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 1 in a seven post series on why you should travel.
Meet New People
Meeting people while you’re traveling and meeting people when you’re home in your comfort zone are two very different experiences. When you travel, you have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, locals and other travelers alike.
Meeting locals is great because you can learn so much more about a place just by getting to know someone who lives there. It’s amazing how much more can be learned about a place from one conversation with a local than with a travel book.
Meeting other travelers is also great because everyone is away from home and out of their comfort zones. It’s extraordinary how quickly you can get to know people while you are outside your comfort zone. You will meet people outside your normal circle, from all over the world, all with different stories and experiences to share.
Another great thing about meeting new people while traveling is that often these people turn into new friends. At the end of it all, you have friends all over the world to go and visit!
