Why travel?

This weeks post is going to focus on travelling. Why to travel and the benefits of travelling. If you have already caught the travel bug you’ll be nodding your head in agreement with me and if not, go catch it!! I’m telling you it is probably definitely the only bug you’ll want to catch.

There are endless benefits to travelling one of which is just being able to see new places and experience different cultures and ways of life. Here’s just three of may reasons why travelling is a great idea.

One: meet new people. I know that whenever I go to a different country I meet at least one new person (most of the time it is a lot more). The people you meet are always so weird and wonderful, a lot of them will have great stories to tell and have really interesting insights. There are two types of people you will meet while travelling; the locals and the people who are also on their travels. The locals are great for getting an insight to the countries culture. They also know all the best spots for food, draaanks, sightseeing. Then there are the fellow travellers. These people are also great as they’re on the same page as you, looking to discover new things, new experiences and have a good time.

Two: Eye opening experiences. You will probably have eye opening experiences no matter where you travel just because you’re discovering the different culture and way of life. However, some countries provide more eye opening experiences than others. Personally, the biggest eye-opener for me was when I went to South-East Asia in particular Cambodia. Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in Asia with the majority of the population living on a just over a dollar a day which is why it was such a culture shock. Going to Cambodia made me aware of the extreme poverty some people live in and really made me appreciate how lucky I am to live in a developed country.

Three: An Adventure. No matter where you go, once you’re travelling it will always be an adventure and who doesn’t love an adventure? Travelling will always provide you with stories to tell, you will learn lifelong lessons and have one hell of an adventure.
