There is no discounting that you learn some of the most important skills in the classroom but the lessons you learn about life when you leave your comfort zone and step into the unknown are incomparable.
You don't have to be rich to travel
Yes, anybody can travel. When you often tell others about your travel plans, their immediate reaction is' how can you afford it? It seems you have a lot of money'. That is a misconception. If you decide to religiously save certain amount from your paycheck, you can easily save a good amount for at least one trip a year.
When you are travelling around the world, things often go wrong, but still you have to keep calm. Always try to flexible and learn to roll with the punches.
Age just a number:
You are never too old to live your travelling and backpacking dreams. When you hit your 60s or 70s, you are often in a better financial position and can travel stress-free.
All things romantic:
Everytime you travel, you would discover romance in yourself. It has got nothing to do with falling in love with a person. It is all about discovering and romancing a new side of you that you have just discovered.
Your management skills improve:
Planning your travel is like crash course in better management. Whether you are planing a trip with friends or going alone, a lot of planning and co-ordination are required.
