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.
