Hello friends, welcome to my blog. As you all know this year has been a travelling year for me. From Dubai to Dallas to Florida etc , it has been an amazing travelling experience so far. Visiting these amazing cities exposed me to a whole lot of things, and now I am more determined to visit more cities in the world. Travelling now means the world to me, it’s given me so much, so many lessons about life. It’s helped me gain an open mind and a better understanding of my place in the world . Travelling in what ever means you do it, totally rocks. Travelling has changed my life for the better and here are some of the way travelling can change your life.
- Experience New Cultures
Appreciating and experiencing the way other people live helps you gain a better understanding of what it means to be human. While people live their lives uniquely all over the world, there’s a common thread of compassion and love through every culture. You can learn new methods of communication and find new ways to bond with people. I remember when I visited Dubai, I got to experience their culture and hospitality first hand. I learnt a lot about their way of life and heard several stories.
- You Become Less Concerned With Material Things
The more you broaden your horizons with travel, the better you can understand what makes a life rich, people and experiences. The value of your possessions can take a back seat to learning and experiencing what the world has to offer. Nothing beats memories, so I go to a new city I try not to be bothered about all my materials things, instead I enjoy every single minute I spend in that city. I listen to music, watch the sun set, go on long walks , visit new restaurants and try out different cuisines etc. Travel has given me this perspective and my happiness thanks me for it
- You Become More Spontaneous
Planning at the last minute, taking chances and going with the flow are all part of the fun when it comes to visiting somewhere new. You never know what unexpected thrill could be right around the corner. I remember when I was in Florida and my friend Foluke in Dallas asked if I wanted to come over, without thinking too much about it, I packed my bags and got on a plane and on that trip I met so many cool people and visited some breathtaking places. It was an uber thrilling experience. Maybe it was the spontaneity that made it so exciting! Either way, I’m so glad I took the chance. I can not wait to go back.
- You Gain Perspective
Sometimes it takes stepping outside your comfort zone and immersing yourself in a new culture to really understand what things in your own life mean the most to you. Travelling keeps you calibrated the diversity of life is a varied and wonderful thing and the better you understand that, the less you can get caught up on the small stuff. I love making new connections when I’m travelling, whether it be the taxi driver at the airport, or my seat partner on a plane, or the air hostess. I love to connect with everyone I meet. These people all have lives that are so unique and wherever people come from there’s always some happiness or goodness to be shared. It’s these connections that put life in perspective and are reminder than everyone has trials but to search for the positivity is the key for happiness itself.
- You Gain Experience
Putting yourself in unfamiliar surrounds can so often mean you’re challenged in ways you don’t expect and you’ll meet people you wouldn’t normally cross paths with. Authentic travel experiences can change who you are, they can give your strength and help you see the world in a new light.
My plan before I’m 30 is to visit 2 new or more countries every year. Travelling is totally life changing and i will advise you friend to book a trip today and experience life
