We have learnt a lot of important life lessons from school, our place of work and even from churches, but travelling can widen your knowledge on a whole new level.
Trips also have a way of compelling us to do things we normally won’t do, like start a conversation with a total stranger or even go swimming.
Check out these 5 important life lessons travelling can teach you.
Conquering fears: Let’s face it, it’s extremely nervous getting on a plane to go to an entirely different place, leaving your relative comfort zone. Trips also have a way of making us to do things we normally won’t do like drinking or eating something different for the first time.
Being humble and asking for help: At some point during a trip one is likely to ask for help, seeking directions to your destination or even where to get public transport. In all this, we learn to put up a warm smile and be polite to make all the difference.
Learn a language: If you find yourself in a place where the language spoken is not your first language, chances are high, you will pick up a few words by the end trip. At this point you’ve added a new thing to your life, which can help you in times of trouble.
To never procrastinate: The most important part of any new habit is getting started, not just the first time, but each time. Nothing brings things to the forefront better than going on a trip. From not confirming flight times and potentially missing a flight, travelling teaches one the importance of the here and now.
Be organised: travelling keeps us all extremely smarter and more organized, Between keeping itineraries straight to keeping track of travel documents and even quickly learning the route back to your destination.
