The routine is tiresome. The homemade food is tasteless. The simplicity of routine life surely lacks lustre. We have a thousand reasons to state when we are asked why we need a break.
But here is more. Here are some reasons why you must definitely take up the much-awaited travel expedition.
To Widen Your Horizon
Till you get out of your home, you actually live in a shell and know very little of what is in store. The world’s changing topographies, unique cultures, diverse races, varying languages and mystifying cuisines can all be known to you once you get out of that little shell of yours. So, it is time you pack your bags for the much-awaited expedition without any delays.
To Explore New Cuisines
If you are a foodie who has never tasted food beyond the streets of your city or your favourite fast food joints, buddy you are missing a lot in life. Get out and understand how the flavours change with the borders. See what spices and garnishes define the cuisine of each state. Know what is the characteristic aroma and flavour of your nation and how it differs from the neighbouring state.
It does not matter whether you explore places within your nation or whether you go travelling abroad. Travelling always offers chances to explore unique tastes and flavours. In Maharashtra, you will find impeccable seafood delicacies and tasty snack items like Vada Pav and Bhaji Pav. In the meanwhile, the flavours of the neighbouring state of Karnataka are quite different as they about in South Indian delicacies and excessive use of dry coconut and local spices.
To Relax and Rejuvenate
If you think a holiday from office will help you forget your tensions at work, we can suggest a better alternative. Go for a travel expedition to a nearby place that is bountiful in natural beauty. Explore the flora and fauna in the locality. Breath the fresh air and keep your mind close to nature. There could be no experience so relaxing and rejuvenating as a trip to a place with panoramic views.
A holiday in the midst of the busy city does not help you escape from calls, mails and social media updates. So, turn off your gadgets and head to that place you always wanted to visit. Forget everything about the busy life for just one day and see how it helps you.
To Make New Friends
Most people have a very different perception about friendships, all thanks to social media and internet. Meeting people, speaking to them, understanding more about their views of life and interacting with them helps you get in touch with some real friends. These are friends formed through experience and thus are true in their commitments. Making friends during travel is sure a great benefit of exploring new places.
