You can do more
Let’s face it, right now you are younger then you’re ever going to be. Now is the time to walk miles on cobblestone streets, to stay up late and get up early, to drive 10 hours straight, to sleep under the stars, to climb mountains in the wrong shoes, to take ancient stairs two at a time. Do it while you can! Before your back starts to hurt and your heart beat strains and you need an afternoon nap or two.
You have less responsibilities
The older you get, the more things you have tying you down. Go now, before you own a house, before you have a dog, before you have work meetings you can’t miss, before your spouse gets first dibs on your days off, before you need to find someone to watch the kids, before the money you saved is designated to remolding your kitchen.
Lifelong lessons will really be lifelong
Travel teaches you so much. About the world, about yourself, about the things you want, about what is most important. It teaches you to be independent, open-minded, grateful, proactive, and so many other things. The sooner you learn those things, the more they will be able to serve you in your life.
You catch the bug early
Travel breeds more travel. There is no way around it. Once you cross one place off the list, five more pop up. The sooner you start, the more time you will have, the more you will get to see
You never know what tomorrow brings
This may seem a little morbid, but it is so incredibly true. You never can know how much time you have, or how much time the people around you have. You never know how the world will change and how the opportunity to see certain places may disappear. Don’t wait to do the things you want to do, to live the life want to live.
