Whether it's the people you meet or the things you see, traveling provides more valuable life lessons than school, mainly because instead of being told something, you experience it.

Lessons that travelling will teach you

  1. To be more patient when things do not go as planned - and it happens on every trip. 
  2. To leave your comfort zone. It's exhilarating to forget what's familiar for a bit and expand your horizons.
  3. To be more curious. Being in new territory will probe new ideas and curiosities.
  4. To appreciate other cultures. 
  5. To live simply. You can survive with very, very little.
  6. To make friends with strangers as travelling make you desperate for human interaction.
  7. ...but to also embrace your solo travel experience.  You will come home with a new sense of independence.
  8. To try new things as what you do at home doesn't always work when you travel.
  9. To think creatively. Sometimes it takes a little thinking outside of the box to get by.

  10. To find beauty in small things that you did not notice before you started your trip, like a home-cooked meal.

Thrilling and intimidating

One of the most intimidating things when traveling is making friends and connecting with locals.

But this one hard part about adventuring alone is also the most rewarding.

Ask Questions

The more curious you are, the more people you'll meet. Mostly this involves asking a lot of questions.

Try it. The worst that could happen - someone doesn’t reply and stares at you.

Follow the Fun

When you get to a new place, ask yourself: "If I lived here, where would I go?" Look for cool events, gigs, and shows. 

It’s a great way to get away from all the tourist spots and into the cool neighborhoods where the locals actually hang out.
