Most of us were surely amazed and even elated when the Curiosity Rover landed successfully on Mars, and beamed close-up pictures of the red planet’s terrains. We were likewise taken aback at how successful this Rover had traveled and landed on the red planet, and we could not help but feel proud of the milestones achieved by humans in this space travel. Yet, despite this amazing human exploits, the fact remains that not many people are able to travel beyond the national boundaries of their native countries. Not many of the world’s population have been able to view the majesty of the Great Pyramids of Giza, nor have they been able to bask in the magnificence of Great Walls of China. Furthermore, there are awesome places on Earth which many of us have not yet seen, and will never see, and reasons are varied as to why people couldn’t travel. It is a bit sad that this multitude of people could not even enjoy their lives through travels. Reasons such as lack of money, incapacitation, lack of time, and even different priorities, are some of the most frequently said reasons why people could not travel. Yet, with all the beneficial things and advantages one can derive from travel, it is a pity that not many people were able to enjoy and benefit from travel.
Travels can readily enlarge our consciousness and allow us to learn a lot of things. Likewise, travels let us understand and appreciate the diversity of cultures. Moreover, travels allow us to relax and replenish our strength and spirits.
Other advantages of travel are very obvious. It gives us a chance to see the wonders of the world, and also makes us reassess our convictions in the light of new learning from travel. Likewise, travels can definitely make us better persons, if we are sensitive enough to the new learning that we can glean from our travels. Yet, with all these advantages that one can derive from travels, there are still a lot of people who just view travel pictures without having actual travels. They may be imaginatively feeling the texture and nuances of those travel pictures. It would be fantastic if they are gifted with a keen imagination. However, those travel pictures will never be comparable to the real textures and nuances of actual travels.
Simple Advantages of Travels
Travel can be daunting for those who are not yet used to getting out of their comfort zones. But once one engages in actual travel, one becomes more adventurous and more open to new learning. Hence, the first benefit that you can get when you engage in actual travel is that of the expansion of your comfort zones. Faced with new and unfamiliar circumstances, you can readily adapt to the new circumstances and expand your limits. If you are a businessman, you can also see new opportunities in your travel and develop new contacts and friends. Yet, one of the greatest benefits of travel is the reinvigorating of your spirit. Additionally, you become more tolerant of different people and appreciative of the diversities of culture. Likewise, you would begin to appreciate the beauty of nature and the wonders of this planet.
