Travelling with purpose can mean many different things to different people.
For some, it may mean traveling to different countries to volunteer or do humanitarian work. For you it may mean travelling to learn more about other cultures and immerse yourselves into other ways of life. For me, it’s challenging myself and learning new skills.
Regardless of what your personal purpose for travelling may be, there are a few things to keep in mind in order to make the most of your journey.
Firstly, it’s important to do your research before you go. This means learning about the destination you’re planning to visit, as well as any potential risks or challenges you may face. This will help you to be prepared for what to expect and how to handle any unexpected situations that may arise.
Once you’re on your way, it’s important to stay open-minded and flexible. Things may not always go according to plan, or how you expected them. Embrace the unexpected and be willing to go with the flow. This will help you to make the most of your travels and have a more enjoyable experience overall. Remember, every country/ culture/ person does things slightly different. Travelling is a great way to embrace the differences between us all.
When travelling with purpose it is important to be respectful of the local culture and customs. This means being mindful of your actions and words, and being willing to adapt to the local way of life. This will not only help you to better understand and appreciate the culture you’re visiting, but it will also help to build positive relationships and interactions with the people you meet along the way.
A great way to really travel with purpose is to get involved with a local not for profit or community group that is trying to better the location and it’s earth community. You can find these organisations by reaching out to Chasin Clean Coasts or asking around while in the country or on social media before you visit the country.
Finally, it’s important to remember that travel is a journey, not just a destination. Take the time to slow down, soak it all up and really immerse yourself in the place that you are visiting. A way you can do this is to try new things, engage with the local community, and take the time to truly appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of the places you’re visiting.
In conclusion, travelling with purpose can be a rewarding and fulfilling experience. By doing your research, staying open-minded, being respectful, and taking the time to truly experience the places you visit, you can make the most of your travels and come away with a greater understanding of the world and yourself.
