Live to travel…or simply travel to live
John Steinback one said that “people don’t take trips, trips take people”.
When people go back home, they are no longer the same, because they “grow” from a cultural, social and moral point of view.
After all, if we think about it, life is nothing more than an infinite journey to discover what we do not know: places, traditions, foods, people, customs, customs, cultures, and, most importantly, ourselves.
When we travel we open up to the world, we broaden our horizons, we learn to distinguish what is right from what is wrong, to understand who we really are and who we want to be. Travelling allows us to change perspective, to look at the world with different eyes and to know how to appreciate our things more.
It also unites the world “materially”, since it allows you to have relationships between various ethnic groups and to deal with them, which is very important in the workplace.
Take your trolley and travel! But why?
There are several reasons that lead man to travel, it may be the need to escape from the usual routine, to relax, to pamper; or it is a curiosity that pushes man to go to destinations that are perhaps little known, wild, to make new adventures and to enrich his knowledge. Whatever the motivation of the trip, it is an experience that, maybe once in a lifetime, we should all have.
We learn to understand the diversity as a value and not as a problem. The mind becomes elastic and does not stiffen in the face of what it does not know.
We develop the ability to be humble. Every traveller knows that his point of view is only one of many and that there is no universal one.
We exceed our limits, the mental architectural barriers that prevented us from thinking ‘I can do it, I can do it’.
We can also test and expand our adaptability by sleeping anywhere, eating anywhere, being with anyone. And always feel at ease.
Get familiar with the beauty and learn to recognize it. Not only in the breathtaking views, but also in the little things, the most difficult to appreciate.
We understand how to communicate in languages that are not ours. One day we will wake up and realize we have our own vocabulary, which talks about travels, routes, encounters.
The list is so long, but the first lesson travelling teaches us is to make us happy. Happy to discover our adventurous side, or simply feel free, without judgments, enjoying every single moment, fully experience the journey.
“Life is a journey, and those who travel live twice”
- Omar Khayyam.
