Having the ability to travel and explore other parts of the world has to be one of the greatest privileges there is. Unlike many people who have chained themselves to a desk or have bought into the idea that traveling is only something you do for two weeks out of the year, now more than ever people are becoming more flexible with how they live and, therefore, have the ability to travel.
With more and more people turning to their laptop for work and letting go of the American Dream (big house, kids, debt, etc.), many individuals are now opening themselves up to new cultures and new ideas. This plays such a critical role in how our society develops as we are no longer confined to just what we see around us.
Sure, the Internet has brought us closer digitally, but physically traveling somewhere and immersing yourself in a culture takes on a whole other meaning. Here are some inspirational quotes that reflect how important it is to go out and see the world:
This quote is so important because it highlights how small our world view can become if we don’t get outside of our little comfort zone. This is why so many people (especially in America) have a hard time relating with each other.
If you are sitting at a desk in front of computer and have not gone further than 30 miles from your home in the last year or two (or ten?), then this quote is for you. Stop playing it safe and get out of your comfort zone.
With this quote, I think it does a great job of highlighting how travel brings you into the moment and allows you to have a fresh start on life. Not only does it give you the opportunity to hit the restart button and cleanse your past, but it also give you the opportunity to look at the world through new eyes.
Here is another great quote that points out the importance of seeing the world to broaden your horizon. So many of us become creatures of habit and fear breaking through our comfort zone.
Unless you have been living under a rock, then you know that Mr. Bourdain has been all around the world tasting foods from every culture. But more importantly, he immerses himself in the local culture. In this quote, I think he also does a good job of saying how it is also important to leave something of yourself behind and not just take.
