benefits-traveling

Many people ponder what they should do for a vacation and I realized a lot of people don’t seem to share my views about traveling. I believe it’s very important to see the world and different cultures. It lets us open our minds to new things and we get to experience life in exiting different ways.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.

 

New experiences increase our resourcefulness by living situations you would never encounter at home, this is great experience for you when you come back to your routine. I have noticed that people who traveled a lot in life were ready to embrace change and have a natural ability of overcoming problems that others would frown upon.

When traveling with friends or family it creates memories for a lifetime. These memories will create a bond that nothing can erase no matter what happens with the friendship/relationship. It can also give a new perspective on the relationship and cement the bond forever. It also gives nice stories to tell people afterwards, you can create photo albums about your trips and when you feel nostalgic you can take an hour of your life and experience the trips again by looking at your pictures.

It’s never been this cheap to travel. With soaring oil prices the cheap travel era might be coming to an end. However there are still many budget airlines fighting for your dollar right now. With the internet and all the new technology, you can plan your trip exactly the way you want it. You can choose your budget, the duration of the trip and what you want to do. I suggest to read travel blogs and see what others are experiencing, you can save yourself a few hurdles by reading about their trip.

If you have some time off I suggest to take that trip and experience what life has to offer. Don’t wait or tell yourself there will be a better time to go. Take the risk, the opportunity and buy your plane ticket right now and leave. When you come back you won’t be sorry that you left, on the contrary you will be thinking of your next trip the second you come back from the airport.

Feel free to let me know how traveling helped you out, what new experiences you lived and how they helped you in your life.

  5. Great article. It is rather unfortunate that over the last ten years, the travel industry has had to handle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, along with the first ever real global recession. Through all of it the industry has really proven to be solid, resilient and also dynamic, locating new approaches to deal with adversity. There are always fresh problems and opportunity to which the market must just as before adapt and behave.

  11. Thanks for your article. Traveling to another country have numerous benefits, as far as am concerned, in this 21st century, it’s very crucial at least once in a year, if you can. The first time I traveled outside the country, I developed more in the followings; I gained more confidence in life, I was forced to release my faith to get things done in life, my thought were very deep to get solutions to my problem and finally I was fulfilled seen myself amongst different race doing great, accomplishing task.

  16. Childhood is (ideally) wonderful because every minute of every day offers new joys of discovery. Sadly, most people abandon the intuitive impulse to explore the big, wide world and allow themselves to trudge every day in the proverbial, ever-deepening and dismal rut. Travel enables us to maintain a journey of exploration, with no end to the joys of discovery — including continuing self-discovery. I’ve lived in 9 states and traveled to all 50; I’ve traveled to all the Canadian provinces; I’ve traveled to 15 other foreign countries on five continents and lived for a year in one of them. And I’m not finished: my wife and I are off to Iceland tomorrow! Without these experiences, I would be a much more narrow and ignorant person. As many have said, life is about the journey — there is no ultimate arrival. And, as Nike tell us, “Just do it!” (“Someday” never comes.)

    • Hi Larry,

      Thank you for your input…and yes, very good analogy as traveling is a way for adults to continue the process of discovery and learning new things, which is what makes us yearn for the days of childhood. Seeing more of the world certainly makes us more well rounded and open-minded. Have a fun trip to Iceland!

    Do you agree?

  19. Interesting page re value of travel. Thought readers might like to look at my blog relating to revisiting places visited 40 years ago. I get a lot of positive comments like after reading your blog ‘I’m tossing in this lousy job and going traveling’, ”you have changed my life’ etc.

    Safe traveling everyone hope to see you on the track.
