The world is your stage, as they say. It is free for you to roam, so there is absolutely no reason why you should avoid going overseas in one of your holidays.
If you want good explanations, however, check out the list below:
You can experience another culture.
Let us get a bit philosophical here. One of the foremost reasons why there is too much violence and indifference in the world is because we have a lot of wrong ideas about other people. We settle for what our friends, relatives, and forefathers have been telling us. The truth is you can never agree until you experienced how it is to be in a specific county for a few days.
Besides, learning other people’s culture is like adding more value into your existence. You begin to appreciate how diverse we are and how such differences make this world beautiful to be in.
You can break away from the boredom or routine.
Perhaps you are doing the same old thing every time you go on a holiday: camp, ride a train to the next destination, talk to people who basically speak the same language as you do or do the same things. Monotony or boredom is one of your biggest opponents as a traveler as it can cause burnout. Before you know it, you dread the idea of even leaving your home.
Though it is true that it is best to get to know more first about where you come from, you can spice up your nomad life by traveling overseas at least once a year. The activities may be the same—ziplining, climbing, hiking, etc.—but the change in scenery can already make them completely memorable experiences.
You can pursue other interests, hobbies, or activities.
Of course, countries offer a lot of attractions or activities that are not found in your area. For instance, if you want to see temples, go to Asia, especially in Malaysia, Thailand, and Cambodia. If you prefer Gothic or Renaissance architecture, Europe is beckoning, with its grand cathedrals. If you can’t get enough of surfing or the outdoors, there is New Zealand and Australia. There are a lot of huge national museums in Switzerland, while Oktoberfest is something you should not miss in Germany.
You can possibly meet the love of your life.
We can no longer count with our fingers the many love stories that started on holidays and tours. It is like Before Sunrise or Before Sunset, Letters to Juliet, Roman Holiday, and Under the Tuscan Sun. What makes it even more special is that you get to know a lot about the person by being away from your comfort zone. You can see how he deals with stress, interact with you, or guide you all throughout your travel. You can find love too even if you do not plan it. And just in case you did, you can look for a great travel companion who shares your interests and great love for travel.
