A ship in harbor is safe, but that is not what ships are built for !

Sometimes we might feel like we’re stuck in a rut in our daily life or we’re yearning for something exciting and different or maybe we’re craving new experiences and new challenges – travel is the ideal place to test ourself. It pushes people to their limits and gets them outside their comfort zone.

We can discover how resourceful we are when we’re exposed to new places, people and experiences. We’ll feel pride when we finish our trip successfully. Overcoming challenges will bring us joy and energy for future tests. We’ll realize how capable we are and build our confidence.

Learning is for sure also a strong reason why people love to travel.  They all want to experience something unfamiliar and leave with new skills or knowledge. Seeing the world is sometimes more educational than a high school or college class. It can cover subjects like history, geography and sociology.

Every destination has something unique to teach visitors, and immersing themselves in a completely different world is the best learning experience. People may travel to learn something specific: a new language, a new cuisine, aspects of a different culture, or a deeper appreciation of faith or spirituality. As a bonus, they’ll take away more than their specific goal. They’ll discover totally different ways of doing things. They’ll also gain awareness of new customs, cultures, people and places.

Travel helps open our mind. We realize that there’s no one way to live life. Meeting people from other places will show us that our world view isn’t the same as everyone else’s. We can’t imagine how different life is in another place until we see for ourself. Everything from work to family to beliefs to interests is not what we might expect from our own experience. The different setting will also help us discover and consider fresh ideas we hadn’t thought of before. We’ll come home with different notions and possibilities.

Traveling is one of the best ways to learn more about ourself. Every day traveling brings a new set of issues and opportunities. The way we handle those also gives us insight into who we are. We’ll start knowing ourself better and with a fresh perspective on what we want out of life. The experience will change our life. Also, when we’re mired in our daily life, it’s easy to lose sight of what we have. Our eyes aren’t open to what’s really special about our home. Exploring another place will give us a fresh appreciation for our hometown, country and “real life.” We’ll feel lucky to live where we do. Maybe we’ll see that there really is no place like home.

More than anything else travel is an ideal opportunity for families to connect with each other – it’s building and strengthening any kind of relationships. The shared experience of travel brings people together. A family getaway, a romantic trip, or long weekend with the girls or guys can strengthen important bonds. 

Couples, too, need to bond with each other away from home and work demands. Sharing travel experiences can ignite fresh sparks that last long after the couple returns home.

After all, travel is a special way to deepen friendships as well. With co-workers or with our high school gang, travel will remind us why we  became friends with them in the first place, and how good it is to spend focused time together. But it’s a great opportunity to make new friends – either fellow travelers or locals. Meeting and befriending new people is a valuable travel benefit. And once we’ve bonded, new possibilities for future travel unfold – either to visit them or journey with them. A journey is best measured in friends, rather than miles!

There are many other reasons why travel is important. For example, a trip is the perfect time to do something different and exciting, especially something we can’t do at home. The thrill starts the minute we land in a new place. Also travel can be a great relief from the stress. Travel is particularly helpful for workaholics who have trouble leaving their job behind. Stepping away from the workplace is good for us both mentally and physically. When we return to the job, we’ll have had the space to look at issues with fresh eyes.

Travel has the power to heal. A relaxing setting and good weather are common ingredients for a trip focused on relaxation. A restful vacation is just what we all need to renew ourself. Just relax and be present in the moment. Let sensations like the lapping water and the warmth of the sun, along with the sound of waves, recharge batteries. Travel helps our mind and body reboot in a way we can’t achieve at home.

after all…

Once a year dear LLET friend, go someplace you’ve never been before … Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do … Always remember that investment in travel is an investment in yourself !!!
