Why People Love to Travel

Travel is the movement of individuals between distant geographical areas. Travel can be accomplished by foot, car, bike, train, plane, bus or other mode, with or without personal luggage, and is one way or round-trip journey. The word “travel” can mean many things in many different contexts. In this article, however, we will limit our discussion to travel within the United States, specifically across the border into Mexico.


No matter where you travel, whether for business or pleasure, there is some aspect of it that makes it extraordinary. Regardless of what type of travel you are doing, when you see a new place, the entire experience is exciting for at least two reasons. The first is your immediate connection to the location, whether it is your home or the new place itself. The second is your immediate connection to the other place, whether it is other people or the country itself.

In order to fully appreciate the connection, you must first understand the different forms of travel. When we refer to “travel” generally, we are talking about making physical moves from one location to another. When you talk about “non-routine travel,” we are talking about making moves on non-personal terms-for example, going to the same place every year for business or pleasure.

The experience of travelling can help people learn about new places. There is no greater incentive to go to a new place than to find out about the culture, weather, history, art, food, etc. of that new place. Therefore, the ability to travel can serve as an important tool for letting people know about unfamiliar surroundings.

Aside from the ability to let people know about non-routine living, another reason why people love to travel is because travelling helps them feel like they are on an actual holiday. The holiday atmosphere is infectious, especially when travellers enter areas of the world they are not familiar with. Some types of travel also help you relax and get in touch with yourself. Tourism creates a unique environment where people can forget their worries for a few days. In comparison, when someone comes back from a non-tourist destination, he/she is often faced with the same problems as they had before leaving: depressed, tired and lacking in mental clarity.

Finally, travelling helps build your confidence in yourself and others. When you go on a business trip or a holiday tour, you need to be at your best in order to make the most of the time you spend there. Similarly, when you go on non-routine visits to see family members and friends, you should feel comfortable and at ease with your hosts. Traveling is similar to this concept: the more you put into travelling, the more successful you will be. Therefore, if you want to go to the next level in your career or if you want to feel good about yourself, it is important to get out of the house and travel!
