Being exposed to diversity at a young age will change the way you see the world and afterwards change your life. Because it is not only about what you learn, but when you learn it makes the difference. So, why should you travel while you’re young?
It helps you decide what you want in life. It is very common among young people not to be sure what they really want to do in live. To travel while you’re young means being in new situations and experiencing many diverse things which later can help you discover what is your purpose in life. Each person you talk to, each path you take and every city you visit will leave a mark on your future.
Because you have the time. You may never have so much free time again in your life. With age more and more responsibilities are coming so now it is the perfect moment to travel. Give your time a powerful meaning while life is still only about you. One of your best advantage right now is that you’re young in an age when traveling to other countries and continents is much easier.
To be alone with yourself. You learn who you are in the moment when leaving the only setting you understand yourself in. You learn how to love yourself when being lost in a totally different country than yours or when being the only person speaking your language. You learn what makes you feel alive, what’s comforting you, what your body and intuition are telling you.
You gain emphaty for the global suffering. When you travel, you realize how many things you take for granted. You start to relate to local people and understand their stories. Many times the result is wanting to give back to society and people who need it the most.
