Unless you live under a rock, you must be aware of the fuss around travelling.Those quit-your-job-to-pursue-travel videos must have made you want to resign to travel!
According to 2016 statistics published by Trekksoft, 69% of global travellers—of all age groups—are planning to try something new in travel for adventure and new experiences. It is not just your body or brain that evolves, your soul evolves too. Chances are that you belong in this group. So, why exactly do you want to travel? Is it just because you find it intriguing and dreamy? Or is it because the internet is telling you what to think about travel? Oh, so you say that you love to explore other local cultures and talk to strangers? You say you want to get out of your comfort zone? Sounds cool! However, why on earth do
you want to explore these cultures? What does travel give anyway apart from happiness and some good pictures to post? A lot.
Yes. There are many people I have met who love travelling and exploring, but they rarely realise the real deal! Travelling is not just about happiness and a few pictures. It is much more than what you know it to be. I cannot really jot down every aspect of the benefits of travelling, but here’s an attempt at delineating my understanding of it. This understanding has sprung from my latest Deoriatal-Chandrashila Trek.
It is a journey towards you. When you travel, you apparently travel towards a destination. However, deep within the boundaries of your soul, you travel towards yourself when you set out on a journey.
You get to know yourself. Beyond your comfort zones, there lies a place where you can be above and beyond what you typically are. You discover yourself be it about how you talk to strangers, how you manage in a camp, how you feel in an unknown place, what is it like to live in a hotel and make the best use of your time, how you tackle with immediate decision-making and so on.The list is endless.
