Traveling around the world seems to be an unattainable dream for many. Primarily because of the cost involved as well as the time required, some would probably resign to just maintaining it as a dream. Be that as it may, there are three main reasons why we should consider going around the world in spite of the limitations.
To See the Beauty of the World with Our Own Eyes
Pictures of beautiful places are good but they can never be as good as the real thing. Seeing places with our own eyes is a real experience that will be hard to top even by the most eloquent description of places to see. In fact, being face to face with the real thing itself has made poets and writers out of travelers.
To Know the Difference Between Staying at Home and Traveling
Many people are quick to say that they are happy enough staying put in their place of origin. The fact of the matter is that we will not know the difference unless we try. Think of the opportunities missed if traveling turns out to be a passion. If it turns out to be a non-preferred way of living, then you will at least know for sure.
To Truly Live
Nothing can make a person more alive than being exposed to different cultures and people. It would be difficult to claim that we have truly lived our life to the maximum unless we get the chance to go beyond our territorial comfort zones. Going around the world gives us this opportunity, an opportunity that perhaps will not be available if we choose to limit ourselves in one place.
And There Are So Many Other Reasons Like…
We need not have earth-shaking reasons to travel. Our reason can be as simple as seeing a famous landmark or visiting a loved one in a foreign country or experiencing a local event in a far-away foreign country. Although age is not supposed to be an obstacle to seeing the world, it would obviously be more enjoyable to do when we are still fit and healthy.
After the travels, there will definitely be good memories to look back to. Aside from photos, there will be travel journals and memories of the heart to remember. Given the chance, there is so much reason to travel and to do it around the world.
