5 Important Reasons to Consider Travelling

Travelling is a wonderful activity that lets you see the world and its wonders, lets you meet people from a different part of the world with a different culture from yours and see the world from another perspective. It provides one with fun and usually unforgettable experiences.

However, despite these things, there are people who still don’t enjoy travelling, not because of lack of money, they just have a general hatred or disliking towards the thought of travel. This could spring from a bad travel experience, depression, anxiety, phobias, etc. whatever it is, I don’t blame you and I respect your decision.

However, it has been shown that travellers get to benefit from lots of good things and these good things are the important reasons why you, a non-traveller, should try to fight what is holding you back and explore the world.

  1. Learning

By travelling to a destination outside the one you are used to and have probably been used to since birth, you are significantly try to learn more about how the world works.

By seeing and following other people’s culture, you are learning something new while also teaching them what they don’t know about your own culture.

They say we learn everyday but by staying in the same area and seeing the same people every day, the possible things we can learn from them start to dwindle before reaching its end. Don’t wait for that to happen, travel to other parts and learn something new from a different set of people.

  1. Time With Self

By travelling, you get to spend a lot of ‘me’ time without people constantly interrupting. Travelling solo for a week would give you enough time to escape things and people that stress or frustrate you.

You also get to think freely without any disturbances as to what you want to achieve in life, the steps you have taken to achieve this goal and how close you are to it. You only get to do this unhindered when you are far away from the things and people you are used to.

  1. The Food

I don’t know about you but one of the first things I do when I visit a new location is to try out their local cuisines. Although I have been disappointed few times, I enjoy it most of the time.

Travelling allows you try something new other than the food you have been eating since birth. They (cuisines) might seem weird to you at first but with time, you will find yourself loving them and maybe even learn how to make some for when you return home.

  1. Gets You Out of Your Comfort Zone

Travelling pushes you to do things you wouldn’t do on a normal. You might go to a new destination and without Jason and Harry to talk with, you take a stroll, see a group of guys beat boxing, you decide to give it a try and just like that, you fell in love with beat boxing. Something you would have never done if you were back home all snuggled up on your bed chatting away.

  1. No Regrets

There are no regrets in travelling. You get to have cherish able memories of anywhere you go, bar any accidents. Also, you can always make money but memories on the other hand, not so much.


For these reasons, I myself would be on a plane to Italy (I love their food the most) right now but you are the one who needs convincing so get up, pack your backpacks, go experience something new, and join we travellers in benefitting from the tons of things we benefit from.
