6 Reasons Why We Want to See the World
Wanting to see
We love traveling and the world, as you may already know. But what are the main reasons for this boundless love? We give the 6 reasons why we want to see the world and why it might inspire you to do the same! These reasons cause us to make travel a priority in our lives.
1 Travel lets you escape
Travel lets you escape from your daily life. It’s a great way to break up your daily routine. People who are stuck in a rut need to travel. We ourselves are people who often need to travel as we have already tired of our little homeland, Belgium. We don’t like stuck routine and like to escape to an unknown world once in a while. This world opens up when you travel.
2 Travel brings culture
Travel makes it possible to learn about new cultures. We love to explore new cultures, especially if they are far from our own. The customs in certain countries can be so different from ours that it can cause culture shock for some. On the other hand, any new culture you discover, especially in the face of culture shock, will broaden your thinking. You learn to be more respectful of another’s culture and way of life.
3 Travel makes you independent
Travel takes you outside your comfort zone. And as you go outside your comfort zone, you will automatically become more independent. You learn to speak to new people in a foreign language, you go on adventures, you learn to take care of yourself. You grow up by traveling (alone) and you learn how to take care of yourself. These are important reasons why we love to travel. We learn to trust ourselves and increasingly create our own insights. So travel definitely makes us independent.
4 Travel creates new encounters
Travel takes you to places you could only dream of before. It also often takes you to places where you get to know other people. Addressing the locals is very important to us when traveling. This helps us practice our foreign languages better and often results in fun encounters and even friendships. Not only encounters with people, but also with certain places, do not leave you unmoved. Some countries or regions leave such a huge impression that the memory of them will forever put a smile on your face.
5 Travel makes you richer
Travel makes you richer through the experience. You “own” this experience and no one can take that away from you. The memory of your journey, makes you a richer person. But travel also makes you wiser. You learned about a country, at least if you made an effort to get outside your hotel, and you can learn a lot from that. Among other things, you will learn a tremendous amount in the social and cultural fields.
6 Travel makes you happy
Travel gives us an enormous sense of bliss. It’s hard to describe, but the intense feeling of happiness overwhelms us every time we discover a new country. It’s not just the tranquility of a vacation that makes us feel happier while traveling. But also discovering a new country or a new region make us intensely happy. It’s like stepping into a new world, away from our daily routine. A world we don’t know yet, a more beautiful world. Travel makes us happy. Do you actually need more reasons to travel?
