Travel On!

15 Oct

Travelling and exploring new places offers much more than just adventure and fun.  There are also immeasurable benefits that come along with the experience of travel.

Personal growth

If you venture out of your backyard with an open mind you allow yourself to experience different cultures and values.  Through this understanding comes a more developed sense of awareness, inner peace, and happiness.  Immersing yourself in a new culture cultivates compassion and understanding.

Variety is the spice of life

Travelling builds connections with people that can potentially lead to lifelong friendships and broadens your horizons – exposing you to new food, music, and art.  What could be better than that?

Adventures are closer than they appear

You don’t have to go far to experience the benefits of travel and exploration.  There are plenty of places close to home to explore.

These experiences combine to create a more well-rounded, happier you.

No excuses, get up and go!

I would love to hear how travel has enriched your life, feel free to share your stories in the comments section.

    Each of these reasons to travel certainly appeals to me; I like how you show that vacations can be about much more than generic sight-seeing, general relaxation, etc. The picture is a great fit with your sentiment. I’d like to see some personal anecdotes mixed in here to help drive each of these points home!

    I really like your blog overall, but this particular post drew in my attention the most. I love how you are using it to convince the idea of travel in general. You definitely have good insight and good reasoning to travel. I, myself, am an avid traveler (when I have the time and money). I think if you wrote a post on cheap vacation spots/deals/packages that would be really interesting for people like me who strive to save money, but love to travel!
