Why Everybody Should Take At Least A Year For Travel

Travelling can do many things for the heart, body, and mind. It’s recommended by anyone who has been travelling before to take at least a year of your life to dedicate to travelling our wonderful globe. Here is why you should consider taking time to travel in your lifetime.

Travelling Can Make You A Better Person

We all know that travelling can make you a more open minded person because of all of the wonderful sights you get the pleasure of taking in. Another reason for this is because you get to briefly experience different cultures and ways of life. This makes you realise that just because someone is living differently to you, it doesn’t make their way of life wrong.

You also learn to appreciate the smaller things in life, and all of your luxuries that you’re used to at home will seem trivial. Things like your television for example, will turn into an item that you don’t miss having around. Sometimes simply sitting out in nature, in front of a fire with a group of people is all anyone needs to relax and rejuvenate.

Quite often, people begin to realise how wonderful their home city actually is too. As you’re travelling, you often get talking to the locals and the subject of where you’re from comes up. You will be surprised at how many people have dreamed about visiting your hometown. In short, travelling can help you learn to love your home again.


The Sightseeing

Of course, one of the most amazing parts of travelling is the incredible sights that you get to see. These experiences never leave your mind, and it’s something that you can treasure for the rest of your life.

Taking photos of your experience can also help you relive the magical views and moments that you felt while travelling. Many people choose to document their travels in a more official way, so that they can look back on their time away with ease. If this is something you would be interested in doing, then why not consider getting some Adobe InDesign training so that you can learn how to put your photographs together yourself. It’s also a great way of being able to set up an album of photos to show to your loved ones on your return.

You Make Lifelong Friends

One thing that many people take away from travelling, is the friendships that you make along the way. Many countries have very welcoming villagers and families that are more than willing to help tourists along their way.

Another fantastic bonus of making friends when you’re in a foreign country, is that if you choose to vacate there at any point, you could revisit your friends and even get recommendations from them on where the best place is to stay. They might even be able to put you up themselves in their homes.


The Incredible Tan

If you choose to travel to a country that has a much sunnier climate (which to be honest, who wouldn’t want to do that?) then one of the most amazing things about travelling for an extended amount of time is the incredible tan that you get. If you’re planning on spending long periods of time in the sun, don’t forget to stock up on sunscreen so that you eliminate the risk of contracting skin cancer. Even if you’re going to somewhere that’s cooler, it might be wise to take some sunscreen just to make sure you’re fully protected.

You Pick Up The Language

Another wonderful part of travelling is the languages that you get to experience. There’s nothing better than entering a new country and hearing the amazing language happening around you. When you head out for the first time in this new country and have to ask for help from a local, it brings a feeling of exhilaration to you.

Over time, especially if you’re spending an extended amount of time in a particular country, you will begin to pick up the language and you will also begin to feel more at home. Having the skill of another language is only going to help you in your future.

As you can see, there are many different reasons that people should travel for an extended amount of time. Why not take the leap and set yourself up a year of travelling soon? You won’t regret it!
