10 Reasons To Travel

Memories
You'll create unforgettable memories. No one ever cherishes or 
remembers a trip to the dentist but swimming through a coral 
reef is something you will never forget. If you want memories 
that will last a lifetime then travelling can make it happen.


Food
Trying different cuisine. You're probably used to your
Saturday night takeaways, so trying different foods 
around the world will definitely excite your taste buds.  


 Finding Yourself 
Learning about yourself as well as the world. You'll find out
how strong you are as a person as you'll have responsibilities 
and be independent. You'll have to deal with being in situations 
you've never been in before. It will really test your strength 
and patience but will give you chance to find yourself.


Education
We all know that travel broadens the mind. (So they tell me)
Travelling teaches you long life skills that you wouldn't find
 in a classroom. The only way to learn about the world is to 
explore it. A book, a video, a movie: can only tell you so much.
 You've got to get out there and see things for yourself. 


Living Life Spontaneously 
Everyday is different. It sucks being in routine, so 
going to sleep not knowing what the next day could 
bring is a totally exciting way to live, in my opinion. 


Adventure
As human beings we crave adrenaline and excitement, which is 
something that is hard to find in our everyday routine. 
Travelling gives us the opportunity to find adventure. Meeting 
new people, trying new foods or even jumping out of a plane
 (with a parachute!) these sorts of activities release endorphin's 
which help to make us feel good and better about ourselves. 


The Places You've Dreamed About
Visiting the places you've seen in the movies. All those
 places you've heard and read about. It will really put in to 
perspective how magical and beautiful this world is. If you've
got a dream destination, stop making excuses and go. 


Friendships
 One of the greatest feelings in life is being surrounded 
by people who bring out the best in you. On your travels 
you will have the opportunity to meet new people 
who could end up becoming life long friends. 


Different Perspective
Meeting people from different cultures will teach you that the 
way you look at life, isn't necessarily the same as others look at
 it. All those times you wished 'you had thicker hair' or that 'your 
legs could be smaller', seeing people in different/harder 
circumstances who appreciate so little, will make you 
forever grateful of what you have.


Freedom
The feeling of freedom. The ability to be a good person
while doing what makes us happy. What feels good to the
 soul. How, in my opinion, every human being should live
 their life. Not feeling dread and regret as we wake up to
go to our jobs each morning which make us miserable.
