If you really don’t know the reasons to travel, I’m going to share them with you.

Travel is one of the simplest joys of our world.

With just a little planning, we can enjoy amazing experiences that enrich our lives in so many ways.2

If you need some convincing reasons to travel, take my hand and come with me.

1. Pops Your Comfort Bubble

Traveling will definitely force you outside your comfort zone to a place where life begins.

You cannot grow in a bubble.

It’s only when you pop that bubble that you breathe new air, experience new energy, and soar to new heights.

This is just one of many reasons to travel.

Traveling to a place where you don’t know the language?

Pantomime is universal and usually results in laughter.

A little wary of new foods?

Give those fried insects a shot;

they probably taste like chicken.

Don’t know anyone in your new country?

It’s easy for a foreigner to make new friends.

You’re exotic, mysterious.

People will want to know you.

They’ll even want to show you off.

2. Builds up Adaptability

You may have an itinerary, you may be organized, but traveling teaches you that itineraries and organization are easily dismantled.

Another of the great reasons to travel is that it offers so many opportunities for spontaneity.

The best experiences in life are the ones unplanned for, the experiences unanticipated.

Live in the moment, and you will not regret it for a second.

Though travel may come with many bumps in the road, these bumps most often result in unforgettable experiences, which you’ll likely look back on and laugh about.

They’re also great fodder for travel stories.

3. A Helping Hand

Travelers are often warned about being targeted by pickpockets and thieves.

They are told to be wary, as foreigners attract petty crime.

But, something oft not told is that foreignness also attracts kindness.2

As an avid traveler myself, I can vouch that for as many times as a person tries to scam you because you’re foreign, help – true, human, good Samaritan help – is offered ten-fold.

Locals will point you the way when you’re lost, will translate when you don’t know the words, will give you a lift when you don’t have a car.

People will look out for you.

And that’s a truly beautiful thing.
