For me, travelling teaches lessons of life in fast forward. Its an opportunity to understand your comfort zone and also come out of it.
 I mostly travel with family. And now my kid joins us too for every trip. Travelling with a young kid is another adventure in itself. But eventually they become more adaptable to changes - which is a great ability!
Every place on this earth has something new to offer - be it landscapes, history, culture, food or just its people. There is something new to learn every time you travel.

I feel travelling is also like a bunch of roses. There are beautiful bright moments. Some of it can be captured in the camera and often end up in facebook posts. But like fragnance, many beautiful moments stay only in the head. They cant be captured in a picture. Those memories are the most special. And there are underlying thorns too. Many actually! But each tough moment makes you stronger than before.
I'm into a software job stuck between work and life balance in everyday life. Travel gives me an excuse to be free from this vicious circle. I can feel lot of changes that travel has brought in me. I have become more calm, balanced, risk taking and humble than ever. I dont feel the urge for materialistic needs.

You must have heard many people say this to you. And would have found yourself wondering, what’s the fun in travelling and taking a vacation when we would be alone. What exactly is the fun in going anywhere alone?

But there’s a very deep philosophy hidden in exploring new places and regions by your own. Because by doing this, you just not find and explore certain places, hills, mountains, a good bar, and a perfect beach, but you actually find yourself. Taking a vacation alone is a very important part of your developmental growth. A significant part of you remains undeveloped without facing the challenges of world by your own.

You become responsible

When you go on a vacation alone, you are the only one responsible for the amount of money you spend, and you are satisfied as well, because you are spending all the money on yourself. The satisfactions, and the regrets are no one’s but yours.

You start believing in yourself

Right from booking air and train tickets to checking in hotels and making other arrangements, you know that you have got no one else’s back. It’s you and you alone. This teaches you an important lesson of life: there’s nothing you can’t do. Because when the need be, you’d do everything eventually.

Getting lost is important

As J. R. R. Tolkein says, “Not all those who wander are lost.” And getting lost indeed is important at times. It will take out the fear of big imposing cities with a lot of crown inside from you. You’d feel more confident and at ease anywhere you go after visiting strange places alone.

Embrace the new

You’d be surprised that how magical leaving behind family and friends for sometimes can be. There is so much room for meeting new people, making new connections, and introducing some cultural and regional diversity in your friend list. Yes, if there’s a Zindagi Naa Milegi Dobara, there’s a Tamasha too.

So don’t wait. Just pack your bags and leave for a vacation and trust me, before you return, you’d be feeling a lot more alive and grown up.
