1. You’ll find yourself and your purpose
College life is entertaining because of the people you meet. As you travel, you do not have to wake up for college everyday or turn in an assignment within a deadline. By voyaging around the globe, you’re greeted by surprise at every turn. When you look at your reflection in a lake secluded in the nature, that’s when find your true self.
2. The present is all that matters
As a Skylark graduate, I got an opportunity to visit some of the beautiful places that I never knew existed. Every place made me realize that life is fleeting and time continues to lapse every day. Every second that you don’t enjoy is time wasted.You don’t have to wait for tomorrow to relish the joy in life. You’ll gradually realize that you don’t have to wait for Mother’s Day to appreciate your mom or wait for your birthday to celebrate. You’ll learn to stop tirelessly working daily, only to enjoy after a decade.
3. We are one irrespective of our nationality
When you fly around the world, you step out of your usual routine, and also feel strange to unfamiliarity. With time and frequency of your visit, this weirdness becomes a tempting obsession. When you pick a book instead of your phone, you’ll have a fellow traveler striking a friendly conversation. Many wayfarers find life-long friends, or love partner on their journey. Although we’re often told‘Not to talk to strangers’ but then, most of our best friends are strangers.
4. Home is the sweetest place to be
After visiting more than a dozen countries in the past year, I’ve realized that every destination is a highly rewarding experience. From sight-seeing the Eiffel tower in Paris or taking a stroll around Taj Mahal in Agra, the comforting-warmth of a home is unmatched. Also, the fact that you’ve access to amenities like Refrigerator, TV and Car at home makes you appreciative. Many of the third-world country inhabitants don’t have the necessities like we’re blessed with in our homes.
