Who here has not been infected by the “travel bug”? Traveling is a great way to escape the “daily grind” and makes memories that will last a lifetime. Whether you travel by car, bus, train or plane, it is by far the best way to take a break from life.
Traveling allows us to see the world in a different light and experience different cultures. Instead of criticizing something for being “different”, traveling motivates you to try different cuisines and entertainment – it really opens up our minds to new things and experiences.
For instance, as a student you may be tempted to take a year off and travel through Europe – wouldn’t it be cool to pick up a new language in the process?
There are so many benefits of traveling but the only thing that seems to hold back a lot of people is the costs associated with it – traveling is not cheap, especially if you’re dealing with airlines. A lot of people plan for years, saving their air miles, in order to be able to take that trip to Europe or down south. The point is, once you’ve finally reached your destination, you can travel quite cheaply by staying with relatives or hostels.
