Caz Makepeace’s Top 10 Reasons To Travel
“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.” – Jennifer Lee
Travel can truly teach you so much – but most of all it can help you to truly discover the real you! Caz Makepeace, of YTravelBlog, couldn’t agree with this statement more. Caz and Craig Makepeace are a married couple from Australia who caught the travel bug over 16 years ago and have been traveling ever since. Now they call the world their home. It’s their absolute passion to help others travel as well. And they’ve been changing lives through their travel blog since 2010. Here are Caz’s top 10 ways that travel helps you to discover yourself.
1. Cultural Reconstruction
Disconnect from cultural upbringing; although it shapes who we are, it can also limit us.
Remove yourself from family and friends because when people expect you to be who you always were, there’s little room to grow and change.
Strip free of belongings; you don’t realize how much belongings weigh you down until you free yourself of them.
Force yourself to deal with change and uncertainties – the best way to adapt to change is travel.
Learn what you like and don’t like.
Understand your strengths and weaknesses.
In leaving what you know, there’s the chance to live free from judgment.
Present your best self. When people don’t know you, you can always be who you want to be.
Pursue passions with reckless abandonment.
You can be selfish – do what you want.
