5 reasons why I love traveling so much

By on 3. August 2017

The 5 reasons why I love traveling are not easy to choose to be honest, because there is just so much that traveling the world can give you. In my opinion, traveling and exploring the world is a real blessing. Lots of travelers go out and explore the world in order to only have a good time, which is fair enough. But traveling can give you so much more than that. You just need to open your eyes and, especially, if you do it longer than just a couple weeks, then it really changes your life. It will surprise you what kind of insides and learnings you will gain from traveling. Eventually it will make you grow a lot as a human being. That’s for sure!

 

 

The following 5 reasons why I love traveling so much are just a small selection to be honest, but maybe they give you a little glimpse on why I just can’t get enough of traveling the world. If you want to know what else to learn from traveling, read here

5 reasons why I love traveling – Leaving your comfort zone

The first and one of the most important ones from the 5 reasons why I love travelling so much is, that it makes you get out of your comfort zone a lot. Traveling forces you to grow out of your shoes and reach the greatness within yourself on a daily bases. You just need to get our of your comfort zone, otherwise you won’t be able to grab smal and big chances. If you don’t try out new stuff, challenge yourself and sometimes do things that scare you, then you can stay at home just as well.

You have got to leave your comfort zone to get to places like this one

The first out of 5 reasons why I love traveling so much – Leaving the comfort zone

If you want to have the best travel time ever, then you have to do things you have not done before. See the world as a playground, try out and play with it. Maybe you just learn a new language, start to hitchhike, try out a job you would normally never do or you hang out with people, who are completely different than you are.

Try out new stuff – The world is a playground

Traveling brings you so many opportunities, but only, if you overcome your fear of getting out of your comfort zone. It is just a crutual thing when you want to travel the world.

Leaving your comfort zone is crutual for progress

5 reasons why I love traveling – Traveling is a teacher for life

All the above brings me straight to the 2nd point of the 5 reasons why I love traveling so much. Travelling the world is like a teacher for life. In fact, it is the best life teacher out of all. It’s crazy sometimes how much you learn on the go. You will definitely gonna see the world with different eyes. You will learn about other cultures, ways of living, various types of food, habits of people and much, much more. Additionally you will notice a lot of characteristics about yourself, which you might have to work on to eventually become a better you.

2nd one out of 5 reasons why I love traveling – Traveling is an unbelievable teacher for life

At places like Batad (UNESCO) you get taught so much valuable stuff

5 reasons why I love traveling – Attitude change

It’s a big learning curve, which leads me directly to the 3rd point of the 5 reasons why I love traveling so much. Travelling changes your attitude upside down. I don’t know how this exactly happens, but it just does over time. Things you have seen in a specific way before, might look completely different to you all of the sudden. Traveling just broadens your horizon a lot…

Traveling the world broadens your horizon a lot

It makes you happier. You gonna become a person, that people want to hang out with. They start to see the flipside of the coin and you eventually learn to think about the really important things in life.

Seeing places like this will make you so happy

What is your purpose in life? What aims in life do you have? How can you improve yourself and do something good for the world? You will realize, that everything in life is a matter of your attitude. Everything depends on how you see the world/ life and from which side you look at things.

The world is a beautiful place – Everything in life is a matter of perspective

5 reasons why I love traveling – Making friends for life

Point nr. 4 of the 5 reasons why I love traveling so much is a good one as well in my opinion. You will make friends all over the world. It starts with a simple „Hello mate. How are you?“ A couple weeks later you might have a new friend for life or maybe just someone you travel with for quite a while.

A simple “Hello” can be the kick off for trips to Dubai with other awesome travelers

The thing is this: Often times, things happen how they are suppose to happen anyway. Meeting awesome people is a big part of that. These people are the ones, that might change your life forever. They might be the ones, that make you go to an awesome country you have never been before. Maybe you even spend time a together, which you will never forget. At least that’s what I have experienced and many other travelers as well.

You gonna make friends everywhere – Nr. 4 out of the 5 reasons why I love traveling so much

5 reasons why I love traveling – Making the greatest memories

The last point of the 5 reasons why I love traveling so much is very important to me and it is actually the one, that it all comes down to. Eventually traveling the world will ensure, that you make great memories for life. Ultimately that’s what we all want, right? We want to make memories, which we can still talk about in 60 years from now. Memories, which appear in front of your face when you lie on the deathbed.

You gonna make incredible memories like visiting Halong Bay

Stuff, which you can tell your grand children about. Stories they will listen to like it is a magical fairytail or like it’s the new Harry Potter movie 😉 I promise you, you will make so many incredible memories, that you can change others lifes with it. One day, you might tell a random person about what you have experienced with such an excitement, so that the only thing he/ she wants to do from there on, is traveling the world. That happend to me a couple times and it is the most amazing feeling ever to change someones life to the good!

You gonna visit places you will never forget

Inspiring others with your own travels is the greatest thing ever

Of course, there are way more than only 5 reasons why I love traveling, but, if I had to name them all, I would still sit in front of my laptop in a week… 😉

  • Enjoying a bit of sunlight after coming back home to Hamburg 😊
.
I just came back from Morocco today and I can only highly recommend to visit this country ❗
.
From all of the places I have visited so far, Morocco is definitely on top of my list for many reasons
.
It is no suprise that it is getting more and more popular every year
.
Nevertheless I have to say that it feels good to be back home 💙
.
I really didn't want to leave Morocco though... 😟
.
I would have loved to travel it even more, but I know I will definitely come back
.
The good thing is, there is always a next destination to travel to... 😉
.
TELL ME: Anyone having any recommendations where to travel next???

  • Riding into the desert's sunset... 🐫😀
.
Seeing the Sahara was a dream of mine for a long long time
.
When I finally realized it, I could not believe it
.
And I still can't... 🙈
.
Riding a camel for a couple hours, sleeping in a proper berber tent, having dinner and a jam session with the locals as well as watching the sunrise and the sunset was more than I ever expected 😍
.
So what does that show you ???
.
Simply that dreams come true❗
.
If you really believe in them, they will be reality one day
.
Just keep moving towards them all the time and you'll eventually arrive where you always wanted to be 💪

  • So in love view with that top view of the Dades Gorge 😍
.
And this is only the tip of iceberg... 👌
.
The drive to this place was absolutely phenomenal
.
I literally had to stop 6 or 7 times within 30 minutes to takes pictures, because the views just absolutely amazed me 👍
.
On the way there I also picked up a moroccan local as well as a german traveller, that I spent the last three days with
.
The east of the atlas mountains is absolutely worth a trip and I can only highly recommend to come here 😊
.
I also already learned something again from the locals
.
ALL of them are incredibly friendly and they always try to help you with everything you ask them, even if they can barley speak one word of English
.
And if they can't explain properly, they take you to a friend or they try to communicate with hands and feet until you understand them 😄
.
Such a lovely bunch of people ❤
.
The kindess thry have and love they spread is Definetely something to adopt!
.

  • How wonderful are the Ouzoud waterfalls??? 😍
.
I really start to fall in love with Morocco slowly❗
.
At first I had to a couple task to master but now I like this country more and more
.
Everywhere you go, you see extraordinary landscapes with stunning sights that simply take your breath away 👌
.
The ouzoud waterfalls are one of them
.
They rise up to about 110m and they are just a short trip away from the Marrakesh
.
Definitely worth a trip!
.
I am only here since 6 days and I can already highly recommend to make this one of your top destinations to travel to in 2018 👍
.
TELL ME: Does anyone know some good spots to visit along the southern coastline? 😄

  • Lost in the narrow alleys of Marrakesh 😍
.
I had a couple problems during my first two days in Morocco
.
When I arrived at the airport, the police took my drone away, because apparently you are not allowed to takes drones to this country
.
I also wasn't able to get a working navigation for the car that I have rented, so I had to sort it out in the city centre of Marrakesh, which wasn't that easy to be honest
.
Additionally I was not really prepared for the cold nights 😅
.
So it was quite a rough start
.
Nevertheless I have to say that I really like this Morocco so far❗
.
The food is great, during the day it's always sunny, the architecture is amazing and the people are incredibly friendly 😃
.
Today the REAL tour starts
.
I will leave Marrakesh and visit the highest waterfalls of Morocco in Ouzoud 😁
.
Sooo excited!
.
TELL ME: Do you have any other recommendations on what to see and do in Morocco???
.
Drop them in the comments! 😃

#marrakesh #magicplace
  • Is there anything better than a great sunset by a wonderful beach??? 😀🌅
.
I don't really know 😅
.
I have to admit, however, that I like a pretty sunrise a little more than a sunset to be honest
.
But why?
.
I guess, because a sunrise symbolises a new start 👌
.
A start to a new day
.
A start to a new week
.
A start to a new life
.
A start to whatever you want to be new
.
And that's what life comes down to a lot of times anyway, right? It's about starting things over and over again until they work out the way you want them to 💪
.
TELL ME: What do you like more, a sunset or a sunrise??? 😄

  • Portrait of a Filippino kid at Coron Island 👧
.
You guys already know that I often talk about what you can learn from travelling
.
THIS picture is the perfect example why I do that so often❗
.
Visiting the Philippines and especially seeing the local homeless kids in Coron made me learn something really valuable again
.
Even though these kids literally have nothing, they still seem very happy and they always have a smile on their face
.
The only thing you need to do is to wave, take a picture or just simply talk to them 📷
.
These kids taught me a lot about gratitude and happiness
.
Since I saw them, I try to be grateful for each and every single day, because I don't have to live under these kind of circumstances (and never had to)
.
Plus, if they can be happy with the life they live, then I can do it too!
.
Most people, including me, complain waaay to much about things that are not worth complaining about 😒
.
Sometimes it just needs a situation like seeing some homeless Filippino kids to put things in the right perspective again 🙏

  • Throwing stones around while sitting by a crystal clear swedish river in the middle of nowhere 🌲🙏
.
For me, this is the ultimate example for a perfect timeout
.
I don't know how you guys see it, but I feel that having a proper timeout once in a while gets more and more important in our modern world 🌏
.
Everything gets faster and faster every single day
.
Sometimes it's almost impossible to keep up with the pace
.
I am not saying that hustle or working hard is a bad thing (actually the opposite), but in oder to give a 100 %, you need to be fully focused and energized 💪
.
This is why I try to get my german ass to other countries as much as I can, to just simply be disconnected from the hustle and to recharge my batteries
.
For my next timeout I have Marocco on my list, starting from the upcoming sunday! 😀
.
I will climb North Africa's highest mountain, visit Marocco ' highest waterfall and ride camels through the desert
.
And all that to just simply get my head free and to enjoy life❗
.
TELL ME: How do you disconnected from daily life in the best possible way???

  • One of the moments where I felt completely free was this one 🙏
.
Driving down the great ocean road with a couple of friends .
The pure feeling of freedom I had, was absolutely incredible for me and in my opinion, that's pretty much what every person should aim for 👌
.
Only a couple percent of humans on our planet really have this privilege of being free - time and money wise
.
Being able to decide how you want to spend your day, doing whatever you want to do, whenever you want to do it, without having anyone telling you that you can't, is the ultimate goal for me ⭐
.
And until I get there I try to get this feeling of freedom as much as I can to fuel my brain 👊
.
This is also why I like traveling so much, because you experience crazy things that give you this feeling
.
Why am I saying this???
.
Because I honestly think that we all need something in our lifes that keeps us going
.
For some it's driving a nice car
.
For others it's buying their own flat
.
For me, it's living life on my own terms
.
And this is why I can only recommend anyone, who thinks in a similar way, to travel foreign countries as much as possible, because it gives you a good glimpse of best feeling in the world - FREEDOM
