Why should you travel when you can just be contented right where you are? Actually, most of us love to travel the world. If we are given a chance to explore without any worries, most of us would jump at the chance to see this beautiful earth and all its glory.
If you are thinking of travelling but just unsure if you should, here are reasons why you should go:
Travel makes you a different person
Meeting new people, seeing the culture of a different country, knowing that there is a different part of this earth that is totally different from what you are used to can change you. And, in most cases, for the better!
Lets you know a new skill you never knew you had
Sometimes it is only when you are far from home and is presented with different obstacles that you realise that you have a set of skills you have never used. It is only when we travel that these skills come to surface which will make us proud and happy in the process.
Lets you learn a new language
It is really satisfying when you understand a couple of the words the locals are saying and you throwing a few words back. Then when you get back home, you have a sense of pride as you understand what language someone is saying just because you have already been in their country.
A world of adventure
When you travel, you enter a world of new adventure. Experience navigating the maze-like streets of Paris, or why not zip-lining over in the jungles of Peru. The adventure is limitless.
You don’t actually need to be rich to travel a lot. However, most people think they need a lot of budgets to enjoy a good vacation. But with a good bit of planning, you can actually go to the places you really love to visit.
Here are some ways you can travel even if you have a tight budget:
Plan ahead of time
Everything gets expensive the longer you make your plans wait. You may miss out on a good plane ticket deal, hotel reservation or cruise packages if you just keep on looking for them but you are not even booking it. So plan your destination and start scouting for good deals. Once you find the perfect one for you, don’t hesitate to book it.
Travel during the off-season
Sticking to off-peak times can seriously cut the cost of your travelling expenses in half. Planning your trip during the off-season can save you more money which will allow you to spend more during your trip. Avoid booking during major holidays, spring and summer breaks.
Watch out for flight price changes
If you are planning a trip in advance, better get price alert through Skyscanner. This will let you monitor if the prices for tickets are going up and down and you can decide easily if you will be getting a ticket or wait a bit more for the price changed.
Don’t bring that bulky suitcase
Some airlines charge an extra when you check a bag. So if you do not want to pay for that extra, just leave that bulky suitcase at home. Also, a large luggage can be troublesome especially if you are travelling to many different locations.
