All of us have different reasons why we travel. Some of us do it for work, for pleasure, or a mix of both. And it could be something else like taking a sabbatical somewhere far away for varied reasons. Whatever the purpose might be, traveling leave us with experiences and sometimes life lessons that change the way we view things.
Most of us live such busy lives that we rarely find time to take a break from our daily routines. For many, work eats up a huge chunk of everyday life. We work to afford the things we need as well as the ones we think we do. The more we think we require for a happier and more fulfilling life, the more we work harder so we can afford anything money can buy to achieve it.
A great thing about traveling to an unfamiliar place is that it allows us to live life with nothing but a few possessions with us. It makes us choose which essentials to bring with us. This provides a fresh perspective on things we can’t live without. We learn to make do with what we have and find out that life isn’t as difficult as it may seem when we own a few things.
This is probably why some of the most well-traveled people in the world do not care much for accumulating material possessions. And when we really think about it, it is much easier to go through life with fewer things to carry or worry about, literally or figuratively.
