Traveling is mostly seen as luxurious act and that’s one popular and consistent excuse most people give when the topic travel is raised or the word pops up in any conversation. But aside from the monetary aspect involve in traveling which is used as a cover up by many, there are other in-depth and personal reasons why people simply kick against traveling such as fear of the unknown, and the fear of leaving home.

Yet, traveling is a sweet thing. It is an opportunity to visit new places, learn new cultures, meet people and learn new things. Most people consider just seeing the world as their major reason for traveling around the world. This is a great and noble reason all by itself, but there is much more to traveling around the world than just seeing it. Traveling has a positive impact on people; it refreshes and strengthens the mind.

If you’re still not convinced to take a trip, we’ve put together a list of the top seven reasons to travel.

Changes your Perception about life

Traveling around the world is insightful and enlightening. It gives you with new perspectives about life. It is so easy to forget that there is an entire world out there just waiting to be discovered and taking a trip is one way to open your eyes to the wonders of life. Meeting people and learning how things are done in other part of the world is sure to make you have a rethink. The way of life and culture of others would teach you that life is not always as you know and expect it to be. Whether you go over or halfway around the world, what you experience outside your daily routine will help you see that there is much more to life than the usual.

Takes you away from your troubles

There comes a time when life would become too stressful both at work and at home. Traveling is one great way to leave all your worries behind and just concentrate on the present and the goodness that comes with it. The stress of daily life is replaced with thoughts of where you want to see, what you want to do, what you will love to eat, if you want to party or just relax at the beach. You’ll be feeling totally refreshed and ready to take on the world after some extensive traveling. Most importantly, being away gives your brain a chance to revitalize and reboot in a way that just can’t happen as easily at home.

You will learn new habits and unlearn old habits.

The moment you decide to travel up until your departure, you begin to look forward to the trip and make plans of what to do, what to learn and what to change when you get back. Going round the world has a way of teaching one the other side you don’t know. Either behavior wise or cultural wise, you tend to see things from a different point of view as you experience and observe other people. You begin to try to make positive changes in your behaviors with no conscious effort. Without planning to do so, many people realized that they have developed a different personality during the trip.  Any new experience you have can only help you become a better person and enrich your life in myriad ways.

It’s a big world out there

There are over 195 official countries in the world giving travelers hundreds of choices of where to go, what to do, things to learn and how long to stay per time. Countries of the worldWhen traveling, you have hundreds of choices of where to go, how long to stay and what to do. You can go to a place for adventure, sports, culture, work or just total relaxation. You can even make it a combination of it all. It is a big world out there. Explore more than your own backyard.

You can’t get it all on the internet

It is true that the internet is the bridge to the world virtually. It connects the world together as a small village, giving everyone the opportunity to see and know places around the world right in the corner of their room or office. Yet, it is not just the about the knowing, it is all about experiencing different parts of the world. It is about going to different places, seeing and learning directly how things are done not learning from someone’s experience or story. As much as the internet is very useful in helping know places and what to expect from there, it cannot give the firsthand experience gotten if you were present. The most important lessons in life can never be expressed in black and white, but must be experienced.

Better Social Skills

When travelling the world, you are constantly in contact with different people from various countries. Whether they are locals or tourists, you will need them, and they will need you. Initially it may be very hard, but over time you will become better at talking to strangers and making new friends.

Appreciation of your environment upon return

No matter where you live and no matter how boring or uninspiring it might seem before you leave, you will discover things about it that you really appreciate once you’ve been away from it for a long time.



If you live in a small town where everyone knows each other it might seem like a real drag, but once you spend weeks and months shuttling between big cities where no one knows their neighbor or cares to know, it’s very likely that you’ll finally discover the charm of small town life. Or if you live in a big city and you are longing for the wide-open spaces of new destinations, you’ll slowly begin to forgive the madness of city life when you realize that it also comes along with the ability to get nearly anything at just about any hour of the day


Traveling brings in enormous excitement when you plan vacations to hit other lands. The idea is enough to send chill through the body. Vacations are super necessary for your body and mind. Why, sit at home all through your life when you should be packing your bags, plan trips around the world and begin enjoying the new places, people, traditions, food, lifestyles and what people do around the globe. Make the most of it now, life is worth enjoying and the world is worth experiencing.
