Benefits of travelling . . .  How Travel Goals can create a sense of adventure in your life!

Being able to travel is one of life’s rewards. The benefits of travelling are numerous! We live in a time where, if we are fortunate to have enough money, we can literally explore the entire world.  

Experience these benefits of travelling:

Supercharge your life through travel, to . . . 

  • Experience different cultures.
  • See amazing architecture of buildings hundreds of years old.
  • Meet people who have been raised entirely different to ourselves, yet find out we have so much in common.
  • See how those less fortunate live, and we can develop more of an appreciation for how good we have it.
  • Attend events and experience things not possible in our country.
  • Eat different types of food that are authentic to a country.
  • Experience nature in ways you've never done before
  • Enjoy shopping and nightlife in places you've always dreamed of
  • Take a well deserved sun and beach vacation  
  • Experience music we’ve never heard before.
  • Visit friends and family who live in other parts of the world 
  • And so much more . . .

Life is short. Wouldn't it be nice to travel the world before we die?  If you plan your life well, ideally before the age of 30 or 40, there is no reason you can't travel the world!  Derive all of these benefits of travelling!

Achieve financial success and travel the world! 

For many people, being able to travel extensively is one of the main goals for achieving financial wealth.  Experiences, like travel, are some of life’s best rewards for working hard and achieving financial success.   

You’ll note that many of these goals overlap in that attending a major cultural event could allow you to visit an entertainment city, and accomplish a travel-the-world goal, all in one. 

When my family was reviewing this list together, we did the math to determine that someone in their twenties following this goal list would need to achieve one of these travel goals once every 5 years or so.  We were concerned there might be too much travel, but a trip once every 5 years seems like a realistic goal to strive for, especially if travel is important to you, and you are able to achieve your financial and career goals. 

Just a caution, though, that these goals will require sufficient financial means to be able to experience, and this kind of travel should never be paid through credit cards for which you can’t afford to pay the full balance. 

You can travel economically or luxuriously, but ensure you understand when you’re financially sound.   Some of these goals may require a decade, or several decades, before you are ready.
