Trip of a Lifetime’s Top 3 Reasons To Travel While You’re Young

Traveling when you’re young helps to broaden your perspective and empower your life forever. Below are the top 3 reasons to travel while you’re young.

1. Travel can help you find yourself. You’re youth is about exploring the world and all of the opportunities it has to offer; the best way to do that is through travel.

2. The people you meet during your travels will enrich your life. Traveling through a foreign country for the first time will allow you to meet people from different cultures and create lasting relationships.

3. Travel takes you out of your comfort zone. Being exposed to a completely new setting can be frightening but it can also be rewarding. It’s important to get out of your comfort zone before you get too used to it.

Nomadic Matt’s “7 Ways to Stay Motivated to Travel”

It can be hard to stay motivated to travel with the stress of everyday life. Nomadic Matt lists his 7 Ways to Stay Motivated to Travel. 

"Hold yourself accountable – The best thing you can do to stay focused is to be held accountable. Being accountable to others will help make sure that you don’t fall off the wagon.

Read books –While reading travel blogs is great, travel books are even better because they cut deep into a destination and open it up in a way a short travel story can’t. Every third book I read is about travel, and when I finish each one, I’m ready to go and explore the world.

Learn a language – Join a class and pick up a language you might use on the road. Once you’ve started learning the language, you’ll hate to waste your new skill. And the only way to use it is to travel to where they speak it! 

Take a break – If you’ve been on the road for a while, you’ve probably burnt out a bit. Travel isn’t always rainbows and unicorns, and spending a lot of time on the road can lead to burnout.
