Stuck In A Rut? A Travel Adventure Is Just What You Need Right Now!
Meeting new people can give you a fresh perspective
Whether it’s a person you chatted to briefly on a night bus, a local taxi driver or a new friend you travelled with for weeks, travel is all about the people you meet along the way. Travel can help you connect with like-minded people but you’re also guaranteed to meet plenty of people who are completely different from your usual crowd. These new and exciting people are exactly who you need to help you escape the feeling you’re stuck in rut. New friends will encourage you to try things you’d never consider before or give you a fresh perspective on life.
Travel gives the confidence boost you never knew you needed
Leaping out of your comfort zone and exploring a far-away country is a guaranteed confidence booster. If you left home feeling tongue-tied around strangers chances are you’ll feel a lot more comfortable striking up a conversation with new people after making new friends on your travels. Travel not only boosts your social skills but can also give you the confidence to tackle other challenges in life, however big or small they may be. Once you’ve found your way around a country that is totally different from your home, or spent a year abroad on a working holiday, challenges such as giving a big presentation at work or taking a new job in a different city won’t seem so difficult.
You might find a new career…
A working holiday is the perfect way to take a break from your career or studies and explore new career paths. Temporary jobs and internships abroad offer the opportunity to try exciting new job roles with minimal commitment. You’ll go home with new skills and a more varied and interesting CV. If you have just finished studying you can use a working holiday to find your dream career and build up your work experience portfolio.
…or a new home
If you’re feeling unsettled at home, maybe home isn’t where you’re supposed to be right now. For some backpackers, the adventure never ends as they find a country where the lifestyle, climate or job opportunities suit them and choose to settle there instead of heading home. A move abroad never has to be a permanent change but if you find somewhere you love and feel at home there’s no need to rush back to where you started!
You need new experiences to shake up your routine
If you feel trapped in your daily routine or worry that life is passing you by a travel adventure might just be the fix you need. Whether you choose to spend a whole year working and travelling in Australia or backpacking around Asia for a month you’ll return home with new ideas on how to keep life exciting. You might bring home a new hobby or talent you’ve just discovered or simply decide you need to travel more often!
