Why Everyone Should Travel At least Once In A Life Time

We believe that traveling around the world shouldn’t be hard : it’s actually something everyone should be able to do at least once in their lives. Whether you choose to spend a few years or just a couple months traveling this beautiful planet, it’s important to see what’s out there. It’s up to you to make the dream come true and take the first step.

Travel gives you a sense of accomplishment

If you’re the kind of person that dreams big, you’re probably one to reach for new challenges. Finishing a trip gives you the satisfaction that you were able make a goal to travel and accomplish what you set out to do–see the world.

Traveling gives you perspective

Meeting people from other cultures will teach you that the way you’ve been looking at the world isn’t the way everybody else does. In fact, your point-of-view might have some major blind spots. Seeing the world for yourself will improve your vision and your grip on reality.

Travel helps you learn new languages

There’s something satisfying about being able to throw around a few words of Greek, knowing how to say thanks in Thai, pulling out that long dormant Spanish to book a room in Santiago, or simply hearing a language you didn’t know existed just a few weeks before.

Travel creates meaningful relationships

People you meet while on the road become some of the most valued names on your contact list. They become places on the map to visit later on. These folks give you a glimpse outside your hometown circle of friends, and force you to take in new and refreshing perspectives, and ultimately realize that everyone is the same.

You will own your experience for yourself.

No one can discover the world for you. You can read about other places, cultures, and people all you want, but you’re simply learning facts.
Truly experiencing life requires taking the ride yourself, firsthand. No one can live your life for you, and no else is to blame if you die unfulfilled.

You will learn to be more present.

The mind’s autopilot switches off when confronted with new situations and environments. The world comes into sharper focus when you have to pay attention.
Solo travel forces you to be aware and see the world around you, and not simply look at it passively.

You will find freedom.

Our culture attempts to define what is acceptable as a “normal” or “successful” life. Most people live the life they think is expected of them.

You will be inspired to live a story worth telling.
Most people settle for far too little adventure in their life, and they choose existing over truly living. But as Anna Quindlen says, “The life you’ve had doesn’t have to be the only life you have.”
Nothing can remind you that you’re part of a much larger story than going solo.
