Travel is not easy. With all the dreaming, planning, saving, and then taking the giant leap towards something that is out of your comfort zone and filled with endless potential problems, it’s a massive drain of resources.

For some people, traveling is not high on the list of priorities, and you may be wondering “what is the purpose of travel?”

Benefits of Traveling

In this guide, I’ve answered what is the purpose of travel and listed all the benefits of travel and the reasons why travel should be on everyone’s priority list.

Travel Leads to Vibrant Health

When I travel I feel vibrant and healthy. It’s because we tend to travel with a focus on outdoor experiences. The weight strips away and my body hardens with each new hike, bike ride, and kayak trip.

Travel Allows You To Return to Humility

It helps me to feel magnificent. Because in this smallness I am apart of something so great. My ego – that part of me that needs to feel large and superior – diminishes, and I’m left with just the part that is ego free. The true essence of peace and love.

It’s the People You Meet that Teach You Compassion, Acceptance, Tolerance

The greatest travel memories I gave usually are surrounded by the people I have met and spent time with. Sometimes it is people from my own culture, many times it’s not.

Travel allows you to see what you’re capable of

Whether it’s trying new cuisines, navigating unfamiliar transportation systems, getting to a different city, or communicating in a foreign language, travel requires you to step outside of your usual routine and take risks.

Being exposed to new cultures makes you more empathetic

When you immerse yourself in a different culture, you gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and experiences that other people face.
