Why we travel

Since the moment we could, humans have dedicated ourselves to the art of exploration. From landing on new islands to tasting new cuisines, the simple yet remarkable act of discovery is part of what makes life amazing. And travel plays an integral part in that. Which is why, when we cannot embark on new adventures, we begin to truly ponder and recognize everything we miss. There are endless reasons why people love to travel. These are five that top our list:


We Love to Learn


Travel and knowledge are effortlessly intertwined. And it’s a testament to the power of real-world experiences that we simply can’t find in a book. When people travel we crave…

  • Immersing ourselves in a new culture.
  • Trying tantalizing new foods not found at home.
  • Exploring ruins, castles, and more that make history come alive.
  • Socializing with the residents for a truly local perspective.
  • Expanding our mindset, attitude, and view of the world.


We Want to Connect

Meeting the locals isn’t the only way we make connections on vacation. When we put the people in our lives in a new place far from home, magic can happen. Away from everyday life we love…

  • Making cherished family memories with our kids.
  • Seeing our parents and other relatives in a whole new light.
  • Sparking some extra romance with our partners.
  • Whisking friends away to adventures unknown.
  • Finding connection with ourselves away from the daily grind.


We Cherish Celebrations

Commemorating occasions can be even more amazing when we’re destination bound. From magical weddings to smaller life events, we love feeling festive when we travel through...


We Wish for Renewal

Work, taxes, endless loads of laundry… adult responsibilities are enough to make us long to be kids again. This makes vacation time not a want, but a need. From spa trips to island retreats we love…

  • Taking time to let the mind wander.
  • Escaping from life’s daily stresses
  • Indulging in room service, massages, and other crave-worthy luxuries.
  • Finding gratitude in our own lives.
  • Feeling rejuvenated to tackle everything waiting back home.


We Experience New Things


Along with learning, travel brings the all important element of experiencing. The very notion of discovery is such a powerful force in our lives and changes us for the better. This includes…

  • Exploring the unknown (like some options below).
  • Setting forth on a far off exotic adventure.
  • Challenging ourselves in new and unusual ways.
  • Building confidence to take back to our regular lives.


Some ideas to try…

  • Snorkel in a coral reef.
  • Drive on the other side of the road.
  • Hike up a volcano.
  • Take an all-inclusive cruise.
  • Zip-line over the rainforest.
