I want you to imagine a dot, about the size of this period. Now I want you to look around the room you’re in; relatively, that dot is you and the room is the world. However, unlike the room, you most likely haven’t explored all the nook and crannies as you should of the world. You don’t have to travel the whole world but traveling is a special experience that can inspire you to grow as a person and view the world differently.
You can experience traveling in a way that is special to you. Traveling alone allows you to learn more about yourself, but traveling in a group strengthens bonds. Traveling with a group of friends is a sure way to create fun stories to take back home.You can travel to another country and experience their culture or you can travel to another city and explore local attractions.Visiting a nearby city might not be the most exotic trip but it can be fun to learn a town’s history and see what they have to offer. Any way you travel is unique to you because it’s for you! Like every snowflake is different, so is every trip for each person.
I can guarantee that whatever trip you take, you will be inspired by the culture and the people that live there. Even going to different cities within one country is a unique experience. For example, different cities in Japan have different mascots! That is a fun little travel fact that isn’t even the tip of the travel-iceberg! People living even one city over experience life drastically different than you. In some cities, public transportation is more popular than individual cars or motorbikes. In other cities, the days and nights blur because the city never sleeps. Wherever you go you are bound to meet people who will leave a lasting impact on you.
Maybe going to populated places isn’t your thing, you can always go on personal trips through nature. You can see the beautiful, green mountain landscapes in Netherlands or the famous national parks in America. You can experience time away from big city noise and finally appreciate the nature around you. The night sky is so beautiful without the city lights to block it out. Maybe you can travel out into the country during an astronomical event and experience it in its full glory.
The world is such a beautiful, diverse place and you deserve to experience all it has to offer. You have to ask yourself if you’re happy with all the worldly experience you have right now. You have to ask yourself if that is enough. In reality, it is never enough, there is always more you should experience. You should experience the sights and sound of another country, as well as their food, culture, and people. When you travel you add a page to the book of your life which can change you as a person, often for the best.
So get out there, get out of your comfort zone, look around in the Pandora’s box that is this beautiful world!!!
