I travel so I can become more educated. I want to know about the world, about different cultures and the history of places. Yeah, I could read all about it in a book or online, but it just isn’t the same. I also want to learn more about myself and travel helps me understand what I’m capable of doing. Experience is the best teacher!

I’m not your usual traveler. I don’t hike, camp or get up early to explore. I’m a luxury traveller, someone who travels to get away from it all, sample local cuisine, enjoy a glass of cold wine with spectacular views and simply relax. I love to push myself out of my comfort zone on press trips with my blog and youtube channel but before I did this blogging thing full-time my travelling was a package holiday with my boyfriend to de-stress and recharge. While you can’t deny the rush and true authenticity of backpacking, sometimes it’s nice to jet away and see new places with a little bit of luxury too!

I travel because I enjoy the feeling of being in a new world that’s completely different from where I live in. I get to meet new people and learn about their lifestyle. I get submerged into a whole different culture that I can adapt. I get to try new food and see magnificent places. I get to achieve a lot of things on my bucket list since I get to see the sites that I have only witnessed in the movies. I also get to marvel at some of the wonders that the world has to offer. I also become more exposed of the things happening in this world and I get to share my story with others.

I gain more experience about life and I get to learn more about me: what I love, what I intend to do, and what I aim to be because travelling opens up my eyes to a variety of opportunities and possibilities.

Most of all, travelling enables me to document significant moments in my life which I can add to the treasure of memories that I would have afterwards.

I travel because I am a traveler. I travel because I cannot, not travel. Traveling is in my heart, in my soul, and in my entire essence. Traveling is my home. Traveling is my life. I don’t see countries, borders, and boundaries, but I see the world I want to see and must explore. I love the butterflies when booking a trip or rushing to the airport. I, even more, love that feeling of arriving in an unknown place, but deeply knowing that everything will be alright. I love finding comfort in the uncomfortable. I love living outside of my comfort zone, pushing my boundaries, testing my limits.

I love that I can be who am I in the moment, that it okay to be weird, it is okay to not know, it is okay to be curious, it is okay to get lost, it is okay to find myself, and it is okay to be myself. I love beautiful building, architecture, nature, people-watching, the colors, the smells, the movements, the sounds, and the tastes. I love the unfamiliar familiarity. I love realizing over and over again that how similar and connected we are. I love feeling alive, and I love feeling that it is worth living. Check out her Facebook Page!

I am addicted to the flow of a journey. Its a process to get there, but once you got it you never want to let it go. Life itself carries you through countries, to people to cultures that you never imagined in your wildest dreams. Once you step out of your comfort zone into the adventure, that is where the flow starts. This is where you grow. You learn to trust in your way, trust people, feel out the vibe of places and energy. Your senses get sharper and your emotions clearer. Life spices up. It’s the feeling in the morning when you open your eyes, ready for the unexpected, open mind, open heart.

Your limits expand naturally, your self-esteem is on the rise. It is not an easy way, but it is rewarding and fun. It is an emotional roller coaster, no doubt. The journey of your life, inwards and outwards. Once you are on the road you fall in love with weirdness. I love the intensity you live when you are out there. I love the kindness of strangers, the beauty of nature and the adventures that await you. Unexpected and fresh.

My husband and I have always traveled and when we had children we knew we would continue to travel with them right by our side.  We wanted to instill a lifelong love of exploration because travel is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.  Many of our friends said they wanted to wait until their kids were older to start traveling but what they gain from traveling is something they should get from an early age.  This is the top ten things kids can learn from traveling:

1.       They see the world in a new perspective. The world will not seem so unknown, but rather will make them curious and question where they want to go next.

2.     They learn so much about themselves. Traveling helps you define yourself and a good vacation is one where you come home changed for the better.

3.      They learn to explore and appreciate how great it can be to get lost. Getting lost shows kids it’s ok to let loose, go with it, and live in the moment.

4.     It builds confidence. Small accomplishments will make them believe in themselves. 

5.     They learn that food can consist of more than chicken fingers and pizza. They may not like it but at least they give it a chance experience it once.

6.     They see new cultures.

7.      They learn more about their own culture.

8.     They meet interesting people. Sure there are some crazies out there, but sometimes they can make your vacation a blast.

9.     They get out of their comfort zone and try new things.

10.  They learn to relax, disconnect, and be in the moment.

Travel is one of the best gifts you can give yourself

  • I love this article because it shows there is no way right or wong reasons to travel. It is a personal thing and we all do it differently for different reasons.

    Thanks for sharing these stories

  • It’s so great to hear others motivations for travelling. I love the first comment about travelling as education. It really is an educational experience for the soul 🙂

  • I think I can relate a little bit to each one of those travelers. I don’t particularly have to do one trip type over the other or have a singular reason. And to me each trip has a different meaning and flavor. Each destination offers a different perspective and something to learn. Sometimes a trip is just pure de-stress and relaxation. Travel because it makes you feel good – I think that’s really the core reason we all do it.
