Traveling is not just about going to one place from another for sightseeing; it is about getting out of your comfort zone and exploring the world in all its glory. Strolling through the strange streets, taking in the culture of a faraway land and walking among people who don’t speak the same language as you, are some of the exquisite experiences travelling offers you. These are more than just experiences, these are the teachings that nothing else can teach you.
One of the most important things you learn while travelling is patience. Spending hours on a plane, hiking to reach the top of a hill, talking to someone who doesn’t understand your language teaches you how to be patient and adjust with your surroundings. Patience is a virtue that will come handy throughout your life and work.
We all have our own baggage of troubles and we like to think that our troubles are the biggest. Travelling frees you from your thinking and lets you know that your troubles are very small in comparison to this huge world. When you travel, you meet all kinds of people and after talking to them you will realize that all of your troubles are as small as your place in this world. And after facing practical problems while travelling, you will come back with a different perspective about your earlier problems at home.
Life is short
It may not seem like it right now, but life is short, really short. After escaping near-death experiences or watching others go through it, you will realize that our life is unpredictable and you never know when it may end. You will develop a newfound appreciation for life that will significantly improve the quality of life you live.
Expands your comfort zone
One thing you should know is that nothing wonderful happens in the confines of your comfort zone. Everything you have always desired or all the daydreams can come true if you move out of your comfort zone. Travelling offers you the chance to move out of your comfort zone and live a little. Always been afraid of hiking? Try it and when you will reach the top and see the spectacular view, you will understand what the fuss is about and you will definitely thank yourself later.
Every culture has its unique flavor
Don’t waste your time living the same life, eating the same food and dressing the same. Travelling gives you an amazing opportunity to explore the different cultures and experience them closely. No culture is better or worse, each has its own essence that can only be understood when you have a first-hand experience of it.
