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.   Here are her 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.

2. Solitude

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.

3. Minimalism

Strip free of belongings; you don’t realize how much belongings weigh you down until you free yourself of them.

4. Aptitude

Force yourself to deal with change and uncertainties – the best way to adapt to change is travel.

5. Taste

Learn what you like and don’t like.

6. Self-Reflection

Understand your strengths and weaknesses.

7. Freedom

In leaving what you know, there’s the chance to live free from judgment.

8. Reinvention

Present your best self. When people don’t know you, you can always be who you want to be.

9. Drive

Pursue passions with reckless abandonment.

10. Desire

You can be selfish – do what you want.


Caz and Craig Makepeace are a married couple from Australia who caught the travel bug 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. Over the next 3 years, they will embark on an American road trip across all 50 states, with their two children. They plan to accumulate memories, not just possessions, and live as Americans-not tourists-throughout The United States.
