Here’s Why You Must Take That First International Trip

Travelling the world is something that is at the top of every youngster’s list. Especially after movies like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Queen, people have started making a living out of travelling or just take out time for a short trip every now and then.


While there are a lot of unexplored places in India itself, if you are an avid traveler, it’s high time you already make that much awaited international trip.

Why, you ask? Well, we’ll give you not one but five reasons why you must make that first international trip.

1. It Helps You Reinvent Yourself


Traveling overseas gives you an opportunity to introspect. Experiential traveling, particularly to a foreign country, can help you re-evaluate and reinvent your life. The valuable lessons you learn along the way broadens your perspective, making you more open, and aware of new things. Especially if you are recovering or going through a major transition in life, travelling to a foreign country may help your process.

2. It Increases Your Cultural Diversity


When you travel overseas, you meet with people who come from a very different cultural heritage. Their school of thought, their beliefs, might be totally different from what you have grown up with. Learning about their culture will not only increase your knowledge but also in a way broaden your mindset as you realise there are more than one ways to look at a situation.

3. You Will Make New Relationships


People you meet while on the road become some of the most valued names on your contact list. They become places on the map to visit later on. These folks give you a glimpse outside your hometown circle of friends and force you to take in new and refreshing perspectives, and ultimately realize that everyone is the same.

4. You Will Learn More Languages


There’s something satisfying about being able to throw around a few words of some other language, knowing how to say thanks in Thai, pulling out that long-dormant Spanish to book a room in Santiago, or simply hearing a language you didn’t know existed just a few weeks before. Every language will have a new story to tell, and each more enchanting than before.

5. It Makes You Fearless


The most important thing that can come out of international travel is the self-confidence you gain. It gives you different kind of sense of being able to handle it all in a foreign land. It gives you a sense of accomplishment and makes you want to strive to dream big. You’ll gain a kind of confidence that will make you want to reach out for new challenges, and completing a trip would give you a sense of satisfaction of having planned a successful trip.
