Exploring a new place, meeting new people, experiencing different cultures and overcoming diverse challenges, these are the ingredients that make the recipe for the dish called travelling. Travelling feeds the mind and the soul with all the necessary nutrients for the overall growth of a person. One should travel as much as they can. Not only is it fun to explore new places and see what the world has in store for us, but it’s also a great form of learning and therapy. You are exposed to different roads, cultures and obstacles that teach you how to deal with different circumstances in life and leave you like a more aware person.
There are different ways of travelling and exploring places. If you want to make the most out of what travelling can offer you, then here are five types of trips that you must take at least once in your life.
1. Solo Trip
Travel bloggers around the world are emphasising the need and beauty of solo travelling. Travelling alone will be an eye-opening experience, teaching you things about yourself you didn’t even know, making you comfortable with yourself and building confidence to do things on your own. Solo travelling will teach you how to be contented with just your own company. This journey of self discovery will be an empowering one for you.
2. The Last Trip Before Getting Hitched
Call it a road trip with friends, hen or a stag weekend, you must take a trip with your friends one last time right before you’re about to say ‘I do’. Whether you plan a hen or stag do in Hamburg, Amsterdam, Prague or any other destination, just make sure you travel with your friends. We all need a few days of complete fun, laughter and blowing off some steam right before you’re settling down with the love of your life in a serious relationship. A trip with friends will refresh and rejuvenate you after all the craziness of the wedding planning and you’ll be able to start your married life with a fresh and happy mind.
3. A Family Trip
Whether it’s a trip with your parents or a trip with your children and their grandparents, a family trip should in fact, be taken more than just once in life. This is especially important if you and your family stay far away from each other, in different cities. A family vacation will bring you all together and make up for all the time spent apart. A family vacation is a perfect way to bond with your family members and build long-lasting relationships with them.
4. A Trip You Always Wanted To Take
As kids there was always this one place that we wanted to visit when we grow up. If you remember that one ‘dream destination’ you always had as a child, then it’s time to pack your bags and fly down to that destination. If you achieve this small dream you had as a child, you will get the confidence to do greater things and be fearless in doing things on your own and attain a feeling of self satisfaction.
5. A Trip With Bae
If you’re involved in a serious relationship but aren’t sure whether this is the one to say ‘I do’ to, then take a trip with your partner. It is said that you can tell a lot about a person and what your life with them will look like if you dine and travel with them. You’ll encounter so many different situations and live with them for days together, you’ll get a fair idea of your future life with your partner. So before you pop the question or say ‘a million times yes’, make sure you’re on the right page and compatible enough with your partner for a lifetime of togetherness.
Travelling with different people under different circumstances opens our eyes and minds to many different things, which we would otherwise not realise or experience. So if you want to know yourself or someone else better or just want to learn more about the world, don’t Google it, travel it!
