To find out who you really are
Traveling is the most powerful tool of inspiration. If your work is connected to art and it requires much of creativity, then this is just your time to go and enrich your inner self. The world around is a living inspiration and there is no better place to make some new photos for your professional portfolio as the world out there.
If you are a teacher, an office worker or an accountant, traveling might point you out on accuracy of your choice. Maybe you were never meant to sit in a cubicle or in a leather chair. Maybe you were meant to go outside these borders and see the world. Or maybe on the contrary, traveling might help you realize that job you thought you hated was actually the one you’ve wanted all along.
You are not guaranteed old age
This is the modern world that makes us compete with each other in order to find a better job, to find a better spouse and to build up a better life. But we don’t always consider that fact that we are wasting our time on things that are not worth it. It is a huge mistake to put off traveling in exchange for the belief that you can do it when you retire and have more time. Remember that we may not even meet our forties or fifties, and that’s completely okay as we never know what has tomorrow prepared for us. Live your life in such a way that one day when you retire after all, you don’t regret you didn’t experience something to the full.
Our economy won’t give us opportunities anyways
We are only here in this form once, why not live the life you want and do what brings you joy? Why are you choosing to work crazy hours just to complete one more step of your career ladder? Whom and what do you want to prove? Rushing from one job to another, feeling depressed because you didn’t pass the interview are not that much important issues to worry about. It is not about you who can’t succeed in life, it’s about our economy and the overall situation of unemployment in the whole world.
Consider taking an overseas job instead. Go volunteering where you’ll be covered with food and accommodation and will get a chance to see the world and to experience peculiarities of another culture. Pick up an internship program and make a big advantage for your CV out of it. Getting to work abroad is always a win-win choice as it doesn’t only give you an opportunity to earn much money, communicate with people of different mentalities and travel, but it also…

…Pushes your educational horizons
Seeing the world provides a source of education absolutely impossible get in school, teaching you things like economy, politics, history, geography and sociology. Agree, it is boring to just read about the natural wonders of the world. It would be much more interesting and productive to experience than just to learn. Traveling makes history come alive. The stories are no longer pictures in a book, but tangible memories you remember much longer than anything you could study in school. Moreover, the knowledge you get from traveling are much deeper than those gained at school, they get stuck in your memories for longer so later you will be capable to tell your children about all the interesting things you’d experienced.
Besides, you get a chance to learn foreign languages. There’s always something satisfying about being able to throw around a few words of Greek, knowing how to say hello and thanks in Thai, pulling out that long dormant Spanish to book a room in Santiago, or simply hearing a language you didn’t know existed just a few weeks before.
To get rid of your fears and restrictions
Traveling means getting out of your comfort zone and going to meet all that might seem interesting, touching, overwhelming, shocking and awkward. Traveling gives you the strength and readiness to face the unexpectable. It prepares your immunity to conquer your fears and helps go further our own restrictions.
When going traveling you will see things like jumping with parachute completely normal for some people that was something of never-to-do list at your home town. You will see that people can actually make friends with the sharks and maybe this will inspire you to try something as extreme as diving together with these scary fish. Whatever you choose to do, you will see how much more courageous you’d become and how many opportunities had opened up for you.
Food and cooking have blown up in popular culture in the last few years by the advent of celebrity television chefs and channels devoted to cooking, but we still have much to learn from the rest of the world. Try taking a cooking class in Chaing Mai, Thailand or in Shanghai. It is a way more instructive to learn from the first hand and with the origin recipes. There are more new and interesting dishes out there than anyone will have time to sample in a lifetime.
Pick up some cooking tips from the locals who cook over an open flame. Experience all of its taste and flavor with your own mouth, not through reading the texts that make you swallow your own salive.
