Why should you travel? Good question ask yourself this. What do you want out of your life?
Is there something missing, is there a thought that comes every so often? Yelling “The world is so big I haven't seen 1% of it yet.”.
Think about it do you want to die. Without seeing and learning what's out there. This is where I need to step in to help you on your journey and help you figure it out.

I know this is mostly likely the first thing that pops in your head (me To). I don't blame you, but that doesn't have to stop you.
There are so many travel companies out there. Fighting for your loyalty and money use that to your advantage.
Here's an example before it was American Airlines for flying, taxis for transport, the Hilton Hotel for lodging.
At least those were the main ones and there were expensive.
Now you have Airbnb for lodging. which is one of my personal favorites.
Uber for transport, Expedia for flying.
Plus every year there's new start-ups increasing competition and making prices more competitive.
Which, in turn, lowers cost to you, because companies want to keep you from going to the other guy.
Hint look at Tripadvisor
It has more honest reviews. Than most forums on the internet when it comes to Travel. You can easily get insights into almost any Travel business your on the fence about.
You should look at reviews with pictures and in-depth details there usually the most trustworthy.
This was something we see in movies or history books. Let me tell you from personnel experience.
Interacting with a new culture physically it's a new ball game. Just look at the picture below when I traveled to Cuzco, Peru.
I just had to hug them, and they were so friendly they even posed for a picture.
This is one of the many things you encounter during your travels that you would never imagine.
Don't get intimidated by the looks of something (I thought they would bite me if I got close.)
Nope fat chance these two Alpacas are the true definition of cute and friendly.
The more you travel the more you will learn of the language, food, history, the people.
Believe me its way better than just staying at some fancy Resort your entire trip sun bathing.
Remember when your parents would say “Go out there and make friends” when you were in pre school.
Yeah! Me to yet as we get older we build a circle, and we stick to that circle of friends.
Why? It's your comfort zone its easier to talk with someone you know for 10 years than someone you just met.
Yet let me tell you when you're Adventuring around the world that's what happens. You met people left and right.
So this is your opportunity to learn from those friends about new places. Recommendations on where to stay, heck they might even invite you to their country.
BAM worldwide networking begins. Look at a few friends I made below.
I know we were being silly. Had a good laugh, long conversations. Now I can say I have friends in Peru.
Don't be afraid to befriend people it can help you done the line plus.
It's a good way to pass the time, when you are sitting for hours to get to your destination.
You thought I was going to skip the best part of Travel. Well let me tell you Travel is not complete without adventure.
If you're like me adventure is 50% of the reason why you should Travel.
Imagine the hikes, scenic views, as you can see that can only be done when traveling.
You can do this to. All it takes is a leap of faith into the world of travel.
This video was taken back when I was in the State of Nevada. On my way to the Grand Canyon.
I spent at that time $92 for a 15-hour tour with everything included bus, food, Grand canyon. Now ask yourself, is this a bad deal.
You mostly likely spend more going to a mid-tier restaurant with friends or family for a night.
If you want to understand more and see what is possible with travel. Look at my channel.
dailymotion.com/Edwinreyes the videos will give you an idea how beautiful the world is, and why you should run to your nearest airport.
This might seem unimportant but it is. For those of you who are the nervous type (I usto be).
This is important because this is free therapy on top of your travel fun as a bonus.
Think about it if you're exposing yourself to new places, faces, cultures repeatedly. Going through rough airports.
Putting yourself out of your comfort zone constantly, you adapt to it.
This will help you be a stronger person not just when you travel but when you're back home.
For example that new job you're waiting for why get nervous when you zip lined through the Costa Rica, Rainforest.
That mentality will come up you will think “I have gone through worse than this.”. I personally have benefited from this because of the confidence.
I have gained through my travels around the world you can to.
The chances are rare you think it never happens. Yet it does, in my case I made friends with people in other countries.
Meaning if I ever want to leave the U.S. and become an Expat. I would get a job easily I speak two languages (almost three).
Plus an Associates degree I can become a tour guide, teach classes at certain schools.
The opportunities are endless, so always be on the look out for chances like this when you travel.
Also ask yourself why should you limit your success in your home country. I had a friend who had no prospects in Peru but got a high paying job in Ecuador.
He told me he didn't regret it the best time of his life. Should the chance present its self don't waste it?
You're asking yourself Why should I care about this? Technically speaking there is some weight to this.
Yet ask yourself, when is knowledge ever a bad thing.
I'm use myself again for reference I started Crazymyworld, blogging about travel that was through years of knowledge.
Plus the more you know the better you can protect yourself. From scammers or expensive trips through overpriced companies.
Its common knowledge that tourists in any country are the most targeted.
So by being savvy you can be aware of the tricks used to get you.
You can even use this in your home country there will be slight differences but it's useful.
When you take those scam sensing skill with you every time you travel or you're at home. You can save a lot of money by not dealing with it.
I will tell you what I mean.
Every country I go to including different states I travel to. I always go to local restaurants and not the name brands.
Why? Simple they over charge for food you can get at a mom-and-pop shop for half the price plus its not as good.
This strategy works in every country. Just doing this alone can save you hundreds per trip. Remember the old adage knowledge is power.
Be smart I want you as fellow human beings. To enjoy life as much as possible. I like to think I'm contributing to humanity in some way.
Just using one of these technique's can be a game changer.
Try to test each of these technique's one by one. When you see results, you will do it more after a while you will become a pro.
