Hi everyone, and welcome to The Travel Corner, a blog dedicated to all those choosing to respond to their wanderlust. As a first post, I thought it would be a good idea to explain what inspired me to create this blog in the first place and why travelling is to my mind one of life’s best experiences.
Why travelling is probably the best investment you can make:
1. Adventure and excitement:
What better way to make the daily routine more bearable than planning ahead a trip, which would without a doubt give you something to look forward to in the future? Travelling should be a lot more than just lying on a beach and eating our own weights in local food, but rather an opportunity to evade our daily lives and create unforgettable memories. Nothing makes me feel more alive than the thought of embarking on a new adventure. The world is an immense place, and everyone has the right to discover it.
2. Lifelong learning experience:
Compared to a degree, travelling is sure to guarantee a learning experience to last a lifetime, and the best part of it all – there is no graduation date. Exploring new places and discovering new cultures will not only help you expand your general knowledge but also expose you to unique experiences, no books could ever teach you about. When starting to experience new cultures, your mind will begin to change accordingly and you will become more accepting of others and more open to new experiences.
3. Getting to know yourself while exploring the world:
I think this is something any traveler would get to experience at some point during their journeys. Whether it’s a new type of food, a new belief or a new hobby, travel can decisively influence our own personal development by exposing us to a range of experiences we would otherwise never have the chance to discover. In my case, this would be making photography something more than just a hobby. I believe that my decision to go on a Year Abroad to Berlin has convinced me to stop making excuses and get a camera that would allow me to capture the beauty of the places I had the chance to see and make these experiences last for a lifetime.
Believe it or not, booking a ticket to a destination of choice will take you somewhere new and straight out of your comfort zone, but the unique memories you will come back with will undoubtedly make it worthwhile.
