There are so many different types of “travel”: “Vacation” travel where you spend all of your time staring into the sunset at luxurious boats, “business” travel where you are defined by schedules and justifications for the trip, and “adventure” travel where you get to explore and gain new experiences. Whichever you end up doing, make sure to find a little bit of time to really enjoy yourself. By traveling, you can gain appreciation of the life of comfort, luxury, and safety you have around you every day that many people in developing countries do not have. You can truly appreciate what you have, but immersing yourself in a place that is less off than what you are used to, it will really help you appreciate what you already have. Traveling gives you a bigger sense of patience that you may not have known you had in you. There are many language barriers and new cultural norms in other countries that you will have to deal with if you decide to explore a new country. These things require patience in order to make your trip more pleasant. Those around you will admire the effort you take to listen more.
Wisdom is something you will learn along the way because you are constantly making decisions and solving problems, which will give you plenty of experience and wisdom. While out meeting new people, you will discover new ideas and approaches to doing regular things and solving problems. You can even apply these things you learned to your life in general or to give advice to others. You will learn perspective by seeing hundreds of new viewpoints. Traveling can be scary but you can truly learn some new perspective by being in situations so utterly different than you are used to. It will really help you become stronger as a person. Meeting people while traveling is the best part; you will find friends that will make your life so much fuller. Life is better when well-traveled.
