20 Reasons to Travel Full Time

If you crave waking up to a new adventure daily, full time travel could be the life for you. Here is a list of 20 inspiring reasons to start traveling and living the life you deserve.

1. Become comfortable with yourself

Traveling opens you up to understanding your true personality, how you deal with situations, and ultimately allows you to become comfortable with who you really are. For those who feel comfortable traveling alone, you know it’s a time for some self-reflection and soul-searching.

2. Chase your dreams

When you were young you would say, “I’ll go to Canada to see the Northern Lights one day”. Well now is the opportunity to follow your dreams and travel anywhere you wish.

3. Learn the History

Textbooks can only teach you so much, the best education is to experience iconic locations for yourself. Every country is rich in culture and tradition, you will learn fun facts along the way, share tips with other travelers, and will ultimately gain new ideas and experiences.

4. Explore different cultures

The world is full of various cultures that most people do not get to experience, but full time travelers are blessed with the privilege to gain knowledge and explore the traditions of the world. There is no one right way to think, and being open to diverse cultures allows you to explore more about your capacity for acceptance.

5. Learn about wildlife

Regardless if you are hiking the Appalachian Trail or deep-sea diving in Australia, traveling will open you up to how enchanting the natural world truly is.

6. Live like a local

When traveling, it’s normal to feel the need to immerse yourself in a place for a while. If you want to stay somewhere longer, trust your instincts and you will learn how to blend in so you don’t feel or look like a tourist at all.

7. Enjoy the local food

If you’re a traveler, one of the most fulfilling things is enjoying local cuisines that expand your palate. With the diverse cuisines the world has to offer, food lovers have a definite reason to travel full time.

8. Be out of the ordinary

Living in a city and working a 9-5 job could have its exciting points, but ultimately it can be repetitive and draining. Being a full time traveler means you’re constantly on the move, learning new things, and challenging yourself.

9. Overcome your fears

The best way to overcome any fear is to persevere and challenge yourself to conquer your phobias. Full time travelers rarely tense up at a cliff’s edge or hesitate at the opportunity for a deep-sea dive since they’ve pushed themselves to overcome their fears.

10. Meet new people

Full time travel allows for opportunity to meet some inspiring people who belong to different cultures with diverse backgrounds. It helps to create an international community of people from all around the world.

11. Experience new artforms

Art is everywhere when you’re traveling. From weavers to jewelry makers, there is bound to be something you find fascinating – maybe even enough to try yourself!

12. Learn a new language

Some people enjoy learning new languages because of the beauty of the sound, full time travelers don’t only learn new languages but become fluent due to frequent use. It can even be the difference between paying the tourist price and paying the local price.

13. Explore your photography skills

Everyone has some creativity in them, traveling can help you tap into those creative abilities and capture beautiful images for you to look back on and share with your friends and family back home.

14. Inspire others

Not everyone enjoys the opportunities to travel the world, so show them it’s possible to be happy doing something you love.

15. Learn to be alone

You have the ability to travel whenever and wherever you want without anyone holding you back.

16. Visit iconic locations

One of the benefits of traveling is visiting iconic locations like the Eiffel Tower, Sydney Opera House, or the Great Wall of China.

17. Make money while traveling

Maintaining an income while traveling can be quite beneficial since you will likely be utilizing creative skills such as photography, writing travel articles, and design. Keep your eye out for job opportunities while traveling that are close to your heart.

18. Become good at budgeting

Since your resources are limited, you’ll become accustomed to saving every penny. Careful planning, knowing when to travel, when to book tickets, and how much to spend will help you manage your money significantly.

19. No regrets

Travelers do not regret anything, they are too busy living their best life and following where their instinct leads them.

20. Be comfortable anywhere

Traveling forces you to go with the flow, and reminds you that you have to wait on the world, not the other way around.

Traveling will help you test your limits and challenge you to become the best version of yourself. Remind yourself that you only have one life to live and you have to make the best of it while you can. Go to all the places on your bucket list and more, and live freely without any restrictions.
