2. It Boosts Creativity 

For generations, artists and writers have traveled the world in order to spark their creativity. Sometimes, it’s difficult to feel inspired when you see the same place every day. No matter how many movies and documentaries you see, there is no replacement for going somewhere grand. So many great artists were inspired by creators who came before them, and it wouldn’t be possible if they didn’t visit their work in real life.

Traveling forces you to use all of your senses, and take in more information than you may have otherwise. When you travel, you will open your mind, and it forces you to change perspective in order to see other people experiencing their way of life. Sometimes, having a perspective shift is the one thing that will make a huge difference in getting a project done.

1. Experiences Are More Valuable Than Things

The last and most important reason why you should travel is that experiences are more valuable than things. Years from now, when you are old looking back on your life, what will you remember?  Most people look back on their relationships, regrets, and all the experiences that made them happy. They aren’t thinking about the things they bought. All of that money they spent to buy things they want in the moment doesn’t matter when your life is over.

Maybe you will remember the special items that you owned, like a wedding dress or something else that really stood out. However, the objects that hold the most meaning to us are usually connected to a big event, like getting married, graduation, or the birth of our child. For everything else in their life that they purchased, it all sort of goes away. If you live your life in a more minimalist way and choose to spend your money on experiences instead of things, you’re far more likely to be happy.
