The Benefits of Travel

We understand that not everyone likes to travel. No doubt it can be challenging, but there are significant benefits if you choose to enliven your routine with a little excursion.

Traveling makes you smarter!

From the beginning of choosing a location, packing your suitcases and figuring out the logistics of who will water your plants or sit your pet, traveling takes you out of your routine. Anything new and different like this which engages your brain, causes new neurological pathways to grow.

Learning a new language, taking a cooking or painting class while on your trip and meeting new people all place you in unique situations, and your brain strengthens.

Traveling is healthy for you!

 

Traveling makes you strong!

We realize that for some, all these new patterns outside the everyday routine can be perceived as a hassle to some people. Yes, and that’s good! We learn flexibility, creativity and self-reliance. Those are great attributes to have and useful to daily living.

Flexibility of mind, new solutions to new challenges and our sense of who we are and how we cope gets stronger.

Traveling helps you become an interesting story teller.

When things don’t go according to plan, those seemingly challenging circumstances make for the best stories!

If everything goes perfectly on your trip or vacation, and people ask “How did you enjoy yourselves? How was your trip?” All you can say is “Great!”

But if you lose your luggage in a foreign country, an unexpected hail storm hits your day outing, or your boat’s motor konks out, it’s then you have stories to tell! Like when our coaster bus had three flat tires on a trip back from El Salvadore to Guatemala.

Don’t fret, go with the flow!

Traveling opens your mind.

One of the best benefits of travel is the widening of perspective.

When you visit other cultures, engaging with the people, their customs, their food, their language and the different natural surroundings, it can’t help but change your perspective.

That internal road to opening your mind has benefits for you when you return home.

 

Traveling helps you lighten up.

When you take a trip, you realize that you can’t bring everything with you in your suitcase. It’s just not possible.

So, when you live out of a suitcase for a month or more, you come to realize that all the “stuff” you have at home might not be as necessary as you once thought. How many pairs of shoes do you need? How many sweaters, shirts, and change of clothing are crucial to a comfortable life?

Did you survive not seeing your favorite TV programs? Did you miss that ball game?

The encounter with minimalism that travel requires is refreshing.

Take a chance, take a trip!

So you see, the exotic and the new that you encounter when on the road has measurable, significant benefits for you.

Grow your brain! Expand your mind! Lighten up on your stuff and take a trip!

And you might meet us on the road less traveled!
