IT EXPANDS YOUR MIND
There is a saying by Mark Twain that travel is the cure for bigotry, prejudice, and narrow-mindedness. When you travel you are taken out of your comfort zone and it forces you to grow. If you are traveling solo with a backpack especially, you are challenged to adapt and thrive in new environments that are foreign to you. You start think differently the way you had before and you gain new perspective as to how to look at life.
When you are traveling, you will meet individuals who can teach you so many aspects of yourselves that you did not realize. Assuming you go to hospitable and friendly countries, the locals will want to learn from you and share experiences that you never dreamed of. Who knows, you might just meet the love of your life, or one of your closest friends. The world is vast and beautiful
If you are traveling with your family or friends, it gives you the time and closeness to learn more about each other. You are there to grow together and experiences new things together. These are memories that you will remember for the rest of your life. It is the perfect opportunity to learn more about each other and bond further in the relationship.
