Top 10 Reasons To Travel Right Now!

1. To Learn Something About Yourself

Travel is all about throwing yourself into the unknown and experiencing new things. When you’re faced with challenges like having to navigate foreign languages and transportation systems you learn more about yourself and what you’re capable of. This is especially true if you’re traveling solo, a truly empowering experience.

2. To Build Your Resume

You’re never too young or too old to build your resume. Travel helps you to enhance a variety of skills in a first-hand manner. While learning foreign languages enhances communication skills, being able to adjust to new situations helps you become more adaptable. Additionally, bargaining in markets helps with negotiation, trip planning enhances strategizing abilities and sorting out issues along the way makes you a better problem solver.

3. To Get Away And Disconnect

Angry bosses. Problems at home. Daily life stresses. Get away from everyday life and immerse yourself in a new place where your worries are far behind. To really enhance the experience, leave your electronics behind and truly disconnect. Remember, the more you disconnect the more you’ll truly be immersed in your destination.

4. Because Life Is Short And The World Is Huge

Life truly is short, so you need to make the most of it. Stop making your travel bucket list longer and actually start knocking some of the items off. The world is a big place, with many destinations to discover and experiences to have. Do you want your last thoughts on Earth to be about all the things you wanted to do, or all the things you did do?

5. To Learn Something New

Traveling is a great opportunity to try something you’ve never done who’re. Not only are you naturally in a more adventurous mindset, you’re also exposed to opportunities that you don’t have at home. Sample a new food, go mountain climbing, take part in a local festival or learn a cultural skill like tai chi or tango dancing. It’s a fun way to enrich your life while experiencing a new destination.

6. To Meet New People

When traveling, you have the opportunity to interact with locals and learn more about what life is really like for the people of the destination. Ask questions, make conversation and, if possible, hangout with locals in their favorite spots for a firsthand glimpse of community life.

7. To Experience A New Culture

Whether your travel to another country or domestically you’ll have the chance to experience a new culture. Dive in and learn as much as you can through food, classes, attractions, interactions and random experiences. It’s an easy way to become a more worldly, open-minded person, and can be a very eye-opening experience.

One of the best ways to experience a destination is through the local food. Travel allows you to break away from any diets restraints and sample exciting new dishes you’ve never tried, and maybe even never heard of. Asado in Argentina, cemitas in Mexico and pasta in Italy are just some of the mouth-watering culinary experiences to have around the world.

9. To Enrich Your Life

Everyone wants to improve their life, right? So what are you waiting for, this is one of the best reasons to travel right now! International travel enriches your life through all the reasons mentioned above, so why not give yourself that opportunity? Discover interesting new cultures, learn something new, experience new things and become a more well-rounded, fulfilled person in general.

10. Because The Time Is Now!

Stop making excuses on why you can’t travel. Work will always be stressful, there will always be things to do at home and you’ll never have as much money as you’d like, so stop worrying and realize these problems will be there whether you travel or not. In the meantime, you might as well see the world and leave the problems at home for awhile, right ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • The amount of people I’ve met (particularly on airplanes) who have said “I wish I’d started traveling at your age” is staggering. So glad we started young ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Jessie spot on buddy! I learned SO much about me and my potential by circling the globe. Diving into my fears freed me of my miserable comfort zone, and this is the specific point where I began discovering who I was and what I am capable of. Thanks for sharing ๐Ÿ™‚


    • As the old saying goes, “sometimes you have to lose yourself to find yourself” — the hard part is convincing people to overcome any fears and be willing to “lose themselves” in the first place ๐Ÿ˜‰
