Today I’m talking all about 5 things I love about travelling. This is because I’m happy to announce that I’m launching a travel section on this blog. I’m hoping to combine the places I’ve travelled to, with some guest posts from other bloggers. If you would like to guest post for either my travel section or any other section of my blog, please check out my requirements and get in touch.
Here is 5 things I love about travelling:
Exploring somewhere new
There is something so exciting about exploring new places. I love stepping outside the hotel for the first time and just going for a wonder to see what is about. I always ask for recommendations online but sometimes you discover those little hidden gems just by exploring.
Meeting new people
I have met some lovely people over the years through travelling. When people are on holiday, they are so much more relaxed and friendly. You can really get to know them. I’ve made several friends this way and have made good memories in the process.
Learning about new cultures
I have never been someone that can learn from a book. I struggled at school for this very reason. However, travelling has opened my eyes to so many new cultures. I’m fascinated by how others live their lives, their customs and traditions especially.
I have always loved history. Whenever I’m travelling to a new destination, I do a search to find out the history of the place. There are some real historic hidden gems to discover all over the world, some of which are on our own doorsteps.
Learning a new language
I have never been any good at learning languages. I took French at school but I can barely string a sentence together. However, travelling has meant that I’ve been able to learn certain words and phrases to get by. Locals are always happy to teach you common phrases as a way of connecting with you and making your stay special.
That brings me to the end of this list. There is loads more I could have added but I’d love to know what your favourite thing about travelling is in the comments.
