No wonder, millennials are the people who are most likely to have wanderlusts, craving for adventures and new experiences. And somehow, these experience affects their perspectives and plans for the future.
According to studies, traveling shows a person the new sides of life! Let’s put it this way, when you travel to other countries, for example, the Philippines, you’ll see how hospitable the people are, and how they are living their lives within an average social status. You’ll realize that money can’t make all of the people happy, of course, you’ll need money for your basic needs, but it all ends on that. You will not have to need more money to just watch them pile up inside your vault or just burn them by buying the things you want, and the other sides of life go on.

How Traveling Affects Millennials’ Mind
Before traveling, you might think of exciting souvenirs, delicacies, and the tourist attraction you are heading to, (and take pictures to post it on social media), but have millennials thought of the excitement to learn new things and meet new people?
Millennials tend to visit places to meet people and make friends with other tourists, and just get along with them. They often talk about how their experiences of the place and tackle about plans of returning to the place in the near future and meet again. As they part ways, they realize how friendships develop in just a short while.
[hoops name=”InArticle”]During their travels, whether they are alone or with their classmates, friends, and relatives, they find other places pleasant and thinking of settling down there in the future. It’s either they observed that the place was relevant to the type of the living or the plan to have a job because of the salary, or they just see their future staying in there.
Traveling also gives millennials the time to reflect themselves, “I’m graduating this year, what will I do after that?” “What am I doing with my life?” The thoughts will just flood your mind when the silence of nature starts to cover your ears. Take this opportunity to think, when your mind is far from the chaotic civilization. All of us tend to make decisions wrong when we are confused and bad decisions really make big domino effects.

So, the travel was about to end, and a common millennial will surely feel devastated leaving the arms of nature or the peace he really loved because he has obligations and returns to reality. Well at least, he learned so many things, being thrifty and save money because you only had a certain amount, of how employees work hard for the tourists and give them the best services, of how people on the other places live… How they face life, a bit far from yours. You witnessed the bad reality of poverty and realized you are lucky enough to even have a dollar.
In that, a millennial tends to keep in mind that they have to take really good care for the future, study hard, work really hard, not just for the money, but for your passion and love of work. Or maybe you are planning to live in Amsterdam because you fell in love with the canals at night and you’d love to build a family there? Whatever that was, that a common millennial thought of, I am sure that one of your travels helped you to maintain optimism for your future. Keep exploring and learn! Traveling Affects Millennial Minds
