If you travel and explore the world you will experience life differently
Why do I want to encourage to travel and explore? I think it is good to do this especially for young people to make new experiences.
A while ago my young friend Rahul did message me discussing life. I learned to know him first in a video on Facebook and later did an Interview with him which you can read here:” From drop-out to a successful creative Facebook Ads Hacker.”
Some may know him as the Facebook Ads Hacker, teaching his knowledge. He also was a speaker in events about Digital marketing and blogging, started his own agency DDN and also a YouTube Channel and you can find him on Instagram.
I like that he is brave, authentic and spontaneous, always outreaching, open to discuss life.
This time it was talking about marriage, the family thought its time for him to settle. I am not against marriage, but I suggested to travel first, explore other countries and make new experiences.
Travel and explore make new experiences and discover yourself
I know, many young people think life is better in western countries and want to go to live there. Not Rahul, he loves his country, and we discussed what I told many others. It is not as it seems in western countries, we only see what the media wants us to see, and this is not reality. It is also often not easy to get a tourist visa.
Rahul had tried to go to Australia and could not get a visa.
So I suggested going to counties where no permission is needed first. Rahul started to plan his journey to go abroad.
He did it and started his adventurous journey to Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and did meet people from other countries. On the return flight, he was already inspired to make new plans for the next trip. It is called travel fever.
Now he is exploring his homeland and already made it to the south end of India. On the way he stopped in Mumbai, we saw each other in Pune, and he continued to Goa and Bengaluru. Visited Isha and meditated there, did and remarkable interview with Abdul Kalams 102-year-old brother. Also, he made trips to Chennai, Hyderabad and will connect to people on his way.
It is going to be a year of traveling for him, and he will visit more countries.
He already experienced a lot and also crazy things, but this is what exploring life is all about. He did capture his adventures on his YouTube Channel.
Here a few quotes about the benefit of traveling:
“One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things”. – Henry Miller
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness”.– Mark Twain
The whole story and experiences to get inspired to travel and explore
I will encourage Rahul to tell about his experiences here in a post. It may inspire you to travel & explore, see what Life Is all about and find yourself.
“As you travel solo, being totally responsible for yourself, it’s inevitable that you will discover just how capable you are.” — Unknown.
“We travel, initially, to lose ourselves; and we travel, next to find ourselves. We travel to open our hearts and eyes and learn more about the world than our newspapers will accommodate” – Pico Iyer.
“Uncover what you long for, and you will discover who you are.” ― Phil Cousineau,
Why is to travel and explore the best thing to do?
Every new place and every experience leaves a small trace on your soul. You look at the world from another angle and breathe the air of foreign continents,
The feeling of happiness and freedom
You get a clear head, leave the work behind and maybe even turn off the phone. You may love getting lost in a bus in Mumbai or drink a cold beer on the beach in Thailand.
Look outside the box, be adventurous and dare something. There are so many ways to travel and discover something new.
You can challenge your limits, become a strong personality and gain experiences that you might not have made at home.
New inspiration will come. On the return flight, you may already be inspired and make new plans for the next trip because you are suffering from acute travel fever.
Get to know new things, and you can meet people you might never have talked to before. Either you meet at the hotel buffet or in the hostel kitchen. You can exchange ideas, get to know new perspectives and, for example, experience what traditions there are in another country.
Discover the beauty of the world; there are more beautiful places to see. Your heart will jump higher as you discover the beauty of nature.
Get your head free and breathe deeply
Travel is also an escape from everyday life, from problems or a monotonous life. But that does not matter. Finally, you get your head free, be yourself and breath freely. There may be other things that you need to take care of when backpacking, whether the mosquito bites were maybe bed bugs or what next City you should fly.
Broaden your Horizon
You broaden your horizon and finally have something to tell. You form your personality, have seen other things than your city and the backyard of your parents’ house. Even, you may spoil the stomach at a street food snack, or you discover a secret beach in Thailand. Focus on your horizon, your empathy, and your perception.
You will become spiritually wealthy. Your head will be full of impressions, and the memory of the camera is full of pictures and video.
Another reason why traveling is good is that we become more frugal and appreciate things more. If you have not seen your family for a while, you are more pleased to be able to embrace them after a long journey.
Also, you have fun, because you do what you enjoy. Do you like the mountains, sea, and landscape? Well, let’s go! Are you an adventurer and all India is on your list? It is waiting for you.
Do something good for yourself and your soul. Let yourself be fascinated, come out, wonder, and collect impressions. After all, you do not want to regret anything or at some point and say, “If only I had gone then …”, right?
The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are. – Samuel Johnson
“Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard
The future is to travel and explore the world
I think in the future people will travel and connect more, and I think it is good.
Because: “The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson
It would be beautiful if young people could do what Rahul did and take a year off to travel, explore and gain experience.
“I am not born for one corner; the whole world is my native land.” – Seneca
“People travel to faraway places to watch, in fascination, the kind of people they ignore at home.” – Dagobert D. Runes
