There are so many reasons to travel, whether it’s for a long weekend, a week, a month, a year, or a lifetime. Here is part three in a seven post series on why you should travel.
Experience New Climates
Experiencing new climates can be very exciting – especially if they are very different from your own. Traveling allows people to choose what kind of climate they want to be in for as long as they are traveling.
If you like warm, subtropical climates, you could happily spend time in Miami, Florida. For those who love winter weather, Montreal Canada offers a lot of winter activities. And for those who like the four seasons, New York City is a great place to be in winter, spring, summer or fall!
Exploring the nature of new climates often involves new activities and different ways to explore the surrounding area. For example, in Montreal, Canada where there is often snow on the ground, there are a lot of winter sports to participate in.
Downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, sledding and ice skating are all fun activities to have in the snow. Winter hiking can be done with snow shoes – a new kind of adventure for many people who haven’t grown up in snowy climates.
Climates also have a large influence on societies. For example, in Miami, Florida where the weather is subtropical, the pace of the city is slower than in colder climates. People move slower and there is less of a rush to get from one place to the next than in, say, Montreal or New york City where it is a colder climate.
Whatever kind of weather you enjoy, traveling is a great way to spend time in the kind of climate you love and also experience new climates!
