“Ready world? Here we come!”

That seems to be the tune travelers are singing more than ever before. In fact, international tourism is up 6% in the last year while recording 1.4 billion arrivals.

Are you ready to join in the fun? Maybe you’ve been dreaming of traveling but just haven’t made it happen yet?

We want to help you put traveling near the top of your priority list. That’s why we’re compiling our five favorite reasons to travel to give you a little extra push.

1. Breaks Up the Routine

If your days are beginning to look the same, traveling is the perfect solution to escape the routine. It’s a good idea to always have a travel vacation on the calendar. It gives you something to look forward to and it makes the daily grind bearable.

The exhilaration you feel traveling to a new destination and taking in all there is to see and do is the best cure for the soul. The experience is like hitting a reset button. You’ll return to your usual lifestyle with renewed energy and focus.

2. Offers Real Life Education

Traveling gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in a destination. You experience the culture and history first hand.

When you travel, your knowledge comes to life with detail and insight you can’t gain from a book. You can witness remnants of historical events and geography first-hand, and see things how important historical figures saw them. These encounters are more meaningful and memorable when you experience them up close and personal.

3. Experience New Things

Instagram is full of beautiful pictures of the world, but nothing beats going into the world and seeing beauty with your own eyes. From the pyramids of Egypt to the Great Wall of China, there’s something magnificent to marvel at in every corner of the world.

4. Chance to Live in the Moment

Perhaps the best part of traveling is the immediacy of it all. It’s as if all your senses are engaged and you are completely present in the moment. Long gone are thoughts of the past and anxiety about the future. You’re too busy absorbing all there is to see and do in your new destination.

5. Opportunity to Make New Friends

One way to take a piece of your travels with you is to make new friends. Few things are as joyous as meeting new people from around the world as you get to see their homeland from a different perspective. You get to hear their stories and learn how their experiences have led them to who they are today.

Your new friends can advise the best hotels to stay at and what local experiences you must have on your bucket list.

And with all the tools we have to connect, you can easily keep in touch with them. Who knows, they might even let you stay with them the next time you visit.

The Best Reasons to Travel

We could easily list a dozen more fantastic reasons to travel, but we’ll leave you with one more: traveling is money well spent.

Many of us put off traveling due to the cost, but when you add up all the benefits, it just may be the best investment you can make. It’s an investment in your well-being.

You may regret purchasing those new shoes. But you’ll never regret your travel experiences, which leave lasting memories you’ll cherish for the rest of your life.
