10 ways Travelling make someone a better ‘loving and caring’ person
“All journeys have a secret destination of which traveler is unaware”.
Traveling is a kind of being in love. People often ask me many times how travel has changed me. I would like to admit that travel has made me a better and well-rounded person. Before I had started traveling I was a lot more an introvert and wasn’t having much interest in communicating with people and mingle with those who are not known to me. Nowadays, I feel glad while talking to people, no matter where they come from or where I meet them. It is those changes that came in my life and then I began this traveling blog.
In fact, people often tell me, I have changed myself over time. If I could analyze myself before I began the journey and compare it with the person who I am now, I could most certainly say that I have become a better human being.
Traveling makes everything a lot more incredible, let us discuss, how?
Travel is the most direct way of throwing yourself in the deep end and realizing what life would be like if no one is there with you to whom you were relying on earlier. I learned how to take difficult decisions and how to trust myself. Sitting at home, I could make decisions related to household or related to the office but while traveling I learned to choose a new life each time. Everything changed each time. To have a broader perspective of life, I travel and travel more and Write my journey in this Traveling Blog.
2. Life has Problems that are way different from mine.
Everyone has a plethora of problems, no one is free from some sort of misery. What I learned from traveling is that there are people who live and stay happy even without basic necessities. There are others who don’t even know what it is to live in Luxury. They don’t have hi-fi aspirations. Education for them is just a medium to be able to read and write the language. There were a few who saw me in my sunglasses and boots and believed I had come from ‘Bollywood’. A smile on their face made me a stronger person.
Whenever I decide to travel alone I have two options: making friends along the way and at the destination (if not close friends) or doing the entire journey as a single soul and eventually sobbing on the pillow in my hotel room. I choose the first option. Traveling teaches me to be social. Sociability implies to get a chance to interact with people having own different social and cultural background, but what’s more interesting is that I still find heaps of things in common.

I found myself in many disparate situations, for example, from sleeping in a city’s best apartment to sharing a room with 20 people in a hostel dorm room. I missed trains and flight connections. The flight being delayed at an airport where no one understood my language. Weather in different state or country extreme than what I was adapted to. A different taste of water and food. These are just a few of the character-building type of situations that I encountered, but no one would if they don’t travel. The more you travel, the more you will be exposed to unpredictable events. When you learn to be more adaptable, you don’t act in an aggressive manner. Instead, you start dealing with a situation.
When you are out there exploring the world, whether you like it or not, you will end up learning a lot of new things which helps you to gather knowledge about the people, history, and culture of the places you visit… But most importantly, you will learn a lot about the world and what ‘culture’ means, and how we are extremely different, yet so very similar at the same time. That’s something which can’t be learned through books but can only be grasped with on-the-road experience.
6. Less Necessitous/ Minimalist:
Across the world, while you are traveling, you will get an idea of carrying a stuff (in terms of clothes etc.) sufficient for a particular round trip.
Expedition teaches simply how to be more cheerful. I have become more relaxed, more confident, and I see the world as a brighter place. How can you not be cheerful about life after all of that? This Cheerfulness made me travel mor ein India and write this Traveling Blog.
After getting an experience in traveling, we not only accumulate indelible moments but also learn to appreciate small things and usage of our time into some productive work. Thankfulness is the beginning of gratitude. In other words, we can say that Gratitude is a completion of thankfulness.
9. Adventure Time:
Whenever I get a chance of traverse to a new destination then I get ready within a minute and step out the door for my new experience. If I not travel, I would gladly spend an extra hour having slept or on social networking sites browsing the futile information (though I do that too), but now my first priority is to spend time in some innovative tour.
10. Never say Goodbye, life has endless opportunities:
A family becomes more than just blood. Never say goodbye to the people you meet and the places you see. Cherish the new families and homes you’ve gained. I keep in touch and look back with great memories from time to time.
Above all, Via This Traveling Blog I learned how to love and be loved in pain, happiness, with and without power and money.
