7 reasons to travel: because traveling is living!

Although I indeed like to write about travel to help other people when visiting the places that have amazed me, I admit that what fills me the most is inspiring writing. It is very good to provide data, prices, forms to get to the places, where to sleep and eat, etc. But the best of all is to encourage the reader to go to that site. Create in him the emotion, the anxiety, the need to travel in search of adventure or, at least, to get out of the routine and launch into the unknown, whether for a week, a month, a year, or a decade.

Twice have I had the urge to emulate one of my childhood heroes: Sir Phileas Fogg. Jules Verne's character was for me a lion, accompanied by a cat and a mouse on their adventures around the world. A very elegant lion, all be said. Blessed cartoons of the time. I did the first round the world in 2003-2004, the second in 2011, and in 2008 I spent 7 months touring South America. 

They are different trips, where you try to absorb different landscapes and cultures in a limited time. Or not. Because there are people who never return and become nomads. I think you won't know what kind of destination awaits you until you have the experience, but deciding to embark on an adventure is not easy. Our society is established in a way and what you are going to do breaks many of the established rules. If the idea of ​​a trip like this (not necessarily a trip around the world, but one that involves leaving things behind and spending months on the road) haunts your head but you don't dare to take the step, here are several reasons that I hope they help you jump into the void of adventure:

1.-Don't worry, on your return everyone will remain the same

You are used to seeing your friends, or girlfriends, regularly. You feel very attached to your family, your football team, your coffees or beers with them, your Friday dinners ... And you are afraid that, if you leave for a long time, when you return everything has changed and you feel like a stranger. It can happen. But the one who will have changed will be you, not them. However, the most common cause is that your change is not so great that you no longer appreciate those little things in life that previously filled you. They will all be the same as when you left.

2.-It is something you will never forget

The one you are going to do is not a common trip, but an adventure that will take you to face, for months, the unknown and yourself. You will meet people from different countries, origin, social condition, culture, etc. You will see landscapes of all kinds and you will run adventures and misadventures that will be burned into your memory. If all of them have a happy ending, it is something that one day you can tell your children and grandchildren.

3.-It will help you to know yourself

A long journey around the world is not only an external journey but also an internal one; you will find yourself in many extreme situations that you are not used to. Some will be negative - long waits to catch ramshackle transport vehicles, unbearable hot, cold, or rainy days, illnesses - and others positive - places that catch you, people you can fall in love with - and all of them will test your will and form. of being. You will discover aspects of yourself that you did not know and the trip will help you shape your personality. You will almost certainly improve.

4.-A good way to cut with the routine

The schemes of today's society mean that, on many occasions, we find ourselves immersed in a routine that has us annulled. Most of the time we don't know how we got to this situation and we are so caught up in it that we don't contemplate another way of life. Routine can indeed be very good and make us happy, but, even so, it never hurts to risk a little and see, for a while, what is on the other side. If your routine is one of those that makes you unhappy, then there is no longer any doubt. Hang your backpack on your shoulder and go to see the world and live life. I'm sure you have nothing to lose.

5.-Open your mind to other cultures and people

Unless you are a true halter as a person, there is a great truth that can be applied to almost any trip: traveling opens your mind and makes you more tolerant. When you travel, you come into contact with people who profess a culture very different from yours. To enrich it, even more, the customs that you will find in the tropical forests of Southeast Asia have nothing to do with those that people who inhabit that same type of forest in South America will have. And what to say about Africa, my great weakness that makes my soul and thoughts travel there almost daily. 

 Try not to run too much. Stay in each place for a while and mingle with the locals as much as possible. The landscapes can be incredible but in the end, what is burned is the experience you have had with people.

6.-Give a change to your life

Many reasons may lead you to need to make a radical change in your life. A job that makes you feel miserable, a heartbreak that has broken your heart for the umpteenth time, the feeling of knowing that there is a lot of worlds out there and the time has come to discover it ... There are reasons of all kinds. In my case, a benign tumor at the age of 25 woke me up from my lethargy. All the doctors thought it was cancer and I felt lucky when they told me they were wrong. Even to this day I continue to deal with the physical consequences that this tumor left on me, but everything is bearable, I was not unhappy with the life I led in Alicante, but I always had an adventurous inner voice that I kept longing for. . Thanks to this episode in my life, I listened to it.

Don't be afraid and break the deck. It is a step that usually costs but thinks that, if you are mired in a hole of unhappiness, any change can only be for the better. In this case, I assure you, it will be a million times better.

7.-Simply, because traveling is great

Well yes, why are we going to deny it. This statement does not apply to 100% of the population, but it applies to a large majority. When things get bad at work, you look away from your computer screen and imagine yourself in a beautiful part of the world where worries cannot reach you. When you travel you disconnect from problems, you meet great people, you enjoy spectacular landscapes or interesting and historical cities, you taste dishes of tasty and different cuisines, you experience ... You live. The human being was born and evolved as a nomad and it is something that was burned into our DNA. To move is to evolve and to evolve is to live. Traveling is living. Well then, what are you waiting for to hit the table and make your dreams come true? Come on, I'll call you a taxi to go to the airport,  but don't forget first to book a cheap flight to any destination you've chosen, the rest you can find along the way.
