If you follow this blog then you will know how much I love to travel. I have been travelling around the world for the last 11 years and I hope to be doing it for decades to come!
Everyone loves to travel but unfortunately some people only get the chance to go for a week or two each year, I think that isn’t enough but I understand that family commitments may hold people back. You can of course travel the world with your family, I have met many families travelling around the world for a year and I think it is so beneficial for their kids, plus their family bond.
You should all check out Mudita Adventures and see what opportunities you have to travel in some amazing destinations – if you signed up for more than one you’d have a great year of travel. So what do I think travel is good for you? Here’s 3 reasons why:
You Meet New People
If you never leave your comfort zone you will always be hanging out with the same friends and the same type of people. When you travel you not only get to meet locals but also fellow travellers as well, I guarantee that you will have some of the most amazing conversations in hostel lobbies when you’re on the road. When you meet local people you get to learn more about different views of the world and see how people act.
Learn New Things
When you travel you will learn so many new things; culture, history, language, discipline and much more. If you’re Volunteering overseas I guarantee that you will learn so much! You really get an understanding about how locals live, their needs, you get to bond with people and also you see a side of life you would have no idea about. We’re very privileged so hit the road and learn more about the world!
Anyone who has been backpacking will tell you that they change. you leave home as one person and return as another. When you step outside your comfort zone you have to start taking more responsibility and making more decisions for yourself – both of these combine to help you grow as an individual. When you have to work out how to get from A to B, organise things with locals who can’t speak english, manage a budget and work out visa processes, you start to learn more about yourself and what you’re capable of.
