Many people think that school is the best place to learn. However, it is not entirely true. Many amazing people didn’t get the opportunity to attend schools yet they grew amazingly. School is great place to expand your academic knowledge. You can learn about variety of subjects you find interesting such as biology, math, language skill, etc. However, academic knowledge is not the only important thing in life. Learning about life itself is just as important, if not more.
Travelling brings valuable life lessons
Many travelers gain knowledge about life from travelling not from schools. It doesn’t mean getting education from school is not useful. However, you can also gain various knowledge that can be useful for you to live your life. And travelling can bring valuable life lessons you may not find in schools.
School is considered a safe place because it is built with system and there are people running it such as teachers, staffs, etc. People who attend the same school usually share similar culture. Hence, everything seems safe. Meanwhile. Travelling makes you go to different places you may even have never know from the map you learn in school. Different places mean different culture, language, foods, and people. Hence, it brings you new knowledge to learn.
Travelling teaches you time management skills. In school, you also learn time management skill by submitting your assignment on time. If you are late, you can just visit the teacher and ask them for extension. However, time management skills you learn from travelling have higher consequences. If you are late, it can cost you lots of money because you have to buy new tickets, reschedule your booking, etc.
Travelling allows you to not only learn by theory but in real situation. You may spend some times to read about your travel destination prior your trip so you know about their culture ahead of time. However, you will also see and experience everything you learn yourself in real life. Surrounding yourself with different culture will be such an eye-opening for you.
Travelling can help you understand yourself better. At schools, you are always surrounded with people you know. You also experience having problems but there will always people ready to help. Meanwhile, travelling makes you face the world. You may encounter problems you may have never experienced before and no one knows you. It sparks your creativity to solve problems and find the real potential of yourself.
Travelling also allows you learn variety of skills you may not find interesting at schools such as language skills. During travel, you are eager to learn new language of the locals because you want to understand them and be able to interact with them. Hence, you learn more about the culture. You also learn your organizing skills better from travelling because you organize the itinerary yourself.
By travelling, you also have many stories to share and tell. It can be fun to do for you but for others, it can be valuable information as well.
