As one reaches mid-year, they may start reflecting about what all they have gained, achieved and lost. We all do that! Don’t we? Suppose you live overseas for a particular phase of time, travel to new places, gone through the ups and downs, what is it that brings back to your memories, time and again?
Let’s wrap all the experiences, the shouts, the cheers, cries and laughter – hasn’t travel made us into a much better person? Well, that goes for the fact that those who travel, travel with an open mind and willingness to learn.
What you learn travelling around, you never learn on your class desk. The mistakes you make, makes you into a better person.
Some people already have inherited much of the qualities we have been toiling night and day travelling. Here are five vital things we can learn while travelling:
Take a Break
Doesn’t life get mundane each and every day? Have you lately felt you can’t take it anymore and you just need to break-free? Well, the answer is yes! We all deserve a break and change in life, where we can do what we like and the way we want it.
So do not be in a dilemma to take a break and relax as much as you can. At the end of the break, you can ponder on your life and the journey you need to take ahead.
If you are heading towards a hill station, or a city beside the beach, bring the inner person out of you and reflect upon yourself. Sit at the shore or beside a river for hours and gaze at the landscapes and scenery.
You might be inspired to write a journal while travelling, which in turn, might surprise you when you get to know yourself.
Learn a New Language
New places sprout new culture and languages. If you’re in love with that place, you’ll surely pick up the local language. In this present age, learning a new language benefits a person very much. Your holiday will not only be a fun time, but also turn out to be knowledgeable for you. New languages beget new memories!
Face your Fears
Fear and travel can never go together. Fear snatches away the enjoyment and fills you with uncertainty, doubt and hopelessness. It can be the fear of travelling alone or with loved ones, fear of water and of heights. Face nature without fear, and nature will make you feel at home. Take a chance to explore something new that too, without fear and you’ll soon realise the wonder of travelling.
Be More Active
When on a vacation, you get the opportunity to be more active with activities such as rock climbing, rafting and other beach activities. You will definitely not be locked in your hotel room all day.
There’s plenty so see, do, discover and explore. Even if you do not attempt the sporting activities, you can simply walk around and get to know the place, talk to people, and try different cuisines. Yes, travelling is hectic; keeps body, mind and soul active and energetic, and moreover, reduces stress.
