Why Traveling?

Traveling is undeniably, a great thing to do, especially now. Summer is a good time of the year to start a new adventure or to see new parts of the world.

Most people travel as part of their daily routine, not only because it is enjoyable but also because it has a lot to offer.

There are lots of places to explore in the world. Your travel doesnt have to be limited to where you live or what you read in a book, there are lots of exciting places to experience in the world. Traveling is worth every penny you will spend because memories last forever.

There are many advantages to traveling around the world. Here are a few to think about:
Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few days or weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without a distant travel. We all have busy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone, with family or with some friends can give you some space to clear your head and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are to you. Sometimes, we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to accomplish. Its nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our brains" by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. Its a very good stress buster.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs and different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. You learn to understand and appreciate other cultures. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. Visit new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.

New experiences increase our resourcefulness by living situations you would never encounter at home, this is great experience for you when you come back to your routine.          I have noticed that people who traveled a lot in life were ready to embrace change and have a natural ability of overcoming problems that others would frown upon.
Traveling with friends or family creates memories for a lifetime. These memories will create a bond in the relationship and cement it forever. It also gives nice stories to tell people afterwards, you can create photo albums about your trips.

The internet and all the new technology can assist you in planning your trip exactly the way you want it. Make your budget, the duration of the trip and what you want to do.

If you have some time off I suggest you take that trip youve always wanted (I assure you it wont kill you and the world wont stop!). Just do it now and experience what more life has to offer. Dont wait or tell yourself there will be a better time to go. Take the risk, the opportunity and buy your flight ticket (or bus ticket) right now and leave.
Meanwhile, it is interesting to know that, as Nigerians there are a few places you can go without obtaining a VISA. These are some of the visa-free countries for Nigerian passport holders:

Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape-Verde, Cameroon, Chad, Cรดted'Ivoire, Ghana, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Liberia, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Togo, Grenada, Haiti, Montserrat, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Turks and Caicos Islands, Maldives, Cook Islands, Fiji, Micronesia, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Samoa, Tuvalu and Vanuatu.

The period you stay varies from country to country and then you would have to obtain a visa for staying longer than the stipulated period while other countries issues visas on arrival.  Get more facts from their websites or the embassies.
