"One's destination is never a spot, but a brand new method of seeing things."

-Henry Miller

Traveling is merely a brutality of humanity, it is once we travel that individuals see things for what they're and not how we imagined them to be. Traveling also lets our imagination run wild without expectations, it lets us see things from a new perspective, minus the alleged prejudice of the world. And while this appears to be a sufficient reason traveling, many continue to be naïve to the idea of traveling.

But just as much are left at nighttime to wonder and wander, some are out there exploring and enjoying what the entire world has to offer them, for it is in that brief moment of youth that individuals can truly experience life, as we all know it.

Now the question of many remains, "Why Should I Travel Young"? Personally, I could provide you with a hundred, even a lot of reasoned explanations why you must travel when you're young but if you're want to see the entire world begins and ends with your "Need to See the World" then I'm afraid no quantity of reasoning would suffice to convince you to pursue that which you want.

You see, traveling as much as it is a questionnaire of recreation is also a commitment, a vocation for many, but ultimately, it is really a responsibility. A responsibility you need to be willing to take onto yourself. Many people claim that the young are lucky to truly have the health and the wealth to see the entire world but what they cannot realize is that the young in many cases are distracted, deceived and sometimes, deluded.

So if you're one of the young'uns who wish to unearth the world's greatest places and learn life's most valuable lessons, but are afraid to produce it happen, read along, maybe I could convince you traveling as you still have the gift of youth.


  1. Traveling teaches you a sense of adventure- Don't quote me on this 1 but predicated on my experience, traveling enables you to have as much as fun as you need without having to worry of what other folks will say about you. You don't have your peers or parents to warn you and judge you, so you can be young, wild and free. Life can be an adventure and traveling lets you experience that.
  2. Traveling teaches you to be compassionate- Other than the photos, the souvenir and the life-long memory that traveling provides you with, it also edifies you of the true situation and teaches you to care for other folks, sometimes not of your personal kind.
  3. Traveling enables you to be culturally diverse- If you were to think traveling is about sight-seeing and marveling at the wonders each country has, then you're right. But there's also something more important that traveling teaches us, it we can be culturally diverse. Once we travel, it is very important that individuals follow the neighborhood practices of the country/destination we are going to. Since the old saying goes, "Respect begets Respect" If we learn to respect and even appreciate the culture of other nationalities then we be much more alert to our own. This is the mutual benefit we get from traveling.
  4. Traveling makes you more appealing as a person- they claim that probably the most attractive people on the planet are those who have observed it. Would you agree? I do. It is because of the invaluable and immeasurable life experiences we have with your travels that make us an improved person, and once you feel you're better, you feel more attractive.
  5. When you travel young, you travel more- let's face it, we're all bound to grow old and lose our health. But while we're young and at the peak of everything, it's best to make the most of it and start traveling, all things considered, you're only allowed until your 30s to hike a mountain or ride the rapids of the river.
  6. Traveling makes it simple to produce friends- if back at your hometown you tend to cling to the same number of people bound by a circle of friendship, then maybe you must travel more often. Traveling has been proven together of the best ways to gain friends and build bonds, all things considered, you're all strangers to one another at one time but because of your common interest to see the entire world, you're bound because of it as well. And understand this; wouldn't it be nice to own friends in every areas of the entire world? That might be way cool, way cooler than your friends back home.
  7. Traveling makes you an improved storyteller- You may not understand this now but when you have kids or grandchildren, you will. Those who travel young do have more opportunities to experience everything there is to traveling. With the many countries that you've visited and you will end up planing a trip to is really a story waiting to be told. Traveling provides you with things to share over breakfast, lunch or dinner. When you travel, you'll do not have trouble thinking about a topic to fairly share; as well as you'll keep everyone with your story.
