5 good reasons to travel: what is yours?


Have you ever wondered why you travel? The reasons why people love to travel are varied. Take a look at these five reasons, and see which ones ring true for you.


A trip out of your comfort zone and into a place you do not know is a learning experience. A crash course in learning how the world outside your daily life functions. And if you are traveling abroad, this learning widens. You get to know a new language, relish a new cuisine, discern different aspects of their faith or spirituality. 

Discovering yourself

When you travel, you discover more about you than when you are at home. There is time for introspection, appreciation for things that you otherwise take for granted and a change in your perspectives. 

Having an adventure

An adventure need not necessarily translate to climbing a mountain or going on a diving expedition. It can also mean something as simple as trying out street food in a city you are traveling to. 

Relaxing and rejuvenating

The home-work-buy groceries – cook routine will tire you out in time even if you enjoy it. So, travel. Try a 10-day meditation break or a relaxation treatment in one of the spas tucked away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It will improve your mood and outlook on life. 

An escape from the mundane

A demanding job that leads to a burnout, a bad break up – whatever be the issue, pack up your bag and travel.  Stepping away from things you see and feel every day is a perfect way to come back rejuvenated.
