Make It A Habit To Visit A New Country Yearly.

By Posted on 0 3 m read 424 views

You should always make it a habit to visit a new country.

I regret not documenting my stay in Singapore on a blog or a vlog. As many of you may know, when I moved to Singapore. I took it with both hands and also travelled to other countries in South East Asia. I am now and so will not allow the past to stop me from talking about my recent travels. For me, talking/writing about it brings it back to life – so you will all be doing me a favour!

as for me I regret to say that I forget ever boarding the plane there and even travelling to the other countries

Since I started travelling, I have made a conscious decision to travel home (Nigeria) every 1-2 years. And so far, I have achieved that. For me it’s been important to know my roots. Every time I do travel to Nigeria – which is well known for her rich culture and traditions. I learn something new about my family and the country. That’s hugely important for me. I have also, which brings me to the title of this blog post. Made it a command to myself that I travel to a new country every year. Not just a new country but a country that I would never ever expect myself to go to. Last year I visited Nigeria. Iceland, Spain, Germany and Morocco. All brand new to me (except Nigeria of course). 

Brand new; what does that mean to someone. What that means to me is that EVERY single time I make the horrid journey to the airport. Go through security and get some nice perfume or make-up from the Duty-Free Shop. There is something brand new about each journey. I notably always forget the experience of the airport which, believe it or not, I hate!  Yeah if you’re always the friend holding everyone – which I always am, it becomes a dread. 

Travel Memories

The things I do love more than compensate though:- the  different cultures, the different environments, the food. Which is mostly very new to me (I’m a pushover for trying new things – I’ve eaten duck feet before; don’t ask!). The architecture, the sense of a different identity, a different life somewhere else in another part of the world; heck even the political structure is usually completely different to my own here in the UK. 

I hope not to disappoint my readers so soon. But my travels will be coming to a slight default this year. Concentrating on more home grounded things and taking a hiatus on my travels . And taking a token off my friends book – “these countries are not going anywhere”.  I shall rekindle my travel-lust in the near future.

While I may not currently be travelling as I may have led you to expect. I do hope you learn the importance of going somewhere new – as often as you can.

What Have I Gained From Travelling?

The most important thing I’ve gained is that my character develops every time I go somewhere new. I always learn something new. I come back with an understanding of a particular moment in my life. That I didn’t get to understand when I was home. Interesting I know. But it might even be as little as learning something about the person you travel with or about yourself. All I know is that I always come back with something!

So I urge you to join me and travel somewhere different this and every year. Open yourself up to learn something new about the people around you and most importantly, about yourself – yes, this self!

So, where are you hoping to go this year? Wishing you an adventurous journey of discovery!
