If you have been putting off travelling for a while now, it is time to get packing and travel. Let us face it, there will always be an excuse to give but here are the reasons you should travel now.
It is much easier now than before. There is access to a lot of resources and you can easily plan your travel from anywhere. Just as soon as the idea of the place to visit hits you maybe in the bath, with your smartphone you can find out as much as possible about the place, how much transport and accommodation will cost. With a service like Jovago.com, you can secure your accommodation ahead and pay when you there. From booking flight to getting taxi down to your destination, there are numerous online services you can use to get the best deals. You can get it all fixed within 20 minutes on the phone while you are lounging in your room, enjoying your favourite TV Show.
Finding self and learning about others
Travel is pleasurable and at the same time helps you connect with others. Being in a new environment can be challenging. Despite the challenges, most people end up thoroughly enjoying the experience. When trying to find self, travelling is usually advised. You have enough time to actually be alone, listen and consciously make a plan. There is a lot you can learn about yourself from how you adapt to the new environment. It is also an avenue to learn how to relate with others and peculiarities in different societies.
This is one of the most important reasons to pack up and travel now. You are most likely so used to your environment or world that you have become so comfortable. One way to challenge yourself and expand your horizon is by travelling. Getting soaked in a tropical rain forest town like Ondo or making your way through the teeming crowd in Kano market on a sunny day doesn’t just present an adventurous tale but helps you gain first-hand experience of life in these parts. With travelling, you can pick up new languages, cultures and a wider knowledge of the world around you. Imagine the feeling you get from visiting Badagry, a historic slave trade route.
Adventure and the tales
You can always travel in your head or by merely looking at pictures online but nothing beats experiencing physically. You want to be there and take pictures. Gather memories that will last forever and probably be passed on to your grandchildren.From the Argungu Fishing Festival to hiking at Obudu Mountain Resort, there are a lot of adventurous events and places to visit in Nigeria. Travel gives you fulfilling, lasting experiences that you can always relive even by sharing the tales with others. If not for anything you should do it for the Vine, Instagram, Facebook and tweets.
Right now is the best time
Finally you should travel now because right now is the best time you have. Time blows pass really quick and unnoticed. I will do it next month, then the next. Before you know it, two years, four years, you have still not ventured to see the destinations. It is important to travel now because you actually only have now. Something else is likely to come up if you don’t make the decision to do it right away. It is better to travel to those places on your bucket list now and do something else later.
