Traveling Abroad Makes You Wiser
They say that traveling the world makes you wiser, and certainly, it present many opportunities for that to happen.
Why You Become Wiser When Traveling Abroad
Traveling abroad allows you to experience new cultures. These cultural experiences allow you to become better informed about how other people live, work, and how many of the world’s population only just get by every single day. Some countries have many more citizens than in the developed nations who live in dire poverty. However, you find that in those same countries, rich and fascinating spiritual practises, or cultural traditions thrive. Your travel experience offers interesting insights into the different ways societies survive in the world.
Traveling abroad makes you appreciative of what you have. You are able to compare other lifestyles and living conditions. You also come to see that despite their relative poverty, many societies have rich and rewarding lives because they are so spiritual, they have a strong sense of community, they have rich cultural traditions, their lives are simple and healthy – any one of these or all of them may appear to you to be much better ways of living that more well-off societies. You may come to appreciate that other factors than money can measure happiness and contentment.
Traveling also allows you to be self-reflective. While traveling you will see some amazing and not so amazing things which will change your perceptive on life. You will realise that something that you used to really stress about is not as important as you previously thought. You come to evaluate things in a different way, form a new angle. You work out for yourself what really matters to you, and what does not.
Traveling breaks down stereotypical views of people, cultures, religions as you meet individuals who defy these stereotypes.
