Ever wonder why travelling changes people for the better? When one learns more about the world and its people, they feel more comfortable pushing their boundaries and trying new things. Having an open mind can make someone more confident, social and adaptable. Apart from the recreational benefits of travelling, it is also proven to be beneficial for physical and emotional health, as it helps people become less materialistic.
Now, let us explore socializing in the context of travelling. Despite travel being an escape from pressure, socializing is ironically rather ‘sink-or-swim on the road. You either get better at making friends or end up alone on your journey. However, the more you travel, the more comfortable you will be talking to new people. Eventually, you will learn how to make friends out of strangers.
Travel not only makes you comfortable talking to strangers but also makes you better at it. After talking to a lot of people, the same questions get boring. You learn how to ask interesting questions, ones that matter - the ones that tell you more about the person and their life in general.
After travelling the world, one would have navigated unknown cities, conquered their fears and experienced amazing things, boosting their confidence. While travelling, people deal with mishaps like missed flights, slow buses, wrong turns, delays, bad street food, and a world of other experiences. Dealing with these situations helps people adapt, enjoy and learn from all that life throws at them.
Last but not least, travelling helps a person let go of materialistic values. On the road, one learns just how little they actually need and what truly matters to them. Travel teaches one to be happier, more relaxed, and more confident, ultimately making the world seem like a brighter place.
