There’s just something about traveling that makes people want to do it over and over again.
You see, traveling is not just about sighted places that you’ve only seen from films before. You also see traveling is not just about feeling things that you’ve only heard from strangers before. Travelling is about seeing all those places to go like no other as you acquire more about a place’s rich history. Travelling is also about experiencing all those things to do like never before as you learn more about a place’s lively values.
“Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.” – Anthony Bourdain
Let’s face it. Everyone loves to travel. Be it somewhere with a traditional yet also modern and with a summer-like ambience all day long or somewhere with a modern yet also traditional and with a winter-like atmosphere all year long such as The Himalayas in Tibet, travelling simply makes all the difference in some people’s lives – which especially goes for those who are usually stuck under the heat and tension of their work life, as well as for those who are usually lost under the pressure and strain of their home life.

Travel can be challenging in every aspect. Depending on what you like to do while you’re traveling, it always can be a self-discovering skill.
Leaving your comfort zone can sound like a petrifying experience, and most of us don’t really want to risk it. However, it’s when we leave our comfort zone that we learn the most and it is in adversity that we grow. It may be hard in the commencement but once you figure out that you are not alone in this world and you can connect to people around you, you will become a more confident and with time, more independent.
When you travel you become more liable to explore and socialize, especially with locals and other travelers. This way you can have contact with different people from various countries and get to know other cultures. All of this gives you a sense of existence and helps you understand your place in the universe, breaking ego-centrism and making you think more about others. Teaches you respect to others and other cultures, making you less self-centered.
Especially when you are trying something new in a different and strange environment, insecurity can be very challenging. We are unconfident to do things alone, to go places, to speak to people, to solve problems, to look for jobs and start a new job, of getting lost and ask for help. At long last, an uncountable list of obstacles. Traveling make you start taking most of these as a normal routine, you lose fears and you get used to things, learning with time how to start building confidence.
What we experience in our lives is what defines and shapes our way of thinking and living. The first time I heard this, it made so much sense and totally click to see the situation with different eyes. Travelling will provide you so many different experiences that will slowly modify and define you. Travel helps me to become more biological aware, less self-centered and to discover that are so many things available to do and feel in love with it.
For those who are usually stuck under the heat and tension of their work lives and those who just love to travel. Traveling more often will not just allow you to get your life back on track and in sync on how the universe truly conspires with everything around you to provide you a better life like never before but also allows you to rediscover everything around you and who you are as an individual.
This also especially goes for those who are usually lost over the pressure and strain of their home lives and those who just don’t love to travel.
