Away from the hustle and bustle of adult life you can really get the chance to relax and think. You don’t need to think about anything in particular, but you’ll find that you really get the head space that allows your mind to wander.
While travelling, it’s common to have long train rides, plane journeys or bus commutes, and this can be the perfect time to sit back, relax and think about anything your mind creates.You’ll find yourself free from the stresses that everyday life can give you, so make the most of this time and get everything that you can from your experience.
Travelling gives you opportunities that you just won’t get by going to work every day, paying your bills and drinking with your friends at the weekend. There’s a whole world out there with so much to offer. Whether you’re scuba diving at the Great Barrier Reef, walking the Inca Trail in Peru or volunteering in Tanzania, you’re creating a new experience. This is what counts. You’re creating memories that will build you as a person and stay with you for the rest of your life.
You’ll learn a new appreciation for the world that you just can’t get if you’ve not seen it. The beauty of the different landscapes and the different ways of life can be truly insightful. When you see people living in poverty who are so happy, you’ll gain a new appreciation for the simple things in life that we often take for granted. Don’t be afraid of travelling. It won’t necessarily be plain sailing, but everything that happens is all part of the experience. Yes, you may sit on a crowded bus for ten hours with no air conditioning to arrive at a hostel that looks less than comfortable. But do you know what? So have loads of other people. Go out there and make friends. There’s bound to be other people in the same situation. You never know, you really could make friends for life when you’re travelling the world.
