7 Ways In Which Travelling Changed My Life

A lot of people claim that traveling is their life, but if you haven’t been bitten by the traveler’s bug, so to say, you might having troubles comprehending this. In addition to that, I have been utterly blessed with all these amazing opportunities to travel, and I am completely aware that not everyone is in this situation. Still, I confidently claim that traveling changed my life and for the better, too! Here are seven ways in which I have been transformed by my traveling experiences.

1. I Visited New Places

Since I have had quite the opportunity to travel, I have managed to visit a lot of places people dream of visiting their entire lives. I have seen the pyramids in Egypt, drank café latte in Paris, taken strolls in Machu Picchu, walked down the Wall of China, I sat on the banks of Venice, seen sunrise in London, hailed a cab in New York, roamed the busy streets of Baghdad, and many more. All of these places were new to me, and thus exotic and different and unique and special.

2. I Learned A Lot

During my traveling, I always visited as many museums as I could, and tried to see the important sights and learn the history of the place I have visited. I could confidently say that I learned more history and geography than I ever did in school!

3. It Changed My View Of The World

People cannot be put in a box, neither can places. It is easy to have prejudice if you have not had contact with people. Honestly, traveling changed my perception of people and the world, as well as the planet we inhabit.

4. I Met Different People

Meeting different people made me understand different points of views, religions, and political situations. I feel so blessed I have had this amazing opportunity to meet new and interesting people all of which have their own stories and universes. Exploring them makes me feel amazing.

5. I Have The Best Memories

I truly believe that because I have traveled as much as I had, I have the best memories. Our lives come down to our experiences and memories and when I look back I am so proud I have had the most unique and amazing experiences I can tell my grandchildren someday!

6. I Feel Like I Have Experienced A Lot

I feel like I’m much older than I really am because I have had these unique opportunities to travel and see the world. Still, even though I feel like I have experienced a lot, I am still aware that there are so many things to be seen and yet found and experienced!

7. I Have No Regrets

I regret nothing I have done or haven’t done in my life, precisely because I have seen the privileged and as well as those who are not as lucky. We are lucky to be alive and happy and healthy and if we can travel to meet new people and experience new things, all the better. But you don’t have to travel across the world to find new experiences, start with visiting the town nearby, or a local museum – you will be amazed by the things you can learn and experience in your close proximity!
