From centuries, people travel for luxury to get out of their busy and hectic schedules and relax. But in this era, travelling has become a necessity for number of people. The beauty and cold of the hills, the charm of the valleys, the chirping of birds, the song of the rivers, the howling of animals, pleasant air, quiet places, etc. can heal many of our mental and physical problems. Travelling doesn’t always mean an elaborate vacation or hopping on a plane to go somewhere. It can be as simple as driving to a state park, driving around the state and visiting different places along the trip, or driving across multiple states on a huge road trip with friends or family. It can be anywhere, anytime. What matters the most is what you took from the experience, what you’ve learned, and how much fun you’ve had.

The reason to travel is not just to go explore new places but to introspect yourself as well. You ponder over your thoughts and loosen up yourself, neither caring about past nor the future. It’s the present what you live. To some travelling is just recreation and fun, but for others, it is when you feel yourself a free soul. Travelling fosters a medium to build human connections with one another by learning about culture, food, new sites, music, and the way people live their day- to-day lives in different parts of the world. It’s the best on-site learning a person can get. The internet can only explain so much about a place. Even with virtual reality being a new and innovative option to take tour of places, there is still nothing like seeing a new place in person for the first time.

Travel expands our perception and inspires enthusiasm. You always return home as a different person after a travel journey. Travel itself is an adventure because we typically face more unknown factors when we travel out of our comfort zone. Time and time again, travelling has come through as a pursuit with multiple benefits for mind, body and soul. Indeed travel can take you to the fulfillment, which routine can never present. We, humans, are curious souls who delight in newness of all the aspects of life, whether people or places. And travelling is one ticket to experience all kinds of uniqueness.

Travelling has a way to put the life you live in perspective. As you see the distinct cultures, lifestyle people live, the cuisines, clothes, thought processes; you sense the diversity in depth. So is felt before the wide ocean, the huge mountains, and the thick forests – a feeling of sheer awe. This insight from travelling makes the anxieties we are wired to invest in our routines useless. It opens our mind to realize that life is not about fretting over mundane things; it is way more than that. No words can contain the greatness it holds. Travelling takes you to the places away from the taxing life you live every day, so that when you come back you fall in love again with the routine.

Because it teaches you to regard everything with a new-found wonder even the day-to-day tasks. Everything feels refreshing back home after a good trip. You worry less, you smile more, you let go grudges, you pay more attention – that’s the magic of travelling.
