Sagetravels your NO 1 travel partner will be reviewing some of the reasons that will urge you to travel at least once to a foreign land before you die.
Repeating the same thing over and over could make you boring and dull. Imagine doing a particular job, staying in one particular house and doing the same daily routine could actually make you dull and monotonous. Taking a trip outside your usual environment is the best way to take a break. It will get you refreshed and ready for new challenge.
By the time you travel to a new place, where you will meet new people speaking a different language with different culture. You will be surrounded by new opportunity and challenges.

There is a big different between class work and field trip.

Have you tested Italian food from Italy?, Egusi soup from the Igbos in Nigeria, Chinese food. In fact, have you ever tested any food outside your comfort zone? C’mon you need to travel and test other people’s food and see how good they are. If you are a gastronomist, why not travel around and test good food.
You don’t need to break the bank before you can travel around the world. Staying in a luxury hotel or restaurant may not be necessary. But if you can afford it no problem but if you can’t cut your coat. Off-seasons are usually less expensive you can travel during those periods. Look for a discount in air fares, book early and get a cheaper rate. Instead of hiring a car, use public transport.
Especially if this is your first time of traveling abroad, you will never forget anything from purchasing your ticket to boarding a flight to departure to landing at new destination. All the adventures, the hotel, the food you tested and the places you visited would be well documented in your memory and you can share it with your family and friends, children and grandchildren. If you did not travel you will have nothing to share. Don’t forget to take pictures too.
Traveling abroad will not disconnect you from your loved ones at home. So there is nothing to worry about. Get an international sim card. Some travel agency is now giving international sim card that will enable you to stay connected. If the call rate is high, you can chat them on WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook or any other social network.
