5 Reasons To Travel Full Time

2 min read

It is said that traveling is the core essence of our worldly life. In today’s stressful work routine, life can be pretty exhausting and that is when we all look for that one BIG BREAK. That is a vacation. A vacation with friends, family, loved one or colleagues. Some people dream of traveling all their life but are hooked to their cabin chair. Some wish to explore the world but are worried about losing their source of income. What if tell you that you can leave your hectic schedule behind to travel full-time? What if we tell you that you can explore the world without worrying about your finances? You don’t think it is a good idea or even possible in the first place? Wait until you go through the following reasons to travel full time:

  1. Different Career Choices

    The #1 reason as to why people fear travelling full-time is the risk of instability and not having a secured job. But haven’t you heard about the boom of these unconventional careers? Being a full-time traveller can open up various career options for you such as a food blogger, travel blogger, freelance photographer, and luxury travel adviser. We are also familiar with a story where a full-time traveller bought himself a free stay at an inn in Brazil for an entire week just by clicking promotional photographs of the place. So bring out your camera or creative thoughts and put them wherever you go and whatever you see on paper, web or social media. Create your stories and let the world see it. You’ll never have to worry about your bank accounts or travel expenditure once successful.

  2. Rediscovering Yourself

    The best part about travelling is that at the end of every trip you learn something new about yourself. Not necessarily a strength, but isn’t it important to know our weaknesses as well? Knowing more about yourself will make you confident. It will prompt the areas on which you need to work on. Your mind needs you as much as your body needs you. Explore parts of your personality which were hidden due to the factors of the external environment. You’ll be a happier person, that is for sure. Rediscover yourself, be in sync with yourself! You’ll see how other people start seeing you once you go through this life-changing experience.

  3. Learn New Stuff

    Visiting different places implies learning about different cultures and languages. As we all know, each country has different beliefs, language, and culture. It is not until we travel that we get to learn about so many of them. Yes, I was one of the children who learned French during middle school but who thought I’d speak Mandarin one day. Sometimes, the regional difference doesn’t even require a country’s distance, but only a few kilometres.  For example, In India 22 different languages are spoken. And these are just the major ones, the number of dialects is more than 700 changing in every village. The confidence you get by grasping so much knowledge about the world is unreal. Also, there are many historic facts waiting to be discovered by you!

  4. Meet New People

    You can call it growing your network or interacting with a diverse group of people. Travelling definitely makes you meet new and interesting people. Every person leaves a beautiful memory of them in your heart. Also, every person has their own learning and stories to share. This also adds on to the personal growth and helps to become more confident and empathetic. A few people might also become your long-term friends who will always stay in touch with you via mail or Skype. These are the NRI friends who’ll be attending your big fat Indian wedding in the future.

  5. FOOD

    Yes, we saved the best one for the last. Trying out different cuisines that to be authentically from the original place it sounds like a dream. The spices, the sweets, the baked and everything delicious can be your guest only if you choose to travel full-time. I mean what kind of Pizza lover, you would be if you never had Pizza in Italy, cooked with love. Or had the Desi, Indian, mouth-watering Chole Bhatoore from Punjab. Well, all this definitely makes me hungry. Also makes me wonder, ‘Am I really living my life?’ and oh! I can also smell the divine smell of Thai curry. So, all the aspiring food bloggers, this is your cue. These were our top five reasons to become a full-time traveller. So if are in a doubt about being one only because of not losing your steady income doing the work you don’t enjoy at all, you know what to do. Being a full-time traveller does not sound as crazy as it would have 30 years ago. Thanks to the upcoming conventional careers. You don’t need to worry about your finances to follow your dream career. All you need is the passion to travel and yes not to forget, a passport.
