Why you should Travel

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!!!

  1. This article is beautiful. Travelling is indeed a great way to learn about ourselves, people, places and culture. It has allowed me to become more diverse and accepting of all kinds of people. It’s something scary, but if your dreams don’t scare you they are not big enough.


  2. So well said! My best friend’s daughter is taking a gap year before she starts college and is going to travel across Europe. I can’t help but think how different the world might be if everyone was required to do on such an adventure. Once it’s a part of your spirit, the sense of wanderlust never leaves you and I have to believe, we’re better because of it. x

  3. Love the dot analogy with which you started the post. We are just like a dot and there is a whole world out there to be explored! Completely agree with your statement – “traveling is a special experience that can inspire you to grow as a person and view the world differently.” We have been traveling for over 20 years now and with each new travel experience, we see things differently.

  4. All your articles are way too good. And I agree with why we should travel. I also travel alot but I can’t write down or believe in noting down my experience.


  5. Travel is such an amazing opportunity! We grow and learn from travel – both about others and ourselves. And you’re right even the same trip is different for each person taking it. Enjoy!


  6. I agree totally with you why travel is so important. The world is full of wonders sometimes beautiful and sometimes not so much. But we learn a lot from all experiences and diverse cultures. Traveling teaches us cultural adjustment and broadens our mindset. Thanks for sharing!


  7. I love your analogy about being a dot in the room. It made me think that we’re all a blip on the worldwide map, which is just one of the reasons we should travel. I think it’s important that we continue to emphasize how influential travel is and how it positively shapes our lives and future experiences. It’s just a bonus that it’s also fun learning about different cultures and places in the world!
