Fun and enjoyment.
This is the primary thing that travellers would want to feel- fun and enjoyment!
Yes, you can have fun while you are in your own place but there is more joy when you are in a different environment and when you see so many new beautiful things around you.
Make most of your trip by enjoying everything around you. This will certainly make you feel so good!
Break free from work.
When you travel, you have left the regular things you do every day in your place. It’s like you have untied the strings between you and your work. You have broken free from work which could somehow tire you and cause you stress.
Just imagine how great that would be! No paperwork, no clients to talk to, nothing stressful that are work-related.
Letting go of worries is good for your health. Travel is a good chance to disconnect from your regular life and to create a distance from family and friends which can also make you realize how valuable these people are.
Relaxation and renewed energy.
Another benefit of travelling is that it will also allow you to relax and recharge your energy.
It is a very effective way of removing stress. You will also have time to rest and sleep for longer hours since you would wake up not because of the alarm clock but because of your body clock.
With ample time to free your mind from all the work and regular activities you do in your place, you could recharge and be totally invigorated when you get back home.
New knowledge and learning.
While others are thinking that travel will only make them feel relaxed and would give them a great dose of fun, they are wrong. There is more to travel than that.
You can learn lots of new things. The mere sight of the environment would make you learn a lot about the place you have been.
You’ll also get to know their culture and practices. The more you go to places, the more knowledge you gain.
Widens your life perspective.
Exposing yourself to a new environment and doing a different routine will help you to open your mind. You will be able to see things differently since you are doing it differently.
You will have new insights; new view of life and you will even have an expanded perspective about yourself and the people around you.
You will realize that there is more to life than what you have just seen. Also, you will be able to see an entirely bigger picture of living with people in different lifestyles.
Embrace that and bring that insight with you wherever you will go.
Some people choose to travel in order to forget some unfortunate events in their lives.
Some may have lost a loved one, some may have broken relationships, some could have experienced a sad plight in business, some could have a serious illness and many others.
When you leave your home because you feel a thorn inside your heart, it is a good way to slowly remove that thorn.
Pain is something that does not merely occur in the heart but it resides more in the brain. The more you think of it, the more it hurts.
But when you travel, you will do a different routine, change habits, meet new people, set a different mood and achieve challenging activities that you don’t usually do. This will keep your mind busy and eventually, you will forget about all the pain you went through.
Adds new experiences and memories.
Travelling can no doubt give you new experiences that can make you a better person.
Positive things you learn from challenging and enjoyable activities could make good memories that you can treasure for a lifetime. Capture those memories through pictures.
Some even create their own scrapbooks or blogs to show their experiences and to take a glimpse of those fun memories every now and then.
Establish better relationships.
If you travel with your family and friends, you will be able to establish better relationships with them.
Doing fun things together to create new experiences will surely make good memories together. It can strengthen your bond and can even repair broken relationships.
Meet and know new people.
When you go to different places, you will meet new people. You can even make friends with them.
Knowing people from a new place is a good way of extending your network. It can also help you get to know better of the place you are in. The best way to know new cultures and practices is through the people who live in it.
Get to know yourself more.
While at home, you are occupied doing so many tasks that you no longer have time for yourself.
But when you travel, you could have an open mind and you will be able to see that you can do more than what you think you can. You can even see the different side of you which could be the better side of you.
When you get home, you will have a better work performance since you have seen your value. Meeting new people while travelling can also help you gain self-esteem and you will see that you are better than other people in some aspects. This brings back your self-trust.
Well, if you think travelling is merely spending money and taking a break from the regular things you do, you are definitely wrong!

10 big reasons: two thumbs up!
Thank you for this 10 big reasons to travel. Totally agree with you.
thanks for posting!
Travel has 100% widened my perspective, and so many more of these things!
Love to know that traveling had such a positive effect on you, too! 🙂
I couldn’t agree with this list more! Traveling really has helped me to shift my perspective on what’s important and re-prioritize my life.
That’s great to hear Flo! I’m glad you can relate to this! 🙂
Definitely agree with these. #6 rings particularly true with me. I fell apart following the death of my best friend when I was 18. Shortly afterwards I flew out to Siberia and discovered that I could live, and have fun, without her. Sometimes you need the distance from a situation and changing your physical location puts your mind in a totally different place too.
I’m sorry about loosing your best friend. I can’t just imagine the feeling. 🙁 I’m glad you were able to overcome it through traveling. It really does heal you. 🙂
I definitely agree with these! I think solo travel especially makes you know more about yourself and what you’re capable of!
So true! 🙂 I think it makes you more independent! 😀
Love this! I think one of my favorite reasons to travel is to be rejuvenated. When I take a long break from work, all of the worries and problems from before seem to just melt away!
I totally feel you! Sometimes a long weekend is just the perfect answer for those stressful week! 🙂
I absolutely loved reading! These are all so true and just a few of the many rewarding things about traveling 🙂
Thank you, Caitlin 🙂
Everyone has different reasons for traveling (or not traveling) – there are some good ones on this list.
Thank you, Leigh 🙂
Totally agree with everything here. Travel is the best education and in my opinion a great fix for a broken heart. why not meet new people, I’ve met incredible people. I left and started travelling with a broken heart and ended up meeting someone incredible. Great post
Wow! I’m glad you found someone great during your travels 😀
Life perspective is a major reason why we travel with our kids. We know too many people who have never left their “bubble” and don’t understand how anyone can think differently from themselves. We really want our kids to get a taste of other cultures and places to broaden their understanding of the world.
That’s such a great way to teach kids to have a wider perspective 🙂 Would love to do that too, soon! 🙂
I agree with all of these! Especially broadening your life perspective. From my personal experience, I’ve found that people who don’t travel as often usually have a closed mind whereas those who travel (usually) have more open minds.
Yes. I have also noticed that to people who travel less. 🙂
I fully agree with you. Travel enlightens you like nothing. I have made so many new friends while travelling. Great!
Thank you, Sonika! 🙂
