Four Wonderful Benefits of Travelling


When it comes to the hobbies, many people will put out that they a really a big fan of travelling. As one of the most effective ways for people to experience the world, travelling enables you to enjoy different scenery, colorful cultures, various cuisines… As for the means of travelling, many people like to make thorough schedules before setting out. Others, however, many prefer taking a casual trip to any destination that attracts them without making detailed planning, and just freely let it be.

Travelling has various wonderful benefits. In this passage, I want to inspire all of you to travel more by introducing the following four benefits to you so that travelling will become a new trend in this age.


When you travel, you can:

1. Find a new purpose

To travel means to leave the fixed places you work and live. In this way, you can expose yourself to meet new people of various life experience, backgrounds and life attitudes. By talking with different groups of people, you can feel that your mindset becomes more and more open. So, if you feel depressed or not knowing what to do, just put aside the work at hand, and engage yourself in a travel. The newness in life will make you rethink about what is important to your life and what kind of person you want to be. You might be surprised about the new sense of life direction and purpose.


2. Get unforgettable memories.

Do you usually use your mobile phones or cameras to take photos or videos whenever you see some wonderful sights? Or do you like to buy some products of local features? I myself enjoy very much collecting and recording every exciting or surprising thing during my vacation. Today, I recommend all of you to record the good memories that trips bring to you. When you are tired of your dull daily routines, just take out the photos and videos, they will refresh your memories about the wonderful time you spent during trips. These recordings are so tangible that they could leave life-long memories which constitutes an inseparable part of your life.


3. Have a better relationship with others

When travelling, you and your companions will spend your time together to enjoy the uncertainty of the new journey. You may cooperate to handle the accidents that should happen without any preparations. Or you may also quarrel about things like where to visit, what to eat, how to get there, etc. This is the reason why travelling can be such a great boding activity for families and friends.

4. Become more inclusive and open-minded

As Mark Twain once put it, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow mindedness.” Although we come from different cultural backgrounds and social classes, we share the similar flame of humanity. When travelling, you may be greatly shocked by the immense differences in diet, customs, and living conditions. All of these can make you realize the smallness of ourselves and stimulate your curiosity to explore the unknown because they can bring newness and differences to our limited world and thoughts. In this way, our horizon is well widened. And we become inclusive and start to appreciate all the different cultures, which together constitute the diversity of human civilization.
