Why you need to travel more often

Travelling – the very word has a lot shades embedded in it. The perspective differs from individual to individual. While the ones who are hell-bent to work, and are workaholic, would exemplify traveling by picking up office trips to please their bosses. The entrepreneurs, on the other hand along with the business heads would do justice to the word, by picking up indulging in business trips all over the globe to augment their turn over.

However, to common man, who is downtrodden by the rigors of the daily life would have an altogether difference meaning of the word – travel. To him, traveling means taking time off from the daily schedule and going for a long drive to his cottage in a quiet suburb and spend the weekend. Or may be for him, travelling means taking a long leave and visiting a beach and relaxing on the bean bags and enjoy the sunshine. He may also chill out in a rocky hamlet somewhere in the Oklahoma and enjoy the greenery of Aspen. Now coming to the very purpose of this page – why on earth do we need travelling more often? There are so many reasons behind it.


All work and  no play  make Jack a dull boy

So that is the old saying, as it goes. It is true that with every passing day, the struggle for survival is getting more and more intense. There is too much jostling for too little space that people race for, for better living. This struggle takes the better of us and drains us out psychologically. We start losing our intellect, temperament, and our very zeal to lead healthy life. In order to make ourselves feel comfortable, we sometimes need artificial stimulants like boozes and sedatives.  

These, in the long run, do not good to our system. Against this backdrop, travelling IS the best medicine. It helps take the mind off from the work station, and the daily rigors thereof, and helps the mind, body and spirit to relax. Hence, short trips at regular intervals go a long, long way in keeping our mind, body and spirit in a healthy state for long. This increases the zeal to work more efficiently, and give the productivity a shot in its arm. Hence, it is good from the professional point of view.


‘Your world’ is not enough

Every individual on this planet has a world that is very much of his or her own. That is the comfort zone that gives them a lot of self esteem. However, that is not enough for fine living. There a world, well beyond that, which is full of varying culture, ways of living, people from different social, cultural, economical and political backgrounds, with varying habits and habitats, and on different cuisines. The more you travel, the more you interact with these people, and know more about their cultures, habits and habitats. This experience enriches your mind and body, and refreshes you in an amazing way. It reflects in your attitude when you get back to your daily routine. Besides, this freshness gives you a new lease of life that makes all the difference.


It is rewarding when you walk out of your comfort zone

This is more applicable for those who love travelling along instead with family and friends. Sometimes, this may sound scary, more so if you are traveling to an inhospitable place. However, believe me, traveling along can be one heck of an experience. Coming out of your comfort zone and taking up the trouble to go to alien places and talk to strangers, reaching the destination in minimal hassle, getting yourself to a proper shelter, arranging foods – all these accumulate into to one ‘good thing’, which teaches you lessons and guide you to things that that are trivial and hitherto unnoticed. All these help in the making of the ‘man’ you are looking to be. Moreover, it helps you to make new friends, and who knows, help you in better ‘opportunities’ in various aspects of life!

Travel: It’s A Must!

life education

Travelling can make you more creative and original

Travelling leads us to stay out of our comfort zone for a long time. This prolonged staying out of our comfort zone can fill our minds with fresh creative ideas and make us more original in the process.

Travelling ensures peace of mind

In this modern era of cutthroat completion, we often get exhausted and stressed out. Travelling helps us to temporarily distract ourselves from things that are acting as a trigger to our stress and thereby gives us the much-needed peace of mind.

Travelling as a confidence booster

When you start traveling to various destinations frequently, you start taking responsibilities for your own actions. This gradually helps to enhance your confidence and improves your decision making power which will prove to be handy in many situations.

Travelling helps to broaden your outlook

In order to stay updated with the changing society and the world, we need to shrug off our narrow outlook and broaden it. Travelling leads us to connect with different kinds of people. This helps us to eliminate age-old prejudices, narrow-mindedness, and bigotry thereby expanding our outlook of the whole world.

Travelling leads us to appreciate our life

Life is regarded as the greatest gift of God. But, sometimes due to some bitter or heartbreaking experiences, we tend to forget this very fundamental yet very important thing. As soon as we start traveling and experience more of the world and Mother Nature, a sense of gratitude and appreciation for all the memorable and beautiful moments while traveling dawn upon us. Like this, we learn to appreciate our life and lead it without any burden of regrets.

These are some wonderful benefits of being a travel bug. So, wherever you are, pack your bags and get ready to enter the realm of traveling.

Cruise Tips

If you’re looking to travel around while always being entertained, taking a cruise is the way to go. Not only is it a good way to sightsee at a variety of locations relatively cheaply, but the cruise ship itself is usually full of things to do and delights to take in. However, if you haven’t been on a cruise before, trying to figure out everything associated with taking such a vacation can be daunting, even if it’s a short cruise. Here are a few tips to help you enjoy your first cruise like a pro, and save money while you’re at it.

Cruises seem like they’re out of many people’s price range for a vacation, but it’s important to note that there are ways to save money on tickets and the experience as a whole. First off, pay attention to when you’re booking a cruise. Ticket prices can be especially reactive to demand, so when a lot of people are taking their vacations with a cruise line, expect tickets to be more expensive. If at all possible, try and schedule your cruise when most people aren’t going to them; while school is in session, for example, many families with kids won’t be booking cruises so you can hopefully snag a cheaper ticket. If you’re not keen on tracking cruise prices yourself, there are also sites that will aggregate prices for multiple cruise lines, and even send alerts to you when prices drop beneath a certain threshold. Many of these types of sites will allow you to customize exactly what parameters are acceptable to you to go on a cruise, so you can sit back and wait for your dream cruise to go on sale.

Saving money doesn’t stop with trying to get a cheap cruise ticket. There are lots of expenses on a cruise that can be minimized. For example, what you drink on the cruise can get very expensive. Alcoholic drinks are the most expensive, being extremely limited with what you can bring on board or outright banned from being brought with you. You can help to mitigate this by searching for a cruise line that is more lenient with bringing your own alcohol (some will permit a bottle of wine or champagne), or by buying a drink package. If you plan on drinking alcohol while on your cruise, it is probably best to buy a drink package. While paying the full amount for all your drinks up front might be intimidating, it’s much cheaper than paying per drink, as the markup for drinks served on an individual basis can be extremely high. The same general principle applies with soda and even bottled water: if you can, bring your own, but otherwise get a package if available. Not having to worry about prices when you’re thirsty can make a cruise much more enjoyable than counting out your budget yourself any time you order a drink.


Roadtrip Tips p.II

Take care that when preparing for a road trip, you aren’t just looking at the parts of road travel that impact your experience. You need to take good care of your car and everything else related to it in order to minimize the chances of an accident on the road. While most other problems can be solved simply, enabling you to continue in your travels, a problem with your car can not only end the road trip, it can end up costing you more money than you have available to spend. First, and likely most obviously, it may be a good idea to get your car checked. If you think you have the necessary knowledge and expertise, you can of course give it a checkup yourself. But otherwise, it’s probably best to take your car to a professional mechanic. If they give your car the thumbs-up, then you have a pretty good chance of making a road trip without any incidents. However, when you travel by car, things can go wrong that were unaccounted for. That’s why your pre-road trip maintenance doesn’t end at getting your car checked.

After you get your car checked to make sure it’s worthy of a road trip, it’s on to the specifics of the car rather than the general aspect of readiness. Make sure you have everything you need in the trunk of your car. Most people have a tire iron handy for when you need to change a tire, but a first-aid kit is a less common item that you’ll need if anyone gets injured on the road. Hopefully your idea of road travel doesn’t merit a first-aid kit, but it’s handy to have regardless. In addition, in the case of a total breakdown on the road, you may need a fire extinguisher as well as road flares or reflectors. Finally, make sure that you not only have a spare tire handy, but that it’s in good condition and with good air pressure. If you pop a spare tire, you’ll really be in a bad spot.

It’s probably best to road trip with friends instead of by your lonesome, if possible. With other people as passengers, you can split the work of road travel with multiple people. Having a navigator read road maps is much easier than trying to do it while driving, and takes much less time. Additionally, driving in shifts keeps the driver refreshed and alert, which not only keeps the trip enjoyable for everyone, but keeps everyone in the car safer for less risk of car accidents. However, make sure to be prepared still in case of accidents. Keep your information handy in the car (especially your proof of insurance – not only will it help in an accident, but if you’re ever pulled over, you’ll need it handy), and check around for roadside assistance services. There’s not much worse than being stranded on the side of the road out where there’s no cellular reception.

Roadtrip Tips

If you want to travel, there’s scarcely a faster way than to fly. But given the rising prices of air travel, many people opt for a road trip to take in the sights and save money at the same time. Despite the price of gas, going on a road trip can be much cheaper than flying, and you can spend some time with friends getting acquainted with the parts of America that many people skip over. Additionally, there are many tips you can adhere to in order to make the absolute most of your road trip.

It always helps to be prepared when you travel, and this holds true even more so when you’re taking a road trip. You know that you’ll be hungry, but stopping every time you get hungry will cost you time and money, and will likely tie you to the more populated roads so that you’re never too far from a restaurant. You should at the very least bring snacks to tide you and any passengers over until the next restaurant on the road, but it could also be good to pack a few meals (ideally you’ll want any actual meals to be clean and easy to eat within a car – you don’t want to have to do any cooking or cleaning on the road trip!). Another way to be prepared, incidentally, is to not just do a thorough cleaning of your car before the trip but to continually keep it clean as you travel. It’s more than likely that you’ll accumulate more trash than you can reasonably clean while you enjoy the sights and attractions, but it will help cut down on the cleaning you have to do after you arrive at your destination.

Good planning for road trips isn’t just about keeping your car clean and your belly full. You also will want to keep an eye on the actual route you plan to take. Try to maintain a careful balance of highways and back roads, to get the full experience of what’s out there. And don’t be afraid to diverge from your road trip plans if need be. Occasionally, taking too many highway shortcuts can lead to you skipping interesting sights along the way, and in turn, taking all the back roads can turn what was once fun and exciting somewhat monotonous. If you’re traveling with others, you can also prepare by packing forms of entertainment. Often, people who wish to travel long distances by car opt to buy a portable DVD player with a small screen, to watch movies on the road. This can be helpful when you can’t sightsee or get out of the car, like when you’re on long stretches of road or staying up through the night to drive longer distances. Another option is to download content on your phone before the road trip to enjoy once you’re away from Wi-Fi connections. You won’t have to spend time loading it on your phone once you’re bored, and you won’t have to worry about being dependent on your phone connection if you get bored.
