Travelers are among the best storytellers you will ever meet. And no two tales are ever the same, which makes hearing about places and experiences even more fascinating. Here are just some of the best things about life on the road that will make you want to travel more.
1. You discover things about yourself
Traveling is certainly not the only way to discover more about yourself. But it is without a doubt one of the best teachers out there. Venturing into unfamiliar places, dealing with things outside your comfort zone, meeting locals and fellow travelers, and immersing in different cultures allow you to explore and cope with whatever challenges you encounter on a trip.
2. You won't get bored
There is always room for something new on every trip. Just when you think you have seen it all in all your travels, a new experience or scenery will take you by surprise. There will be plenty more to explore even in the places you often go back to.
3. You keep learning
There are things you learn while on the road that you may not even have thought of before. It makes you see things from different points of views. Interacting with locals and other travelers open your mind to diverse ideas. And this can be great sources of information and inspirations that you can tap into.
4. You see things from different lenses
As Mark Twain said, "Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." Traveling puts you in situations where you meet people and get a glimpse of their daily life. And the longer you stay in one place, the more you find and build connections with people from all walks of life. This is probably why some of the most interesting and tolerant people you will ever meet are travelers who have spent most of their time exploring the world.
5. You can enjoy more food adventures
Finding vegan or vegetarian food while traveling has become easier. With vegan tourism on the rise, you can expect more exciting plant-based offerings from around the world. From veg-friendly restaurants in airports to vegan accommodations and everything in between, you will find a growing array of veg options on your travels.
Traveling more does not have to take you to far-flung destinations. It could be a trip to a neighboring town or city. Or it could be about visiting unfamiliar places and being a tourist in your hometown. Near or far, traveling will take you on a journey to a lot of interesting discoveries.
