What can beat a round the world trip? If given even the slightest opportunity, I’m definitely sure that almost anybody would take the chance without a second thought.

Though there are some others who might think that a round-the-world trip is just a waste of good money and time. But despite the negative reasoning, there are still hundreds more reasons why you should tour around the world. Here’s some:

1. You are in a gap year.

You may be in a year where you just forget about everything or learn more stuff by experience and not just studying books. Gap years are the best year to just go travelling, not just on weekend getaways, but epic holidays around the world.

How to do this? You can go volunteering or you can go beach-bumming. Great places to check out first are New Zealand, Australia and for more adventure, Africa.

2. You are mending a broken heart.

Going on a road trip will likely shake away the break up blues. Travelling can give you plenty of personal time and also provides a great chance of meeting someone new. Rio’s the best place to check out for its party spirit.

3. You are dealing with midlife crisis.

This is a time where you should expose yourself with life to put your priorities in perspective. This is the time where you can pamper yourself, meet new people, rekindle your old flames or just have fun travelling the world with friends, old and new. You can go on a retreat too in Goa or just have fun in Route 66.

4. You need a new career path.

While thinking about it, you can try taking a redundancy package and you can travel the world. Choose packages that go en route to Bangkok, Papua New Guinea and Madagascar.

5. You are retiring.

Who would be there to stop you if you retire? This, not only is the best time in life to travel but might possibly be the last chance you can get to see the whole world. You really don’t want to stay at home and baby sit kids. You’ve been there and done that already, now is the time to fly away.

Try visiting places in Australia, Bali and the Bahamas.

6. You feel compassion.

With today’s left and right calamities and disasters, the world sure needs a good heart filled with compassion to lend a helping hand. Not only were you able to fulfill your desire to travel, but most of all, you help make the world a better place.

7. When there is no reason at all.

The truth is that, you don’t need reasons to travel. Travel gives you perspective in life that you won’t see if you are just stuck in one corner of the world. This is life, this is experience.

You don’t have to justify your travels to the Greek Islands, Hong Kong or anywhere in the world that you would want to go to.
