I love to explore new places. I gain knowledge and insights. Coming into contact with other cultures makes me challenge my assumptions and consider different perspectives. I enjoy real-life lessons about history, politics, and art.
I think more creatively. I adapt to unexpected situations. I figure out foreign bus schedules and restaurant menus. I sleep on the floor and eat with my hands. I practice asking for directions in Spanish.
I make new friends. I sign up for walking tours and chat with strangers at coffee shops. I stay in touch through social media and greeting cards.
I relieve stress. Vacations and business trips give me a break from daily routines. I disconnect when I am at the beach with my family. I visit the hotel gym or local farmer’s market when I attend conferences.
I learn more about myself. I discover new talents and strengths when I venture into unfamiliar places. I build my confidence and courage.
I research my destination before I leave home. Anticipation is part of the pleasure. I learn about restaurants and historic sites that I want to visit.
Today, I look for opportunities to travel near and far. Each trip I take sharpens my mind and makes my life more interesting.
