15 Reasons To Travel

There are so many reasons to travel, I had a hard time picking just 15! Here are the ones I narrowed it down to:
  1. Eating new food! You know I had to put this one here. Even if you live in a megacity, go to the world’s cuisines instead of having them come to you.
  2. Challenging yourself. You’re afraid of heights? Zip lining in Costa Rica should cure that.
  3. Learning how to relax. A couple of weeks away will help even the most Type-A person chill out- I speak from experience here, folks.
  4. Learning how to plan: A useful, useful tool.
  5. Learning how to live in the moment. Put the camera and itinerary away, and enjoy where you are.
  6. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, you’ll appreciate home even more once you’ve had some time away from it.
  7. Expanding your viewpoints. Travel will open your eyes to ideas you’d never have heard of in your life.
  8. Restarting. If you travel for a while, you’ll return to a clean slate
  9. Rejuvenating. Travel is the most relaxing, rejuvenating, and stress relieving thing to me!
  10. You’ll make better small talk! Everyone loves a good travel story.
  11. Learning new things. Be it how to make Thai food, scuba dive, or play the violin, you’ll always learn new things in a new place.
  12. Shopping! Start collecting stuff from all over the world.
  13. You’ll learn how to make new friends- If you don’t play well with others (this is directed at me more than anyone else), meeting cool new people abroad will teach you how to make more friends at home.
  14. Make a new tradition- travel someplace every two months!
  15. You’ll never stop traveling, learning new things, and meeting new people once you take that first trip.
