Travel is the movement of people between distant geographical locations.
Some people love to travel, enjoy every moment of it while others take it as a burden.
Travelling could be a burden if you are unhealthy or face motion sickness or if you are travelling with toddlers or another major reason could be packing and unpacking.
Anyway, for me travelling is like a spark in dullness of this life.
I just love travelling. It gives me memories for life and makes me a story teller.
It refreshes each and every cell of my body, allows me to have a break from the daily routine and recharges me.
All I have done here is, enlisted a few benefits of travelling. Hope you find them beneficial as well.
# Gets You Real-life Education
Meeting different people from vast cultures and societies provides an education that is impossible to get in a traditional school, college or a university. There is no substitute for the real thing.
# It makes you more confident and independent
Travelling makes you more independent and confident. You realise that you can cope with a lot of unexpected situations. You realise that you can survive without all that help that is always available for you at home. You find out that you are much stronger and braver than you have expected.
# It teaches you about yourself
You can learn a lot about yourself through travelling. You can observe how you feel being far from your country. You find out how you feel about your homeland. You realise how you really feel about foreign people. You find out how much you know/do not know about the world. You test your language and social skills. You are not the same person after returning home.
# It makes you more tolerant
During travelling you meet people that are very different from you. If you travel enough, you will learn to accept and appreciate these differences. Traveling makes you more open and accepting.
# Helps You Have Fun
No matter how young or old you are, there is always a time when the child in you wants to have some fun. When you travel, you do not care what you do at all and you can just break free from the norm.
# Broadens Your Horizons
Travelling helps you connect with different people from different cultures. This gives you the opportunity to see issues and daily life challenges from a different angle.
# Helps You Get Original and Creative Thoughts
It is believed that if someone gets out of their comfort zone, the mind gets more creative. To develop new neural connections that trigger original and creative thoughts, you must explore new places and break out of your daily routine.
# Ensures Peace of Mind
We all have stress and tension in our lives. Traveling forces us to temporarily disconnect from our normal routine, helps us to appreciate the people and things we have around.
# Creates Memories for Lifetime
If you travel with friends and family members, traveling helps you build stronger bonds and make memories. You can also save memories of a lifetime by creating photo albums or sharing photos in social media.
