8.Traveling becomes more difficult with age. Not just because of added responsibilities, but your health also needs to be taken into consideration. You may have more money when you’re older, but you may not be in the physical condition or have the same drive to see and experience what the world has to offer as you once did. You probably won’t have nearly the same experiences either – Things like nightclubs, backpacking, staying in hostels will seem less appealing once you get older and these are all experiences that can lead to an amazing trip.
9.Traveling will force you out of your comfort zone and improve yourself while doing so. You’ll find yourself being forced into being independent by figuring how to get around, budgeting and scheduling, all very important and essential qualities later on in life.
10.You will gain a vast amount of knowledge while traveling, however the experience will provide much more than that. The stories that come with this knowledge are almost as important.
11.Bonus: You will have achieved a personal accomplishment. You’ll be proving to yourself and everyone else that you can stand on your own two feet and take on anything that life throws at you head on.
There is a world full of opportunity out there, that are just waiting to be explored. Make sure you don’t miss your chance! Remember, the only thing that’s limiting you is your imagination.
MAKE IT HAPPEN!
