    I loved reading through your thought, and I completely agree with everything you wrote down. One, that traveling made me more understanding, caring, and open for other cultures, and people, in usual. The other is that nothing is recharging me better than traveling. I found this out when I was 12 years old, running away every month 2 times to my grandfather – who was always busy and I didn’t know anyone in the town – where I met so many new people, by myself, and this started to expand as I was growing to cities, nearby countries, and in the end to the world. I already know that my “need a trip” button when it is turning on in my head, and I’m always prepared in advance with a trip booked for that period. There’s literally nothing better than solo traveling for self-care. I loved this post! xx

      Hey Helga! Thank you for sharing your thoughts. And I completely agree—in my opinion, traveling is one of the best ways to see the world and become more empathetic to other walks of life. I think it also shows us that while cultures may differ, there are so many similarities, too.

    I love this post! I love traveling because I feel so revived after going on a trip. Specially when I travel somewhere new. It’s like a reset button, it gets my out of my head and my usual patterns. I believe it’s great for mental health too. It truly is one of the best form of self care out there.

      Hey Rica! I completely agree — it’s a great way to see what you’re capable of and also step out of your normal bubble and routine. 🙂
