knowledge, travelling is a more proactive way of gaining that knowledge. You see new places, history, language, human existence, it all comes down to one experience.
I don’t know about you but put something new on my plate and it might just become my next fav food. When you go travelling you’re bound to come across a culture or city’s local foods that you won’t find in your home town. That is an adventure in itself
You’ll have a story to tell
No matter where the adventure takes you, you’ll have a story to tell and that will shape the person you are. You’ll grow and learn as you navigate a city’s subway system or learn how to use chopsticks.
It will make you more empathetic
In a world where people just can’t help but turn against each other, travelling the world and learning a thing or two without relying on the media might just help make you a better person.
