More and more people seem to be getting bitten by the travel bug and as owners of stunning holiday villas in Crete, we can’t say we blame them. Never has there been as much demand for holidays around the world, but why is it that we love to travel?

Different people have different reasons for wanting to get away from their lives for a short while- or even a long one! Whether it be to seek new adventures of simply have a relaxing time by the pool in a warmer climate, there is no right or wrong answer as to why someone would want to travel the world.

Below, we’ve listed just some of the reasons that may encourage or inspire you to take off on a new adventure somewhere else in the world.

To Challenge Themselves

Many people feel as though travelling is something that they could never do. Maybe it’s because they will be living in a different environment than they are used to or simply don’t like being away from the safety and security of their own home.

However, this uncertainty and newness is what drives others to jump on a plane and jet off to a new destination. It makes them feel like they are challenging themselves to live in a different country and culture to what they are used to… and this excites them!

To Enjoy New Experiences

Different countries and cultures present brand new experiences for you to enjoy that you probably wouldn’t be able to take part in if you were stuck at home.

From local activities that aren’t found anywhere in the world but your destination to meeting new people and learning about their way of life, experiencing something new is one of the greatest rewards that you can take away from travelling around the globe.

To Experience New Cultures

Although there may be elements of different cultures in the country that you live in, there’s no better way to find out how other people live than visiting the culture itself.

Indulging in the fantastic aromas of delicious cultural dishes and marvelling at the way of life of how another culture live is a great way to learn about the world in which we live, as well as appreciate the culture that we have grown up living in too.

To Have Fun and Relax

Getting away from the stresses and strains of your life for even a couple of days is a great way to reset your mindset and return refreshed and feeling ready to take anything on.

The great thing about travelling is that you don’t have time to sit down and worry about your life back home, making it easy to switch off and enjoy yourself. You will concentrating on getting the most out of your holiday before your inevitable return so you will be less likely to be worrying about that mountain of paperwork that you left on your desk before jetting off.

Whatever your reason is for travelling the world, we hope that you enjoy every single moment of your trip. Travelling is an incredible feeling and we hope that we’ve inspired you to get planning your next trip away!
