Living out of a suitcase

Why we should travel the world

Taking a break from normal day life

Imagine leaving everything that you ever knew behind with just a suitcase. Scary I know, but imagine stepping out into a world you never knew, learning about new cultures and seeing new places.


Everyone should at least once in their life time experience something new. Every single day we wake up and not much changes we go to school, work, do homework, run errands and do the same thing the next day. Pretty boring right? We should all try to disconnect from our regular day lives. It may not only make you feel more alive but may make you see life in a different way.

Why should we pack up and leave?

  • Traveling would help you focus on the more important things in life. In your comfort zone you are more likely to be very materalistic. You may feel like you need the newest things, But do you really ? Traveling for a few months with just one luggage may make you more minimalistic and make you realize that you don't always need everything.
  • Traveling also removes you from your everyday surroundings. removing yourself pushes you to experience things you never have and you may see a more adventurous side of you come out.
  • Traveling can also make you see different things going on around the world that you had no idea about. In our comfort zone we tend to stay in a bubble. Most of us don't read/watch the news. So traveling the world would help you learn more about was is going on around the world.
  • Aside from all the reasons we should travel the most important is that sometimes we need to removes our selfs from a situation to realize how much our family and friends mean to us. We tend to get stressed out with life and lash out at people we don't want to get mad at. So leaving for a few months would make you realize how much you really do love certain people in your life.

My own experience

From my own experience with traveling I did become more adventurous. I went jetsking, ziplining, swimming with dolphins. I did things I never thought I would. I also loved seeing new places and learning about new cultures. Traveling also made me feel closer to my family. Going away for a few weeks together brought us closer together and created an even stronger bond and great memories. In the future I do plan on living out of a suitcase myself for at least a month and traveling around Europe . So what's stopping you?
