Hey guys! I’m going to get a little personal on this one 🙂
One of the many reasons I enjoy writing for this blog is because I LOVE traveling. I don’t get to travel as often as I’d like (thanks a lot, responsibilities… *side eye*) but whenever I get the chance to go on a new adventure, I’m in there like swimwear. I’m thankful to my parents for instilling in me the importance of travel; they took me on my first trip when I was only a few months old. By the time I was two, I had been to Dallas, Oakland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Natchez, and New Orleans. I always feel so grateful to them for taking me places with them. I know that traveling is an extra in life and not everyone is afforded the opportunity but when that opportunity presents itself, I firmly believe that you should jump on it. And if you like to keep costs down, get a group together and let Preferred Motorcoach Transportation take for the ride!
Trust me, there are so many benefits that come from seeing the world beyond your own front door. For starters, traveling allows you to meet new and awesome people and see new and awesome things. So often we become accustomed to our surroundings. When you travel, you open yourself up to new experiences by stepping out of your comfort zone. You visit a local coffee shop and meet a new lifelong friend simply by striking up a conversation with someone you never would have otherwise! You also get an opportunity to see and experience life through the eyes of someone with a different background than yours. You can take the time to learn about a different culture, taste foods that you don’t have at home, and experience all the local fare.
Traveling also gives you time to take a breather, so to speak. You get the chance to escape your reality and enter someone else’s. You’re going through life, feeling mundane and bored; you need a change of scenery and time to reset. Enter: VACATION! Travel gives you an opportunity to kick back and relax in a brand new (or old favorite) location. Whether you love the tranquility of the beach or the hustle and bustle of New York City, it’s up to you and your choices are truly endless. So, get out there! See the world!
