“Travel – to go on a trip or journey to somewhere new”
You feel fascinated, overwhelmed, excited, challenged and full of energy when you travel. Traveling is also therapeutic, it can heal your mind and soul.
Zeyana Musthafa says:
“Excitement, adventure, fun — traveling encapsulates these words. And traveling has always had this attractive, romantic aura surrounding it… and travel is just one way to satisfy your inquisitive mind.”
From an article published in the Daily Californian, written by Zeyana, here are a few of the reasons why we travel:
- To Escape
“You get to escape your same old mindset and scenery, and instead swap those repetitive, mundane routines for something new.”
- For the Stories
Traveling takes you briefly into the lives of those people you meet along the way. This offers you new outlooks and viewpoints. The stories of your journey are unforgettable and you love to share your beautiful experiences with your friends and family.
- To Explore
“It’s inevitable that traveling opens up a new world to you, whether that means meeting strangers or coming across a completely different culture.”
- For the Insight
If you’re open to new experiences, then travel is able to offer you many opportunities to expand your understanding and acceptance of very different cultures and lifestyles.
- To be with Friends or Families
The experiences you share with others while you’re away from home always seem much more memorable and exciting than the mundane things that happen at home.
Traveling makes us happy and is wonderful in so many ways.
Travelers can more deeply understand the culture of the country they’re visiting, sampling local food and experiencing another way of living.
