Why People Like Traveling?

Why do we travel? Why do we make the effort to pack up our lives, surrounded by friends and family, pets and routines, and clamber onto an aeroplane, bound for somewhere we’ve never been before? So, why do we do it?

So, why do we do it?

The reasons people travel might be different from one person to the next.

But for me, travel is about context.
I am fortunate enough to travel a lot in Africa. When I go to a new destination, whether it be Zambia or Namibia, Kenya or Botswana, I am exposed to many new things. In fact, I learn so much about each country and its inhabitants, that when I return, my context has changed, and my world view is never the same again.

Some people love to travel alone.
Some people love to travel for adventure.
Some people travel to learn
Learning through travel
Some people travel to make friends
Some people travel to get close to their loved ones. Reply to this

In response to: Msg #207463 Reason #1 for me is expanding my consciousness! Travelling is great for that purpose! On arriving home I feel exhilarated and like a renewed person. Unbelievable! Reply to this

We love traveling, believing that travel helps us grow. They give us the opportunity to understand ourselves, to know our own limits and plunge into our own depths. Traveling teaches you to be strong, courageous and free. They open new horizons, learn to endure, forgive, understand other people. They expand consciousness and make you feel the integrity of the world, its unity ... Reply to this

Learning is a strong reason to travel. People want to experience something unfamiliar and leave with new skills or knowledge. Seeing the world is more educational than a high school or college class. This condensed crash course in discovering how the rest of the world lives actually will cover subjects like history, geography and sociology. Every destination has something unique to teach visitors, and immersing themselves in a completely different world is the best learning experience. Reply to this

In my perspective it's definitely the instinct to explore and to broaden my knowledge about the world we inhabit that drives me to travel. We gather new and exiting information, the days gets longer and more meaningful as we get few steps closer to what I think of as the meaning of life.

Enlightenment.

This evolves and adapts to become closer to the truth over time, rather than being stagnant, sterile and boring. Reply to this

My parents were raised in a small town that was very isolated. All their lives they dreamed of traveling the world, and as soon as they were adults, they left. Becoming parents didn't slow them down one bit. My brother and I visited more places in the world before the age of 5 than most see in their lifetime. Of course, the travel bug is deeply embedded in me. I can't fight the urge. It has shaped my life and made me who I am today. I have different priorities from those around me. I have a different outlook on life and feel deeply connected to those of other cultures. Everything about travel develops a person, and it should be experienced by everyone. But I also recognize how privileged I am that I can travel. Carbon footprint or not, it is a luxury that no one should take for granted. Reply to this

In response to: Msg #207710 Me too, Andrea. My parents started to travel around the world before I was 2 and eventually settled in the UK when I was 12. I don't know if you can catch a travel bug but I certainly was hooked by the time I was 14. Spent most of my school holidays travelling around Europe. Eventually ended up in Australia. Came for a holiday and never went home much to my mother's distress. Been to most countries (except for South America - never appealed to me for some reason though I know you have been there many times) and enjoyed all of them. Shame some of them are difficult to get to safely today. Loved Syria and Afghanistan and distressed what has happened to them now. Reply to this

I agree with your answer.
If any one wants to travel then visit "I Need Trip". They provides international holiday packages and honeymoon packages to different destinations in best prices.

Wonderful observation.
I believe it's because of the aesthetic satisfaction one gets when he travels and admires unimaginable beauty that resides within the Earth.
To travel for education purposes, entertainment, earning or business, learning about cultures and traditions around the world or simply for entertainment to relax the mind out of everyday stress and responsibilities. Reply to this
