It Turns Out That Travelling Makes You Wealthier Than Having A Bank Account Full Of Zeroes

We all love a nice vacation at a fancy resort but the truth is, even the fanciest of resorts can’t make us truly happy. So instead of spending your money on sheer luxury, spend it on a experience! Both travel experiences and small ones like concerts and local trips will improve your happiness. Here’s why:

YOU OUTGROW MATERIAL ITEMS BUT YOU NEVER FORGET AN ADVENTURE

It’s true. While you may love your new jacket, it will be out of season, ripped or forgotten about in a few years. After all, that Prada bag is just a Prada bag, and it can get torn off eventually. But the adventures you’ve had will stay with you a lifetime.

EXPERIENCES MAKE YOU A MORE ROUNDED PERSON

Having different types of experiences with different people makes you more comfortable with life “outside the norm”- and definitely less boring!

YOU WILL BE MORE CONFIDENT

Your experiences stay with you and that means that with each new one you’ll be more and more confident in elated scenarios. Getting validation through other people’s friendship will definitely give you a self-esteem boost as well.

YOU’LL BE MORE POSITIVE

Many people compare and judge based on superficial things like the type of job you have, who you hang out with, and how pretty you may look. But if those aren’t your priority, then don’t become one of them, or force yourself to interact in that manner. Travel the world and discover other cultures, other friends. You don’t need to get rid of past friendships, but merely add more people to the equation that will always result in you being happier and richer.

YOU’LL DEVELOP TRUE FRIENDSHIPS

No one really bonds over the same pair of pants. But you do make a connection with others who have been in the same situation. Getting locked outside of a hostel, trapped under a tree for hours because it suddenly started raining in Cambodia, or sharing your itinerary with another couple of travelers surely bonds you for life. 

YOU’LL HAVE BETTER CONVERSATION STARTERS

Hiking the grand canyon or surfing in Costa Rica are much better conversations points than “hey look at my new shoes” or “here’s what I had for dinner last night.” You can also explore your hometown and find different events and things to do that will make your life as interesting as if you were traveling to Indonesia. 

YOU’LL COMPARE LESS

You don’t really care if your sneakers are last season if you’ve just got back from India. It’s easy to compare whose shoes are better but less practical to compare who had more fun at a concert.

YOU’LL APPRECIATE YOUR NEXT EXPERIENCE MORE

While you may become accustomed to the new (amazing) pants you bought, experiences only last so long and thus they’re much more valuable. When you’re in your deathbed, you won’t be thinking of the beautiful furniture you bought for your house, but all the amazing things you saw when you booked that first flight.  

EXPERIENCES BUILD YOUR CHARACTER

Even bad experiences help define who you become as a person thus you can learn from them all.

YOU’LL BE A MUCH BETTER STORY TELLER

The more experiences you rack up the more stories you’ll have to tell. Many of which will be completely random or downright laughable! The more excited you are about remembering them the better the story becomes.

YOU WILL DEVELOP A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE
