Have you ever thought of taking time off your busy

and never ending routine to travel and cool off?

Many people take travelling as a hobby but how they prepare and experience it differs.

According to Seneca, “travel and change of place impact new vigor to the mind”.

Here are 5 reasons people travel;


  1. WORK

This is one of the most common reasons why people travel. When work calls for you to travel, you don’t have an option but to do so. And, most job descriptions requires employees to travel and discharge their duties at their organizations. Some always travel to a particular place while some are faced with a new place all the time. This challenge avails the traveller the opportunity to learn the language, culture and food of the various places visited.

People are compelled to travel in search of better and reliable medical treatment according to one’s choice like the Middle East and Asian medical tourism being patronized in Western Africa.

When you are bereaved or heart-broken in a relationship, taking a trip to unfamiliar places with a lot of distraction is a good therapy to have a sound mind and body.

There is a saying that you should never stop learning because life never stops teaching. Travel is a better and a first-hand knowledge of other language, culture, people, places and food around the world. Matthew Karsten said “investment in travel is an investment in yourself”.

According to Charles Schulz, “In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with”. Honeymooners take a trip to romantic destinations to get intimate and already married couples do same to rekindle their undying passion and love for each other.

Workaholics who feel stuck in their monotonous routine of everyday life can travel to ease off the daily stress of life and return with a fully renewed energy of the recreation of the pleasant locations. Most people choose to travel to a particular place where they feel re-energized while some travel to different locations in the bid to see new things. Remember the saying that “travelling leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller”.

So nice!!! I wish to travel more often now, the only time I had had the opportunity to travel, it was either a wedding or a funeral in the village or an exam in a school I choose for admission #sadface#
