Recently, I discovered the happiness and beauty of traveling. I know you’ll laugh at me but 2015 is the year where I get to ride a plane by myself. I was too busy thinking of different things, working for six days a week since I got my first job after graduation and living a stressful life in my previous working place. I was just daydreaming of having a great vacation, a job that will let me travel the world and do whatever I want. For me, that was just an imagination, an impossible thing to happen and I don’t have that self-confidence to chase my dreams. Until I realized that I am getting older.
Traveling is fun and if you’re in doubt, here are my own reasons and opinions why you should travel in your 20’s, with or without friends.
You’re young, no responsibilities and full of energy. Let’s admit it. Traveling is easier and more enjoyable when you’re young and you don’t have to worry about anything. You should take advantage of this age where you’re free to do whatever you want without thinking about kids, partner and everything that you have to prioritize when you get married and have a family of your own.
To find yourself and whatever you want to be. Lots of people found their passions and realized about their goals during their travels. If you’re still in doubt about what career you’ll pursue or what kind of job you want, you can find it from traveling different places.
To refresh your mind from the stressful job that you have. Most of us have experienced this from our everyday life as an employee and sometimes, all you need is a relaxing day at the beach or by just going to new places.
To make connections. Connections is important especially in the world that we live in today. You’ll never know when there’s an opportunity from someone you meet from your last travel. Aside from opportunities, you’ll get to have new circle of friends and having friends in each cities is amazing and cool, right?
It’s easier for you to finance your travels. When you’re single or you’re not tied up yet, you’ll find that it’s easier for you to manage your finances and you can set an amount for your travel funds. Always remember that you don’t have to have a huge amount of money to travel. Do backpacking and find the cheapest hotels and flights that you can have.
To learn from different cultures. You’ll learn a lot from different cultures and it will make you embrace more of what you have back in your own city or country.
So there you go! That’s the reasons why you should travel. There are more reasons to do it and the best time for you to start is now! Find yourself, relax and find your happiness. You’ll lose nothing and you’ll never regret of anything when it comes to visiting new places. Always bear in your mind that experiences are priceless.
