Do hills, beaches, cities, towns and deserts excite you all the same? Or have you planned trips to all the countries around the world? If so, you have travel lust. Then, there are those who’ve been there and done it all and they say, travelling has a lot more to offer you than just fun and enjoyment. Here are a few things you learn when you travel…
Facing new challenges:
Most people go on a solo tour to probably challenge themselves. Everything—from not knowing the language to eating unfamiliar foods and even getting lost—can keep you on your toes and pull you out of your comfort zone. It also makes you realise that you can rise to the occasion and be independent.
Whether it is a trek on a mountain or a relaxing day at a shack near a beach, avid travellers vouch that they get a chance to get to know their own self better. Being in a new place can challenge everything you know about yourself.
Learning and relaxing:
Travelling gives you a great opportunity to soak up knowledge from other cultures, people and places. It enriches you to appreciate what they stand for. It teaches you a new skill or a two. Travel is a great way to learn. You can pick up new languages, try new and interesting foods, learn about other cultures and gain insight into new customs you’ve never seen or taken part in.
Imbibing life lessons:
It is impossible to return from a long trip and not learn anything. So, if you are thinking about going on a short or a long tour, you are doing the right thing. Pack your bags and plan your itinerary. When you come back and see your camera roll, you will know exactly what it means to live a life like a wanderer.
