Travelling helps to open your mind and make you a better-rounded global citizen. Travelling is actually something everyone should b able to do atleast once in their lives. Try to spend either a few years or just a couple of months to see this wonderful planet. It’s important to know what’s out there. Being exposed to new places, people and cultures, you’ll develop a wider world view.

Travelling makes you smarter. It helps you learn about yourself. You might run into challenging situations where you need to be resourceful and think differently. I’m sure that you will develop a new set of skills that you didn’t suspect you had within you. People travelling always develop empathy and a deeper understanding of other cultures. Being more understanding and tolerant about a culture different than ours is part of being smarter, but consider it as a benefits of travelling in itself.

There is a quote by Saint Augustine, which goes “The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page”. Could think in this way: if you read what’s in the news or watch the news on TV and don’t question it, you’re missing on a ton of information. You might think that it makes you smarter and more aware of the world, but it’s opposite: it narrows your mind to a unique and perspective. You probably feel comfortable where are you, but that is just a fraction of the world! Dare travelling to regions and experience and understand their culture. You will change your mind and realize that everything is not so bad abroad.

Travelling allows you to try amazing food. Having local food in a new country is an entirely new experience. Some change would be more than welcome in our daily diet. The benefit of travelling to a new place is that it forces you to face the unknown and think differently. Adventures require novelty, so get out of your comfort zone.

Travelling let you create lifetime memories. No matter how insignificant it may seem, the fact that you’ve had an experience abroad, something that was out of the ordinary, creates a memory that you will remember for a long time. I think that creating those memories is why many people keep travelling.

Travelling makes you to love your home even more. I know that I was getting bored after living my whole life in the same place. I needed to get out, I need a change of scene.

I hope that this travel points makes you to travel more in upcoming years. As you travel, you realize that the world is a much better place than what you see on TV when watching the news.

Travel doesn’t make you feel as bad for spending money and this is what i do feel about travelling. What's your opinion about it, please do comment below.
