Buying expensive clothes, jewelry and cars does not make you a greater person. Start spending your money on traveling because traveling makes you awesome. This is how it makes you awesome:

1.It makes you more social

It’s sink or swim on the road. You either show signs of improvement at making friends or you wind up alone, crying every night into a pillow. You figure out how to make friends out of strangers and get more happy with conversing with new individuals. When I initially began traveling, I was somewhat of a self observer and uncomfortable conversing with those I didn’t know. Presently, I’ll joyfully converse with strangers like we’ve been closest friends for a considerable length of time.

2.It makes you better at discussion


Travel not just makes you comfortable talking to strangers, it makes you better as well. 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 and how long they’ve been traveling. 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.

3. It makes you 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 capacities? After accomplishing so much, you’re going to feel much more confident in your ability to achieve anything you set your mind to.

4. It makes you more adaptable

You’ve managed missed flights, moderate transports, wrong turns, delays, awful road sustenance, and much, significantly more. After a while, you figured out 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.

5.It makes you more adventurous


When you become confident in your ability to do anything, you do anything. A week ago in Austin, Texas, despite the fact that I don`t like spicy food, I ate the world’s hottest pepper and some pure capsicum extract. And That is because I wanted to. What’s the purpose of life if not to break out of your comfort zone? My mouth was on fire for ages, but I’d do it again.

6. It makes you more easy-going

All those mistakes? They did something else for you, too. They made you more easy-going and relaxed. Why? Because you’ve dealt with all those mistakes and you don’t care. You go with the flow now, because if travel taught you anything, it’s that it all works out in the end and that there’s no need to stress.

7.It makes you sexier


Stress causes aging. Those lighthearted, unwinding days out and about are going to make you more confident and radiant, and you’ll age slower. You’ll look young and sexy. Unless you are George Clooney, who definitely got better with age.

8.It makes you smarter

Unless you sit at a resort drowning your brain in frozen drinks, travel will teach you about the world. You’ll learn about people, history, and culture, and arcane facts about places some people could only dream about. In short, you’ll have a better understanding about how it works and how people behave. That’s something that can’t be learned from books; you can only pick it up with on-the-road experience.

9. It makes you 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.

10. It makes 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?

Travel makes people better people. When you learn more about the world and the people in it, push your boundaries, and try new things, you become a more open, outgoing, and awesome person.
