Does travel make you more awesome

Travel is something that makes you not only a better human being but a way cooler one too. The kind of person people gravitate toward and want to be around.

I think travel makes everybody a more awesome person.travelling-sign

How does travel helps you?

More social – It’s sink or swim on the road. You either get better at making friends or you end up alone, crying each night into a pillow. You learn to make friends out of strangers and get more comfortable talking to new people.

Better at conversation – Travel not only makes you comfortable talking to strangers, it makes you better at it too. After talking to people all the time, the same questions get boring. You start to even bore yourself. After a while, you don’t care about where people are from, where they are going, how long they’ve been traveling, and yada yada yada. Those kinds of questions don’t actually tell you anything about the person. You’ll get better at small talk and how to ask interesting questions — the ones that matter and tell you more about the person.

More confident – You’ve traveled the world. Hiked Mt. Everest. Dived the Great Barrier Reef. Wined and dined that beautiful French girl in Paris, navigated unknown cities, and conquered your fear of heights. In short, you did awesome things. How can you not be more confident? How can you not be sure about your abilities? After accomplishing so much, you’re going to feel a lot more confident in your ability to achieve anything you set your mind to.

More adaptable – You’ve dealt with missed flights, slow buses, wrong turns, delays, bad street food, and much, much more. After a while, you learn how to adapt your plans to changing situations. You don’t get mad, you don’t get angry; you just alter what you are doing and move on. Life throws you curve balls and you hit them out of the park. Why? Because you’re awesome like that.

More adventurous – When you become confident in your ability to do anything, you do anything.

Sexier – Stress causes aging. Those carefree, relaxing days on the road are going to make you more confident and radiant, and you’ll age slower. You’ll look young and sexy. Unless you are Tom Cruise and getting better with age.

Less materialistic – On the road, you learn just how little stuff you actually need. You’ll realize that all that crap they sell at the mall is pretty useless in leading a truly happy life. Coming home, you’ll find yourself a minimalist simply because you realize what you need to live and what you don’t. As they say, the more you own, the more it owns you.

Happier – Travel simply teaches you how to be happy. You’ll become more relaxed, more confident, and see the world as a brighter place. How can you not be happy about life after all of that?

How many successful travelers, hitchhikers or enthusiast have you seen with these qualities? Probably, all of them, you should also possess these in order to get excellence in your adventuring traveler life, because being outgoing, funny, social, happy, confident, and smart are all qualities that make people more successful in everyday life.

  1. All of these are true, especially the social confidence and adaptability! I was never the type of person to randomly strike up a conversation with strangers until I started traveling.

    Couple of my favorite experiences:

    At a bar during a road trip, I met a group of older guys from England who were traveling the world. They had never tried Fat Tire beer before and they were getting sloshed on it. We sat there and talked until they shut it down for the night.

    Another time was outside of a hotel. At the time, I was vaping before most people knew what vaping was. I had a mod called the Magneto. It was a giant silver beast. A gentleman took notice of it and wanted to try it. Turns out, he was a doctor from South Africa, working on a local military base. He had never seen a huge vaping kit like the one I had and he was fascinated by it! That conversation resulted in many others during my stay. Good times!

    1. Gosh! Really! Your stories are amazing man, i appreciate you sharing with us. And yeah i beleive, travelling does open up many faces for an individual which were not even known to him.

      Same incident did happend to me once, i was out in kasol, which is actually a place to get really really high.😅 So, i was out sitting near a running river, when bunch of old guys came up to me and asked for the ‘J’ i was smoking up. They actually had a bad day, and did’nt had sufficient money to go through the struggle. We also sat there and talked until they shut it down for the evening. Really, remembarable evening spended.

      This is what i am talking about , you travel and you have stories to talk to, memories to remember and the best part, your fresh new face opens up on every single trip you make.

      Glad, you commented mate. Keep supporting your fellow blogger friend. 🖤
