Are you someone who always talks about travelling the world but never ends up actually doing it? Maybe the whole idea of planning a trip is too daunting, maybe you’re indecisive on where you want to go, maybe your budget is tight? Whatever the reason, we often convince ourselves that now isn’t the time to travel, but the secret is, there will never be a perfect time. So here’s 7 convincing reasons why you should just bite the bullet in 2017 and make it happen…
1.Travelling Will Challenge You
There is no doubt that being out of your comfort zone in another country means you are being challenged – this is good for you! We can learn a lot about ourselves, and others, whilst overseas. Meeting new people and trying new experiences allows us to mature in an unfamiliar environment.
2.Travelling Will Open Your Mind
Opening your eyes to new cultures and new experiences means you are open minded to lifestyle choices. This will allow you to think more about your own life and understand that there is more than one way to live.
3.Travelling Will Introduce You To Meaningful Relationships
Whether you’re travelling solo or in a group you’re certain to create new meaningful relationships and/or strengthen existing ones. Travelling will open your eyes to understanding the importance of relationships and how they make you feel. You will be able to determine which ones really matter to you and which ones have changed your life for the better.
4.Travelling Will Make You More Adventurous
Getting outside your comfort zone makes you realise just how much you have to learn and grow. We only live once, so make it as exciting and as adventurous as you can! What better way to learn, grow and feel alive.
5.Travelling Helps You Move Forward
Travel helps you move forward. Whether in- between jobs, relationships or homes, travelling is the perfect time to reflect on where you have been and where you want to go.
6.Travelling Gives You Perspective
When you see how those less-fortunate live or when you learn the history of a war-torn country, you will appreciate home. The rose-coloured glasses come off, your problems will become irrelevant and less important. The result? You learn to live in the moment.
7.Travelling Educates You
You’ll learn something new everyday; about yourself, about your friends, about your relationships, about other people in general. From new cultures to new traditions. Every trip is one great big lesson.
