Why Travel is on Our Wanderlist

By design, travel is a constant in our life. It’s how we regenerate and reward ourselves given the chosen pace of our daily endeavours. It’s also a much treasured time to be totally alone with our thoughts, whatever they are. It gives us an opportunity to turn down the volume on daily life and pause for effect.

We love living a life fully lived. Travel gives us that. A full sensory experience.

And yet, it is so much more than that.

It makes us happy. Marilyn Tam, author of The Happiness Choice, nailed it when she said “‘Travel expands our capacity for wonder, joy and appreciation of the amazing diversity on our lovely planet. It makes me very happy indeed.”

It is our educator. It allows us to experience the natural, cultural and man-made wonders of the world. It continuously forces us to step out of a comfort zone – a great confidence-builder. It also keeps our ever present critical ‘judge’ in it’s place.  Stop. Pay attention. No complaining. Look at how lucky we are. The ‘judge’ is not joining us on any journey.

It is also our reality compass.  We equally love coming home. We appreciate family, friends, and loved ones more. We appreciate the comfort of mundane routines. We find a newfound respect for the life we often wish to escape.

There are so many reasons why travel make us happy, and after you have read the 11 Reasons Why Travel Makes You a Happier Person by the Huffington Post, I am confident it will be on yours.
