Hello friends, Happy New month,

Travel is an exciting topic. Some love it, while others either hate it, are scared, or want to explore but don’t know where to begin. Whichever group you find yourself in, the benefits of traveling are undeniable. It is one of the surest ways that humans can get exposure. 

“Why do you travel?”

This is a common question that frequent travelers get asked. People’s urge to travel is fueled by different things. Here are some of the common reasons I have come across during my travels.

1. Leisure: Some people mainly travel to unwind.

2. Family Tradition: If you were born in a family where your folks regularly planned family getaways, you are likely to follow suit. Somehow that pattern becomes ingrained in your system.

3. Education: Getting an education is likely to cause people to travel. It can be within one’s own country or abroad.

4. Work / Employment: People are likely to travel because of job offers in different places. Though the current situation seems to limit this, there’s still some possibility.

5. Volunteerism: Volunteer opportunities favor travelers who don’t mind spending their time helping other communities. Most volunteer projects run between six months and two years.

6.  Love  : Laugh if you want  but some people travel because of love. I have met people who’ve crossed seas and oceans in search of love. Way to go! It can also include honeymoon and romantic getaways.

7. Medical / Cosmetic Procedures: Some countries are known for the best or cheaper medical and cosmetic procedures. You’re therefore likely to find travelers exploring these options.

8. Spiritual Trips / Pilgrimages: People searching for deeper spiritual meaning and understanding are likely to visit pilgrimage sites. 

9. Tourism: There’s a group of people who mainly travel to tourist sites. Their bucketlists are usually filled with popular tourist sites across the world.

10. Content Creation: YouTube has made it possible for content creators to crisscross the world in search of relevant content. For this reason most people continue to travel to countries they never thought they’d visit.
