I’m sure you’ve heard the phrase – “Age is just a number!”. How many of us actually believe that age is nothing but a number? It doesn’t matter if you’re 26 or 62, you should travel often. Travel has no age because one needs to have the mental capacity and a want for travel in their hearts. A person’s age does not become a reason for not travelling.
The first thing that comes to your mind when you think about going somewhere is why you should travel. Everyone travels for a different reason-
- The most heard reason to travel is to break the monotony of life and escape from the dullness.
- Travelling is done to experience new places
- Sometimes people travel to learn about new cultures
- One may also travel to ‘find oneself’
- To gain experience in things that are unusual
- Getting out of comfort zone
When you travel, you not only leave behind your residence, you also leave behind your day-to-day worries, boring routines and completely prepare yourself to break the dryness of your everyday life. Travelling for some is leisure, adventure packed days for some and just time to take an off for others. Travelling makes you grow, travelling lets you learn, travelling gives you that tingly feeling which you long. You are neither too old and nor too young to travel. Who says that travelling means taking a foreign trip every year? You don’t have to spend too much money on having a vacation in a different country to validate the fact that you have travelled. Going to the next city or even going around, discovering new places, new hidden spots in your own city can be classified as travelling.
You’ll get to communicate more and be more social when you travel. One thing about travelling is that it exposes you to so many different cultures. You’ll end up realising that despite language or cultural barriers, communication won’t be hard as people are very helpful, be it any part of the world. They might not speak your language but they will go out of the way to help you.
Other than gaining experience and learning new things, one of the major reasons for travelling can be food! Who does not love food? Every place has a distinct cuisine and only through travelling you can taste the authentic food specialities around the globe.
Travelling is all about learning and making yourselves open to new cultures. Who says that you’re too old to do that? You can be never too old or too young to learn something new. The more you travel, the more you’ll learn how to listen to your instincts and make decisions based on nothing but your gut feeling.
Take a few days off, keep your feet on ground and walk on; explore. The world is yours, so why not take and get to know what’s already yours.
The next time you feel like you want to rejuvenate yourself and see a change in the everyday setting, travel.
Travel a little more every time, live a little more every time because this is the only life you’re getting. Why not spend it in ways that can make your soul happy?
