Travel has been praised enough for its ability to give us new perspectives, expose us to varied cultures and refresh our minds from the typical day-to-day life. The instagram accounts of people are buzzing to give you inspiration and painting the popular image of “ There is never a dull moment”. If social media is not inspiring enough , you see it in movies all the time. Yes , I am talking about Julia Roberts in Eat, Pray, Love, Reese Witherspoon in Wild, Kangana Ranaut in Queen – and I am sure there are many others in making as I type. Travel has different meaning for different people. For some travel is just another way to blow off some steam , for some its therapeutic ,for some its finding true self and for some ( calling all digital nomads … here) it is now a way of life. If you are packing your bag setting out to discover on the whim of “100 ways travel changes your life for the better” , think twice , because travel might be a life altering hobby or venture but if you are not doing it for right reasons , you will not enjoy it for long and trust me your love affair with travel will have an expiry date.
So lets take a look at some reasons ( which frankly have been my driving force to travel) that can trigger our happy feet and set us on a new adventure. If you resonate with any of the reasons below , travelling might be your cup of tea.
