[Why You Should Go Traveling]

People always say, “Either your body, or your soul should always be on the road.” For your soul to be on the road, it means reading. For your body to be on the road, it means traveling. If you want to ask: why should I spend a lot of money just for going to another city/country for a few days, this article will give you three reasons on why you should have a trip:

First, leave your comfort zone. This is probably the most important reason. When traveling to another place, where people have different language, culture, you may feel a little bit “uncomfortable”—and congratulates, that is the first step for you to be afresh. I go traveling around, primarily because I want to challenge myself by meeting new people, speaking another language, and experiencing a brand-new culture. That is also the chance for you to be independent, open-minded and gain a global eyesight.

Second, build up your life story. You will be surprised to know how many people love traveling. I had a friend who went to Lebanon this summer (and she also experienced a local parade lasting for more than four hours). We can just chat about what happened during the journey for hours—and guess what, that is also something you can talk about in your interview!

Third, traveling is fun. Yeah, you don’t really need a reason. We travel just because it is cool. It is so enjoyable when visiting a historic site you read about in a book before. Of course, you should also try to enjoy all those “unpleasant things” that may happen accidentally in your trip — such as a flight delay or a night of awful accommodation. But that is what makes traveling so charming right? Face those unexpected things, and smile.

人們常說:「身體和靈魂,總有一個要在路上。」所謂靈魂在路上,就是讀書;而身體在路上,指的就是旅行。或許你會問,為什麼我要花那麼多錢只為了在另一個城市或國家呆上幾天?這篇文章就來給你去旅行的三大理由:

一,離開你的舒適圈。這可能是最重要的原因——當你旅行的時候,你遇到的人會說不一樣的語言,經歷不一樣的文化,你甚至會因此感到一點點的不舒服——恭喜你,你正在享受你的“涅槃重生”。於我,我之所以喜歡旅行,就是想通過陌生的人、語言、文化來挑戰我自己。這也是一個讓你可以學習獨立,變得開放、並擁有全球化視野的機會。

二,建立起你的人生經歷。你可能會因世界上喜愛旅行的人數之多而感到驚訝。我有一個剛剛從黎巴嫩回來的朋友(她還在那裏經歷了一場長達四個小時的遊行)。我們聊她的見聞就可以聊好幾個小時。另外,你的旅行經歷也是在面試中的絕佳話題!

三,只因為旅行有趣——是的,你不需要什麼「原因」。當你只在書上見過的地方出現在你的眼前,你就會感受到——旅行真的很酷!你也會逐漸學會享受那些旅行中不那麼酷的事情——比如飛機晚點、糟糕的住宿。但是正是這些小意外讓旅行變得更有魅力對麼?勇敢面對這些沒有預見到的事情,然後笑對他們吧!
