As you may know, I have lived in various countries and four different continents.
For me, travel has been such an amazing eye-opening experience. I've learned so much about different cultures and traditions. I've made friends from different parts of the world, whom I consider family now.
Travel has been so enriching for me that, I think I would be a completely different person had I not ventured out into the world.
Here are some reasons I think travel is beneficial:
Traveling broadens your perspective and helps you to see things from another culture's point of view.
It takes you out of your comfort zone; even if you're going on a luxurious trip. You still have to leave your home.
Travel gives you the opportunity of expanding your linguistic skills -- learn a new language!
It helps reset your whole system because it is so easy to get into a rut and keep doing the same thing over and over.
You get to learn more about yourself when traveling. Especially if you have some time for quiet and meditation.
You get to make new friends and add them to your adopted family.
Travel may help improve your health because it distracts you from stressful situations at home and thus minimizes stress which equals to better health.
Not only is it good for body health, travel improves your brain's functioning -- making you somewhat smarter!
Travel is adventurous and adventure means, exploring and discovery! You get to add to your bucket list -- if you have one and also make memories that last a lifetime!
