Mentally or physically, humans escape to other places.
They crave adventure, they seek the unknown, and they want to see new places, learn new things, enjoy new experiences and then return home to the familiar, the predictable, the secure, before taking off again on their travels.
Travelling is more than going somewhere. It is a psychological event. It requires motivation and imagination. It begins in childhood with faltering first steps and with imagination fired by the tales of “long, long ago in a faraway land’’.
You will be shocked to know that there are people who have never moved from the current location they are, they have never travel to the next city. But below are some reasons that will motivate you to travel.
There are basic things that we will always want to keep, do you know that when you travel, you learn different perspectives about different people and places?
There is nothing like traveling, it helps you see what you think is really just the way you do things because the way other people do things is totally different, it engages your mind to learn new perceptions and cultures.
From our families to our work to our food to our homes, humankind is alive with differences you cannot imagine- until you see them for yourself.
To see the world through new eyes
“We need sometimes to escape into open solitudes, into aimlessness, into the moral holiday of running some pure hazard, in order to sharpen the edge of life, to taste hardship, and to be compelled to work desperately for a moment at no matter what,” wrote philosopher George Santayana in “The Philosophy of Travel.”
To gain appreciation for what you have
There’s no place like home—but that’s so easy to forget. Leaving the comforts behind gives you a renewed appreciation for them when you return.
To get some distance from work
Africans have a reputation the world over for being unable to leave their jobs behind. But taking a step away from the job is good for your physical and mental health.
It’s good for your work, too— it gives you the space to see the big picture in a new way, and builds a stronger team by forcing you to delegate and let someone else have your back.
To settle grievances through shared experiences
There’s nothing like a glass of wine by the cruise-ship pool to open a discussion that helps you see another person’s side of things.
Family grudges and hurt feelings that rumble beneath the surface of the annual get-together dinner look different when you’re making memories and sharing pleasurable experiences—and seeing each other, literally, in a new light.
To get you out of your comfort zone
Whether you’re stuck in a rut or looking to gain a little independence, travelling can teach you things you never knew about yourself. Discover your resourcefulness while mingling with the locals.
Realize your capabilities while navigating your way through a foreign city. You’ll never learn more about yourself than when you travel.
To admire Mother Nature
Travel gives us the gift of seeing how small we really are in comparison to the beauty of Mother Nature.
From crystal blue waters to pink sands to lush greenery, the real world is full of colors and sounds, sights and sites, that no computer screen can duplicate.
To learn about other cultures
Every destination has its own unique history and style. A passionate local tour guide will immerse you in a world that’s completely different from the one in which you live.
To strengthen relationships
There’s something about the shared experience of travel that can bring people together. Family vacations, a trip with a significant other, or a girls’ weekend will build a lifelong bond.
We’re constantly checking in on our phones, living life through other’s status updates or posts.
Travelling allows you to disconnect from emails and social media. Sit back, relax, and take in the moment without the screen of your phone blocking the view.
It does not really matter the means you use to travel or the country or city you wish to go to, travelling should be part of life, even though many have their views when it comes to travelling.
Travel for the right reasons so you can enjoy your journey.
