Why do you love to travel?

Why do you love to travel?

Are you a naturally curious person? Do you love to expose yourself to new places, people and experiences? Do you want to take the family or the squad on a memorable trip or are you simply looking for some time to rest, relax and recharge?

Your reason for traveling is personal but known to you but today at 365TravelPlan we want to share some of the reasons that have inspired fellow travelers.  We hope you get inspired too.

Let’s take a quick look, shall we?

“I think the exposure to new places and new people can be really reviving personally and also eye-opening to see how other people live. To see how life functions, whether human or natural life, in other places is really humbling. It’s easy to have your status quo at home, but as soon as you’re in a new place – all bets are off. You can do anything, and are so willing to try new stuff to push your own boundaries purely because you’re in a new place.”

-Pearl

“I love to travel because not only is it the ultimate adventure but it also exposes you to new types of people, different ways of living, and opens up your mind. I just like to walk around in beautiful places that resemble the shire from Lord of the Rings while exploring new culinary terrains.”

-Mathew

“Traveling reminds me that my life isn’t the only one I could live and that in the grand scheme of things, I’m pretty unimportant to this world we live in. People get so caught up in their daily lives and forget that they can be somewhere or someone else tomorrow if they’d like. There are no limits in the grand scheme of things except the ones we create for ourselves. Traveling helps make sure I don’t forget that.”

-John

“Travel puts me out of my comfort zone and inherently breeds challenge. I’m a firm believer that challenge leads to curiosity, maturity, and growth.”

Isioma

“I use travel as an escape from daily life. Having future trips already planned brings me joy and gives me something to look forward to. I’ve never regretted a single trip I’ve taken.”

“I love to travel for a few reasons. First, you automatically become a naturally curious being. You are a traveler, tourist, backpacker, etc and even the most basic thing on a trip becomes an adventure – like catching a bus between cities. Second, you are hyper-aware of your surroundings and appreciate the beauty or intrigue of a new land and culture! Third, when I travel and then return home, I see home in a whole new light. For example, when I studied abroad in Buenos Aires and came back to NOLA, I realized there was so much more exploring of my own city that I needed to do and I was excited and motivated to do that, whereas before I was stuck in my daily routine.”

-Emmanuel  

“I travel to eat all the foods.”

– Hope

“When I think about travel, I mostly think about traveling solo. I love it because it displaces you. In a state displacement, you experience wonder, discovery, awe, discomfort. If you go with an open mind, you discover things about yourself, about others and about the world you would have not learned otherwise. It opens you up, turns on new lights so you can see and experience the world in a new way- even when you go ‘home’. We get so involved in our current environments and lives – the chance to step out and explore and experience elsewhere gives us perspective and often provides new lenses with which we can see and think about who we are, what are doing with our lives and what we care about. The whole experience is filled with all these beautiful and crazy colors and feelings.”

-Chimamanda

“I like the discovery part of it… I like to explore new things, new places, new views, new people, new everything…There are many ways to explore new things, but traveling is the most satisfactory as it is the most comprehensive way as it encompasses many elements from views to people to foods etc. I also like getting away from the routine, and the daily chores and daily work and daily life and have a kind of a break from reality if you want… On the other hand with all the new crazy security issues, travel is not so “free-spirited” anymore, as no one has to keep in mind and be aware and even worry a bit when traveling when in the past the idea of travel was to get away from worries.”

-Abdullahi

It’s fun.”

-Yinka

“Traveling somewhere new is an opportunity to really engage in being lost. You have to pay close attention to figure out what’s your place, and how to act, and how to be respectful. You start to question and reflect on your own assumptions and behavior. You have a chance to represent your home, which both makes you consider other people’s perspectives and better articulate who it is you want to be putting forth into the world.”
-Bassey

“I love the smells, tastes, sounds, sights and feelings of a place – new or familiar. I think my memories are closely interwoven with the scent of an event or a period of time so being able to catalog a place by smell helps me remember the feeling of being there. Also food. Hooray for all the food and recipes that have been passed through generations, families, and communities. I also love the feeling that I am somewhere removed from my everyday experience. It is exciting and relieving all at the same time. I love that traveling is not just one thing. Traveling can be fun. It can be invigorating, enlightening, powerful, relaxing, overwhelming, emotional or even a struggle..”

-Rachel

The anticipation of travel is always the first exciting thing for me. The sheer idea of going somewhere far away. It’s part coping mechanism, part restlessness, and part soul seeking. I love witnessing the way different people and cultures move through the world – how they interact with each other, love each other, how they make art, how they define community, what they value, what they fight for, and what they believe in spiritually. With every new encounter, you experience a new part of yourself.”

-Jones

“For me, it’s meeting new people and learning about their different way of life – culture, traditions, food. And seeing what makes each place so unique! Love finding a spot with a view that I’ll always remember about that specific trip.”

-Christopher
