Nothing! Genuinely, there is no match to the priceless pleasure of travelling. Going through different places, meeting new people, glimpsing unique cultures, the tongue-twisting languages, and an irreplaceable story associated with each one of these. Travelling a new place is the most wonderful way you can treat your soul.
Go through what we have today for you. This would do much for you to change the orthodox way you had been living all these days and switch to a more joyous life.
1. YOUR CONVERSATIONS BECOME FULL OF STORIES.
There are so many of them in your mind, one each for a right conversation, for a right audience and for the right occasion. They are all real, part of your experiences and you needn’t revive it every day, they stay with you as a part of your memory. The first time you went for scuba-diving to see life beneath the sea, or of the only time in your life you tried mountaineering, or may be the longest road trip of your life. Oh god! Each of those would be so ravishing, time would fly but those stories would be yours for the rest of your life.
2. YOU ALWAYS RETURN HOME WITH LOTS OF NEW FRIENDS.
Yeah! That’s much like life, where strangers become your mates. You meet new people everywhere you travel and you end up placing them somewhere in your life. You would have probably the most diverse friend-circle than anybody else, people of different languages, of different age, of different philosophies and all of them for you to share a life with.
3. YOU REALISE THE WORLD IS A BIG PLACE.
Now that’s the one thing only travelling does. You may have heard and read about the entire globe but the worth of witnessing them before your eyes, it’s unmatchable! You could never realize what a wonder would you have missed until you go to that place or meet that person. And, you would feel pity for your acquaintances who chose the conventional route sitting before their worktable 9-5 everyday, living on an auto-pilot mode each day like the other.
4. DISTANCE ENHANCES THE LOVE FOR PEOPLE & THE PLACE YOU BELONG.
Doesn’t that become a win-win situation for you? I mean you are getting so much in this new place and besides your love for your own place, for your own people grow with the parting. Distance makes you appreciate the people who matter most in your life back home. Especially those you’ve taken for granted. Far away and alone, you’re reminded to make the most of every second with loved ones when you return.
5. YOU LEARN THAT HOW THINGS COULD BE SEEN THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
How often do you sit with your family or your friends to discuss ideologies and opinions? Come on! You always have something to talk other than these stuffs. But while in a distant land where you have almost no companion, you are bound to talk to people who are just unnamed species till before that moment. A brief gossip with a local while you stopped beside the road to have a home-grown cuisine, or a soulful conversation with the person adjacent to you in the bus, they all not only make the time pass well, quite often they end-up making you change your opinion too!
6. YOU GET CLOSER TO YOURSELF.
Time spent alone and unplugged forces you to really reflect on your life back home, your recent experiences on the road and the direction things are headed. Some of those thoughts aren’t always pleasant to deal with, but travellers know that even if solitude is a struggle at times, they’re stronger because of it.
7. YOU ARE FREE TO GO WITH WHAT PLEASES YOU, AND THERE IS NO STOPPING.
You can’t always go the way you wish or do whatever you want unless you have nobody to interfere with your business. Travellers get this amazing liberty in life. There is no need to compromise when travelling. No need to appease a friend’s unfortunate craving for an overpriced burger and fries, or their incessant complaints about mosquito bites in a jungle where you’re on travel cloud nine. As a wanderer you travel wherever you want, when and however you want to – all with a liberating degree of indulgence. There’s no stopping for you.
8. YOU LIVE A LIFE ENTIRELY ON YOUR OWN.
All days may not be the same. Some part of your wonder ride may be a little coarse, a difficulty which was neither thought of nor were you prepared for that most unlikely incident. But you know, there aren’t too many people here in this distant soil to come to your aid, you are here entirely on your own. That pushes you to face the situation boldly, and come out of it with flying colors. You carry these lessons for life-long with you. So, now you know that you don’t need too many co-sailors when the waves are getting higher ahead.
Pack your bags, the clock is ticking!
