Where will you leave your hat? That’s a difficult question for someone in their 20s. There’s a whole world out there to explore, and it can take years to figure out where you’d like to settle down. That’s where travel can help. Travelling gives you the opportunity to explore different places, different cultures and can help you figure out what you want from life, including where to live.
It takes you away from what you know
Home is familiar, home is comforting and it’s normal to want to hold onto that. While many people will settle down in the place where they grew up, it doesn’t hurt to see what else is out there. If you’ve got itchy feet, travelling can help to scratch it and help you determine if home is where you want to settle after all. From experiencing new towns to travelling to different countries, you’ll learn a lot about what the world has to offer, which can affect where you want to be in 5, 10 or 20 years’ time.
It can introduce you to new job opportunities
There are many ways that travel can help boost your career, and one of them is through introducing you to new opportunities you might not get at home. Job markets vary in different countries, and while one job might be competitive in the UK, it could be a different story in Australia. You could even be introduced to industries and job types that you didn’t even know existed! Getting away from it all and working abroad can be a fantastic way to broaden your horizons, and could help you find your passion that will shape your future career.
It can help you get what you want out of life
When you travel, you get the pleasure of exploring different countries, climates, and ways of living. This can contribute to helping you figure out what you want out of life. Want a big house in the country or a warmer climate? You might not be able to get that in the UK, but things can be very different in another country. Investing in land or property in Wyndham Ridge, Australia could be much more affordable than here in the UK, allowing you to build your dream home and live in a much warmer climate! Travel can also help you to figure out what you don’t want, which could lead home to be the right decision for you after all.
Travel offers many exciting opportunities and can help you make a lot of decisions about your future. While you might not know where you’re going right now, some time away could help you figure out what it is you really want, and help you decide where you’d like to settle. Get some travel inspiration to help you plan your next adventure and who knows, it could just lead you to your future home!
