10 ways Travelling changes your whole Personality

By on 13. Dezember 2016

Travelling does a lot of great things to you and there is no doubt about it, that travelling changes your whole personality for the good, if you do it with your whole heart. I have changed and learned a lot of lessons from travelling. It made me a better person and try to use that every single day.

10 ways Travelling changes your whole Personality

First of all I have to say, that travelling changes most of the people in different ways. Some things match with everyone for sure, some others don’t. It always depends on what you have done, where you have been and what kind of people you were surrounded by. So the following attributes can only count for myself, but I guess many other travellers will agree on them 😉

Travelling changes your perspective on everything

The maybe most important thing that travelling changes your whole personality to is the fact that you get a whole different perspective on everything. You think differently. And you also always think twice. You can sooner or later suddenly understand other people way better, because you are able to see life from their position. You think differently about what is surrounding you and what really matters to you.

Besides that you maybe even think different about our whole world and the system that we currently living in and that continues to go on. You think different about nature, people and life in general. You change your perspective on what you want to see in life, where you want to go, the person you would like to be. Just everything! I know that is hard to believe, but everyone, who travelled with their whole heart knows what I mean.

Travelling changes so much of your personality for the good

You become more open minded

Travelling changes your whole personality in many ways and becoming more open minded is a big part of that. When you travel for a longer time you will start to open your up for other cultures, people and ways to live your life. You maybe become friends with people from countries that you have never even heard of. Probably you start to try completely different food, wear other clothes, learn a new language.

You open your mind for new places to stay at for a longer time. For new ways of travelling around (like hitchiking for example). For different types of jobs. You open up for way more you would imagine and that is a wonderful thing, because that is a part of becoming free.

Travelling changes your whole personality – Becoming open for other cultures is one aspect

You leave your comfort zone

This one is something no one can argue about. Travelling changes your whole personality, especially, because you eventually have to leave your comfort zone. When I was in Australia I lived in a car for 3 month. It worked! When I was in Vietnam I travelled through the whole country with a motorbike and nobody even really spoke English. It worked! In Thailand I learned diving. It worked! In Indonesia I climbed a vulcano, no toilette, no bed, no nothing. It worked! Leaving your comfort zone is an exciting and beautiful thing at the same time, because you learn so much, that you would not even believe it.

You leave your comfort zone

You become grateful

Travelling changes your whole personality not only in terms of new things, but also in terms of what you already have. You will see poor places and meet people, that have way less valuebles than you have. They have to build houses out of whatever they find. Playing with sand, stones, wood and rubbish is normality. They maybe even do not have clean water or enough food. They only have themselves. And that is more than enough for them to be happier.

They are way happier than we are most of the time, because there is less to care about. You start to realize, that you do not need much to be happy. Almost everyone, who travels, should already be the happiest person on earth. Why? Because you have enough money to do so and you probably come from a privileged country! And after a while you will definitely be grateful for that. Believe me…

Being grateful is one point how travelling changes your whole personality

You learn to let go

This one is hard, but it is something you will have to learn on the go eventually. Travelling changes your whole personality in a way as well, that you learn to let go of things an people. Because of the fact, that you meet so many cool people that all have a different path and go to different places, you have to learn to let go.

Otherwise it will not be possible to travel, unless you are only by yourself all the time and you do not want to make any friends. Learning to let go is a hard but good thing. You can concentrate on new things. You can go new ways. Travelling makes you realize that there just some certain things sometimes, which you just have to do! And letting go is a part of it.

Sometimes need to say good bye

You become more relaxed

You will have so many times while travelling where something bad happens or you have to wait for things. Sometimes things take really long as well. Travelling by bus within Asia for example will teach you that 😉 When I was travelling from Thailand to Cambodia I once have been stuck in a bus for 16 hours. The ride should have been taken 5 and a half. Or my 20 hour bus ride from Alice Springs to Darwin… So there is no other opportunity sometimes than to calm done, relax and just let go.

You become more relaxed and do not care about everything

You learn to focus on what you really want

This is also an important thing that travelling changes your whole personality to. When you travel around you see so many places. You get so many different impressions. You get influenced by a lot of various things. There will eventually be a point, where you think about what you really want and where your next steps in life gonna take you. Otherwise you would run around like a confused headless chicken and that is not what you want. So every traveller will some day has to sit done, think of what what they really want and make some decisions. And that will repeat constantely 😉

My dream is to be free, travel whenever I want and to inspire others to get the best out of their lifes

You become more curious

Travelling will make you more curious. That is definitely another way, which travelling changes your whole personality to. The more you try out new things, the more you get curious for even more new things. It is like a circle, which continues to go on and on. And this is a good thing, because there is so much to explore out there. So be curious!

You focus on what you want – For me, that is travelling the world

Your mental flexibility will grow

Sometimes during travelling some things will happen, that you do not expect to happen. Just like in “normal” life. You maybe can not find a place to sleep, so you just sleep at the beach. Or you can not find a place to stay for a longer term, so sleep in a car for a while. Or you do not find a job, so you start to do some cash in hand jobs like I did in Brisbane Australia. Travelling changes your whole personality so much, that you do not get bothered about all that and you just take it how it comes. Sometimes you just say “Fuck it, lets do it” and you live life to the fullest, regardless of the consequences.

Travelling changes your whole personality – You will become more mentally flexible

You become more adventurous

The last important thing, that travelling changes you whole personality forever is the cool fact, that you will become more adventurous. You gonna see life as a big adventure anyway, but you also do not let go of any chance to do something fun. I have done so many adventurous things while travelling already and I loved all of them.

Learning how to dive in Thailand. White and black water rafting, bungy jumping, mountain crossing, sand dune sliding, etc. in New Zealand. Surfing and climbing a vulcano in Indonesia. Exploring the jungle and the desert in Australia. And many many more things. Travelling just makes you so much more adventurous and you will have countless stories to tell when you are old 🙂

You try out so many new things when you travel – Scuba Diving

    I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours as of late, but I by no means found any interesting article like
    yours. It is lovely price enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and
    bloggers made excellent content material as you did,
    the net will likely be much more helpful than ever before.

  • Strolling through paradise... 😍👌🌴
.
Some places on our planet are just crazy beautiful .
It's almost impossible to describe the beauty and the feeling that you get when you walk around at beaches like this one 🌞
.
I could not say which beach of all the ones I have seen so far would be the best one, but all the beaches in El Nido are definitely top ranked 🌏
.
TELL ME: Where did you really feel lost (in a good way 😉) the last time???
.

  • Hello mate, how are you? 😀🐻🐾
.
Isn't that the cutest animal on earth?
.
What I can definitely say for myself is that they are easily the fluffiest I have ever touched 😍
.
And they are by far the most relaxed animals ever. Maybe because of all the eucalyptus they eat... 😉
.
TELL ME: What's YOUR favourite animal?
.
#koala #bear
  • The door to Angkor Wat during sunrise 😍🌅
.
I love a good sunrise! Not only because of its enormous beauty, but mainly for the fact that it's the perfect symbol for a new chance 👌
.
A new chance to improve
.
A new chance to do something good
.
A new chance to bring value to the world
.
A new chance to walk towards the right direction
.
And ultimately and new chance to get the best out your life and make great memories!
.
Great Memories that you can tell grandchildren about in 50 years from now, which will teach them some valuable lessons for life 🙏

  • A perfect example of a unique city that can teach a great lesson❗
.
Spending some time in one of the coolest and most beautiful cities on the planet made me think about what an insane level of power, creativity and endurance humanity has
.
It's crazy what we are able to do and to build nowerdays. But it has always been like this ⏳
.
Prague is a really good example for that. A city full of thousands and thousands of details, wonderful buildings and historically important monuments, all built over a course of hundreds of years
.
And the required power, creativity and endurance the people needed is something that we all have within ourselfs 🔥
.
It's not only reservated for specific people or special human beings
.
Everyone has that in him/ herself ! 💪
.
It's just about recognizing these strenghts and letting them all out... 👊 and don't let anyone tell you any different!
.
I always say this (on my website as well) - travel is the best teacher. You just need to find the true values of it and adapt them to your everyday life 👌
.
#praha #prague🇨🇿
  • What's the true value of home? 😍🍁
.
Pretty autumn views like this one from a nearby forest of my hometown Hamburg?
.
Maybe...
.
But not really. In my opinion it's something else
.
As much as I like travelling around, discovering new places, getting to know other cultures, meeting new people and seeing other types of wonderful landscapes, I just still never forget where I come from ⚓
.
Exploring the world as much as possible is great, but there is also a great value in appreciating your own Backround
.
The more I look around, the more I see young people like me, who want to escape  from their home countries, just to wander around for as long as possible with no real intent
.
I think that's a big mistake! ☝
.
When the travel bug gets me again, I never JUST travel around to say:" hey look, I left things behind and went on the next big journey. Isn't that awesome???"
.
It is in a way, but not to much to be honest
.
When I go somewhere I always try to learn something new from the journey itself, the people or the culture AND THEN take it back home with me and use for my future
.
This why HOME is so important... Because it's the base where it all starts and Without home there would be nothing to ultimately come back and adapt your new skills to
.
So always make sure to appreciate home and where you come from 👌💪

  • I can already say, that exploring Nacpan Beach was one of the most beautiful things I have done this year even though there are still 2 months left... 😉😍
.
It's always fascinating to me how fast beautiful places like this usually become mass tourism spots
.
Luckily Nacpan Beach is still quite undeveloped and therefore one of the prettiest and most pristine beaches in northern Palawan in my opinion
.
Hopefully it stays like this for a long, long time ⏳🙏
.
If you have never been, I highly recommend to make this one of your next travel goals 😄

  • I don't know about you but I absolutely LOVE adventures❗
.
You know why?
.
Because they push you, they are fun AND you LEARN something valuable from them every single time 👊
.
One of the greatest adventures I have done in my life so far was a road trip through the center of Vietnam with my motorcycle that I called "Foxy Roxy" (I know that's weird 😅)
.
When I did it, I did not know what to expect, but my goal was to have an awesome time
.
I found out pretty quickly that it's gonna be a hard challenge: many locals didn't really speak English, roads have been in bad constitution, I got lost a couple times, my motorbike broke down 2 times, I freezed my ass off in the mountains and much, much more
.
So why was this adventure great then?
.
Because I LEARNED that you have got to keep pushing even if you struggle hard. You always have to keep going. Never give up. Keep moving and don't ever stop 💪
.
That's what I did, which is why I ended up having an amazing time: I saw awesome landscapes, met the friendliest people, found lost temples and ultimately learned an important lesson for life
.
ALWAYS keep pushing towards you goals EVERY single day and never give up
.
I AM CURIOUS: What is your biggest travel lesson??? 😊

  • There is a quote that says "if traveling was free, you'd never see me again" and this quote fits my attitude a 100%❗
.
My ultimate goal is to become free one day, financially and personally, so that I can travel to awesome places like banaue in the Philippines whenever I want 😍
.
Just being free of boundaries and the 9 to 5 lifestyle
.
If I had the chance, I'd probably travel the whole planet 🌎
.
Who's with me on this??? 😀

  • One of the best sunsets I have ever seen was on Koh Lanta in Thailand 🌅
.
I just love a good sunset and I know I am not the only one... 😉
.
So TELL ME: where was your favourite sunset at? 🌎
.
P.s. I am going to London in 3 weeks. Anyone who has some tips on what to do?
