Travel Goals: Traveling Outside of the United States
Before I talk about travel goals, let me add that I strongly believe that “traveling” the globe should definitely be on our bucket list. For those that never thought about traveling, I must say that you’re really missing out on a lot of things that you can learn and the opportunities that’s out there. You may not realize the true value of traveling outside of your own country.
Why You should have travel goals?
In order to truly experience life’s best, you have to be willing to step outside of your comfort zone and start exploring other people’s views. Let me begin to ask you a simple question. How many people do you really know? You may know a lot of people through school, college, work, church, going to a store, or events. Keep in mind that the most common factor is that everyone is from the same place. You will never really get a true experience of the whole world.
The moment that you decide to get on an airplane and I don’t even care where you decide to go, you will soon realize that you really did step into another world. You will notice that people act completely different than in the United States. Many countries have all kinds of traditions and that’s something that you really have to open up your mind to. If you can really learn the culture and be able to interact with all different types of people, you’ll be expanding your knowledge and yourself for the better. You will also learn to appreciate a total new culture and have a much greater sense of the world as a whole.
If you drive down to Mexico, you’ll quickly feel like you’ve stepped into another world. People act differently in different countries and have all sorts of different traditions. If you learn to interact with different types of people, you’ll be expanding yourself for the better. Better yet, if you learn and even take part in their traditions, you’ll start to appreciate a new culture and have a greater understanding of the world.
I really believe that one you begin to break free of your limited thinking and start traveling, you will enjoy it and have favorite places to visit. Who knows, you may actually find a place that you really like and even consider moving there. My advice would be trying to learn the language. If you can master that, you will begin to feel like you’re a part of them. You will feel accepted, liked, and I can promise you that you will have found a new home with that country.
Traveling that globe has other benefits as well. I can say this off that bat that simply by visiting other countries; you’ll get to see familiar landmarks that you probably have seen on YouTube, movies, television shows, or even read in magazines.
Once you start traveling the globe, you will start to appreciate a lot of things in life. Even when someone speaks about countries overseas, turning on the news, or watching a video about a certain country will become a different experience because you actually been abroad and experienced it first-hand.
Okay, so what are your travel goals? What are some places that you had in your mind to visit?
