Travel is extraordinary, it has the power to change your life. Travel gives you numerous memories that get etched in your hearts forever. And yes, it also gives you life lessons that stay with you forever. Here are some valuable lessons you get only from travelling:
To Interact With Strangers
You may be an introvert or simply too scared of talking to people, but when you are travelling, you will have to interact with strangers or your co-travellers at some point or the other. Honestly, people aren't that scary and this you get to realize only when you get to interact with people. Slowly, you gain confidence and further you are able to share a bond with your fellow travellers. It also opens up doors of new friendships for you.
To Try Things Out Of The Box
When you step out of your house to travel, you simply flow away from your comfort zone. You no longer have the comfort of your bed, home cooked food or other things that make you feel cozy. Travel brings along a lot of excitement. It may make you try out something that you have never done before. While travelling, you don't have the option of sticking up to your regular pattern. It makes you try a new adventure, new food items, new language or even a new sleeping pattern in order to survive.
To Live Each Moment
Each day, we have a new desire to fulfill. As humans, we are never satisfied all heart. We are constantly looking for something or other, thinking it would help us lead a happier life. Sadly, the truth is that it is all fake. Life is in every moment we live, simply enjoying what we have and finding happiness in every moment. Travel teaches you how to cherish each moment of your life. Away from the comfort of your home, when you get used to living the way travel allows you to, you start living with it happily and enjoy it.
To Be Responsible
When travelling, especially solo, you stay more alert to your environment, your budget, your personal stuff. You know that you will be the only one responsible if anything goes wrong while travelling. Even if you are travelling with your friends or family, you keep a check on everything so as to ensure that you travel safely. While all other things in life may not bring you that amount of responsibility, travel does!
To value small things
When you are in your zone, you slowly stop valuing things that you have. Travel teaches you the value of every single thing that you take along. Say, if we talk of currency, you get to know the value of each penny when you travel outside India. You spend carefully, following a budget. Or say, food, you understand the value of home cooked food when you don't find anything on the go.
