Travel is key to stress relief, anxiety, and depression. Traveling will help you discover yourself and learn about life in different parts of the world. It is an absolute eye opening experience that can only be learned in person. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but when you see yourself the scenery of fjords, the mountains, or ocean views, it changes you. Your mind opens up and you start to acknowledge things around you in more detail.
In this article, we will outline all the benefits of why travel is good for you and why you should travel the world more.
We highly encourage you to visit other countries where life is very different from the one you are used to. You will see that the world you are familiar with is viewed completely differently on the other side of the Earth. Different food, values, traditions, and even religion. Religion plays a vital role in shaping society’s culture and decision making. Travel and learn more.
Experiencing other countries and their lifestyle is only possible by meeting local people. Thus, creating meaningful and long-lasting relationships is another benefit of traveling the world. These places will become not just a memory, but a place where you will want to come back again. When it comes to picking your accommodation, we highly encourage you not to book with the well known “big hotel chains”, but to choose small, independent, and family-owned accommodation properties. Because in the western hotel chain you won’t get personal service and care.
You will be just another tourist alongside over 150+ staying in. If you choose family-owned B&B’s or owner-run boutique hotels, you will find a personal touch in service, outstanding homemade local food, and the best advice on local travel. We also guarantee you that if you come back a year after to the same rental, you will have the same people serving you. And the relationship that you will create with the owners will be more or less like friendship. Snezny handpicked all these special hotels run by individual and independent owners for you to create memories lasting a lifetime. Browse our portfolio here.
Another reason why travel is important as it helps with problem-solving and planning. If you are an office 9-5 worker who is used to the same routine of having early coffee in the morning, lunch in the afternoon followed by another coffee around 3 pm, then traveling abroad will put you out of your comfort zone. When you book your holiday, most of the time it’s for a week or 2 weeks maximum, so planning how you will spend these weeks is crucial, as you want to make the best of it. Planning your commute, accommodation, sightseeing, food, etc, will help you uncover the skills you never knew you had.
Another way to discover yourself is to try to travel alone, at least once. It is empowering, it boosts your self-confidence and gives you a grip over your own life. Remember that time when you planned to go somewhere with your friends and then they canceled the trip last minute? No one will cancel on you now. You are in control.

For some people travel is all about learning new languages or practicing the languages you learned in school or using self-learning apps like Duolingo.
Overall travel is all about the adventure. Even the quietest introverts have this fire in their soul that’s craving for some spontaneous adventure. It is also a great way to collect interesting stories to tell.
In rare cases travel will help you move forward. Let’s say you are in the middle of changing a job, university, school, or even a relationship. A spontaneous trip will make your mind at ease. It will take you away from your current busy life, give you time to focus and rethink your decisions. And after the trip, you will be relaxed, full of energy, and back in the ring to tackle your life issues.
And finally, it makes dreams come true. This is our favourite reason why travel is important for you. How many beautiful places have you seen on Instagram, Youtube videos, or Blogs? I’m sure you are dreaming of visiting at least one of them in your lifetime. The only question is: when are you going to make it happen?
