There is no discounting that you learn some of the most important skills in the classroom but the lessons you learn about life when you leave your comfort zone and step into the unknown are incomparable. Here are some of the best lessons of life that travel teaches you.
TRUST YOUR INTUITION
If you travel on your own (by not opting for no-sweat group tours that have everything planned for you), you are likely to tackle situations where you have to make a choice or a decision immediately. No amount of research or preparedness can come to your rescue. But on the bright side, discovering things on your own, like what’s the cheapest and quickest way to get from point A to point B, how much should you trust your instinct when talking to a stranger, how much should you spend each day… etc. all go a long way to smarten you up. When you are in another country, you feel less judged and more courageous too.
