What Inspired me to be a Travel Professional
My love for travel started in high school when I had the opportunity to participate in an exchange to Germany. I experienced the thrill of adventure and beauty of another country and culture.
This adventure opened my eyes to how different North American lifestyles were to European lifestyles.
Europeans seem to understand the concept of work to live rather than live to work far better than us. The majority of Europeans have a minimum of 6 weeks holidays and travel is high on the list of priority when it comes to this vacation time.
In North America we seem to be regressing rather than progressing in the means of connectivity as a family. We are more connected to our devices than we are with our families.
Ask yourself, when was the last day we disconnected from devices, work and other obligations and had a family day? How about a week?
My drive to increase family travel comes from my own childhood experiences of craving time with my own family and the memories that I have of taking family vacations. It also comes from losing family members as a young adult and learning quickly that we are not promised tomorrow.
The health benefits alone of what travel does for the human body should have no one doubting the importance of vacation time. I specifically want to speak to fellow entrepreneurs and professionals when I point out these benefits.
Studies have shown that travel lowers stress levels, increases happiness and decreases depression. It has been found that these improvements last for weeks after return from holidays.
Studies have also found that travel expands your mind and increases brain health. Travel makes us more globally and culturally aware, it increases creativity and allows for massive personal growth.
Something tells me there may be some increased productivity upon return as well.
There is no better time then now to get a vacation in the books, because nothing makes you richer than travel.
