Granted, there are many reasons to put off that dream trip because it’s expensive, or scary, or you have a miserable sense of direction!

But then, there are so many reasons why you shouldn’t put it off, especially if you’re younger and it’s not like you’ve got a chance in hell of getting a house and other worthwhile things to spend your money on.

Here is 10 reasons why you should just go:

  1.  You get to experience things you never could have dreamed of doing.20258345_10156457122784937_8521961160167259512_n
  2. You get to see other cultures and learn about them from people who actually live there.

  3. You get to see history, not just read about it.21689390_132870610677613_3479877181478273024_n(1)
  4. You will learn more about yourself than you would think (it’s an obvious one, I know, but very true)

9. You’ll learn how to pack light, learning in the process the material shit you can do without.
