There are many reasons why people love to travel. But the most common reason is we simply want to find joy in being in a new place. The sense of not knowing what to expect and the unfamiliarity of a destination makes most travellers anticipate the unknown positively.
Why do People Travel
To break a routine. Do you know that most people follow the work, commute, TV, eat, sleep, commute, repeat pattern 51 weeks a year just to get that one week of vacation? It is like we wear an invisible house arrest ankle bracelet, and we don’t even feel it. Travelling allows us to learn new things, meet new people, and acquire people’s perspectives and not just our own letting us gain more experience.
To see a change of scenery. Have you ever noticed how your mood changes when you see a green place or white sand and blue sea after being in a cold and grey city for a long time? But it is not just the escape from the cold that changes our perspectives, studies show that even our brain synapses work better when we experience a change of scenery. We become more creative, we move more and the effect is just amazing.
To experience the real world. Many travellers tend to be more open-minded especially those who really love to travel. They easily interact with people without getting shy or nervous when asking for help. They are more open in making connections and finding lasting friendships because of the experience.
