You get to gain new perspective in life, you find new inspirations, you meet new people, make new friends, and learn to adapt to different people and the culture of wherever place you want to go. Remember that. Travelling can be also a form of self-rewarding. When you feel like you have worked so hard, it is nice to reward yourself with such a special treat. It is also a form of relaxation, having nothing to worry about anything else apart the majestic and beautiful surroundings of the country you are visiting.
