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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
