Why traveling is good?

There is nothing in the world more beautiful than home. And no matter how amazing places we have visited, no matter how incredible miracles we meet on our way, the spirit of our native land will always force us to return home. But everyone has such a state when they want to pack their bags and go as far as possible, get away from everyday life, change the situation, and there are various reasons for that.

New acquaintances

It is known that a person can develop only in society. Our friends and acquaintances make our life bright and interesting. New people are the first things that give us travel. Be it a tour operator or guide, an administrator at a hotel or a simple seller at a store in a new city for us - they all bring something new into our life, supply us with new information and new impressions, and sometimes even change our perception of the world.

Expanding your horizons

A person who has never been to Paris will not be able to imagine all his beauty, but at the same time he will tell everyone that he does not like the city. We travel to get to know the world, to see how such ordinary people live in other parts of the world. Often, even having left for another city, we notice that people there think completely differently, not to mention countries with a different culture and religion. New impressions make us look at the world with completely different eyes, and sometimes give answers to the most intimate questions.

Increase communication skills

No matter how sad, but often the work pushes us into frames, turning it from an individual person into a machine that performs actions according to an algorithm already developed. Now imagine the situation: you went on a business trip to a country unknown to you and lost the person who accompanied you. Agree, an unpleasant situation. Many of us may find it difficult to navigate in a similar situation. One of the features of travel is unpredictability: you never know what can happen. Today the bus broke, tomorrow you will have to start learning the local language to buy the necessary goods at a local store. Having experienced this once, in the future it will be easier to understand how to act. After all, there is nothing more valuable experience, albeit bitter.


A person has a certain reserve of motivation. For example, we go to work, motivating ourselves with wages, but gradually our enthusiasm disappears. That's when we decide that we need to rest. And so, a person tired of work comes to Japan and enters the Hitachi National Park, bewitching with its beauty, or all the beauty of the Victoria Falls of South America opens before it. Struck by all the greatness of these incredible places, he returns home full of strength and desire to work on.

Cultural development

New places are new information. Every single nation is a history that has developed over thousands of years and has its own unique traditions and culture. To visit the flower parade in Holland or to attend the tea ceremony in China, to plunge into the greatness of Buddhist temples in Tibet, or to go to dinner for an American family on Thanksgiving Day - this is what you decide. But plunging into another culture, you become more versatile, and more interesting people in the eyes of others.

Self cognition

Changing the situation and the difficulties encountered along the way help us to assess our strengths, to find our weak and strong points. Often, only new information can affect our emotional and spiritual well-being. Often there are people who lose their purpose in life or want to radically change it. Many psychologists in this case recommend that you go to some quiet and peaceful place, away from the everyday rush. Especially spiritual knowledge occurs during the pilgrimage, which is also a journey and a type of tourism.

Vivid memories for a lifetime

Any bright event is reflected in our memory. We may forget the details, the difficulties we encountered, but the bright and genuine emotions remain forever in our memory. If the trip was successful, we always remember it with warmth and a touch of nostalgia, and also tell children and grandchildren. After all, in their old age they will be interested, not how we changed our phones and spent time at work, but the experiences we experienced and various interesting and funny stories.
