I have seen many people who say that travelling is useless and you do it just to try to get away from all your problems. The truth is very different. Another reason behind this article is for those who want some inspiration to travel abroad. However we are also those who want to prove that travelling has other benefits than just relaxing and doing nothing!
1. You will end up being more social
If you are like me, then you have talked to many experts of this foreign village you are in (the locals). So now you can easily talk to new people whom you have never met before (and you will probably never see again if you are travelling) and even become friends with them.
2. Seeing things from a different perspective.
A lot of people love to see things from one side only. Thankfully, you are a traveler so you know that you should see anything from both sides. A traveler would learn to do this because you have spoken to many people and because of that you are more social and because of that you have heard many people give different opinions on different things. You have also learned that when you are in a difficult situation abroad, you know to look at the problem from both sides and now you know the best decision to take.
3. You will end up more adventurous
Let’s see: you have travelled the world, hiked all the way up to Mount Everest, dived into the unknown etc… How can you not be adventurous? I know these seem far-fetched, but I don’t think you have spent all your time on vacation doing nothing that scared you so much! Also, adventure is in our blood. It is our DNA. Don’t you feel the need to be adventurous? If not, you need to talk to Bear Grylls.
4. You will eventually turn up smarter
Yep, travelling the world fills you with (what is supposed to be) general knowledge. A better way to understand this is to imagine yourself talking to someone about a country that he/she visited but you didn’t. You know absolutely nothing what he/she is talking about. Then you visit the country. Wouldn’t you know more? Learning about something new is what I call being smart.
5. Enjoy life and do things you wouldn’t dream of doing in your country
With all the work you are doing at your job, it is sometimes forgotten that you actually need to enjoy life. To do this you would need to do things that you don’t usually do. The perfect way to do this is by visiting another country. The reason is very simple. If you mess up doing something, it does not matter. Besides, you will probably never see these people that saw you mess up, again.
