Why Travel Matters:

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness.” – Mark Twain

Why travel matters, unless you have been to London and the rest of the world!

It does feel like ‘magic’ when a lil seed is planted, you start to wonder why travel matters to you right now, this very moment! You wait impatiently for your spouse, best fried, boo, children etc to come so you can go google the best place to go…or maybe you already know and you want to “Sell them the idea!”  Can you relate?

Does the thought of meeting new people, eating in exotic locations, smelling new aromas and smells, excite you beyond measure?

Then let’s ask you a question again; have you ever wondered why travel matters to you and others of similar elk? Why travel matters to so many, the travel industry is a Trillion dollar business and not looking to slow down anytime soon. In-spite of attacks on innocents about their business by religious fanatics. Makes  even more important to ask yourself why travel matters!

That power and feeling that you feel, when you tell your young ones that they are going on a Disney vacation for 2 weeks all inclusive…have you ever allowed yourself that feeling! Do you dream of it? If you haven’t yet, IS there any thing holding you back from realizing your dreams of travel?

Jim Menge does share the technical nitty gritties of why travel matters and the positive disruption that travel creates on LinkedIn!

Why travel matters for who we are and what we do?  Its why,

“tourists don’t know where they’ve been and travellers don’t know where they’re going” Paul Theroux

In order to know where you are going you have to plan and take the first step. Julie Syl Kalungi #traveltips via @kkpauli Click To Tweet So how about we help you create that Bucket list? How about you start collecting travel

What do we mean by this?

Write down all the places where you wanna go, why, with whom…How this would make a difference in your life?

See travel matters in your relationship building. So when you do the above exercise, you will have put out your request to the universe…And if you take the relevant action focusing on The Feeling of being already where it is you wish to go, one by one, your bucket list will keep depleting, Yet grow bigger.

Not because you haven’t seen the places on the list, but because you are seeing so many you keep ticking off and adding!

why Travel Matters to you and the world! #travelgram #traveltips



We are sure you have either been told or heard the words below:

Travel makes you;


richer and

happier…true…NOT SO MUCH… REALLY???

#3 Not really… HEALTHIER: Why do we say this? Let us ask you a question: Ever been on a road trip on  a dirty bus and no toilet facilities for emergencies?

Maybe you have been to an airport with people sneezing, and coughing on you?

Ever been on some dirty planes… we have. Without naming names we have been on some flights which didn’t deserve the fee we paid. Dirty seats, pockets with safety notes hiding dirty former passenger stuff, snot, chewing gums, or leftovers…Seriously if we looked for these things in travel we would be wondering why travel matters.

Not just to us but the millions of people in an airport or National Bus express depot worldwide waiting in excitement for their next adventure or heading home from one. SO NOPE it may not be As healthy physically as we would like to see it! But who is counting…

Especially not when you see your child’s face as they come off a Disney vacation water park ride the umpteenth time. The sheer joy on their faces as they see Mickey and Minnie mouse.




#4 Lets tackle the RICHER bit…We see lots of not rich travellers. We have been there, put together our life savings for a trip. And we see people in airports, resorts, hotels, buses, on trains etc who definitely don’t look like they are raking it in. So lets agree that travel per se doesn’t on the face of it make you richer…!

But wait a minute…
Who said it would make you richer financially? Money is all about the Law of attraction and deservability not want or need. Yet why travel matters is IT has the potential to make you Socially, Culturally, even Economically Richer!

How about when you get on a flight and you are presented with a lil drink to relax you, whether water, a little vino, a can of soda or lager and its presented with a huge smile! Enjoy. See mine below….sure put a smile on my face and made it all a little better

Travel MAtters when the service comes with a smile! #KLMhappytohelpteam

Travel has truly enriched out lives and financial well being because we know what we want, like many others on this planet!  That’s another reason why travel matters.

#5 Does travel MAKE YOU HAPPIER? Ha not when you look at the myriad of angry travellers…People who don’t seem to be happy at all you wonder why they left home, or bothered paying for a trip. Then you have to remember its not just you is it. It could be a business trip and the man/woman’s job is on the line. It could be a nightmare commuting to and from work so “This Travel” inst necessarily a bowl of fun for the commuter…

And so again travel by itself isn’t necessarily healthy, rich or happy…So you must be wondering why travel matters and why we seem to be shooting off about it?

Because when you travel and have a great experience, you save memories that last a lifetime. you recommend the location, you cant stop talking about it for weeks. Your children think you are a hero, super man cant compete…You start to get the picture? 


Allow us to elaborate:






Travel in itself is an amazing economy support. According to the 2015 Global Benchmarking Report every dollar  you and I spend on travel generates 3.2 dollars across the economy.

That means that every dollar spent on flights, hotels, car rentals, cruises, restaurants and tourist attractions has a major impact on local and global economies…how amazing is that for why travel matters on this planet?  

You see travel also directly employs 105 million people worldwide. For every $1 million in sales generated thirty seven jobs are created. (Info from Report above.) 

THE ABOVE types of travel are good for your health, wealth and sense of well being. They bring joy. Not just into your life but others too, they are not just about you…Once you get away form me, me, pretty please, they do make you spiritually and socially richer. You will actually See more. Do more and Be more.

Have you experienced or dream of seeing the Smoke that thunders at the Victoria falls in Zimbabwe?

Maybe you have swam with dolphins in such clear blue waters you can see the bottom of the sea?

Ahhha now we are getting warm….for when you see such sights you forget the smelly bus, the sneezing snotty child sat next to you on a 10 hr flight or the farting so and so on the seat in front…(We have experienced these things my dear)


#7 Did you Know Travel Makes You Smarter? 

Aah you dont seriously think you are gonna become Sir Hawkins? Now, what travel will do for you is make you more worldly. Where we grew up, we considered well travelled people the beesnees. We envied them, we wanted to be like them when we grew up! 

We truly believe that travel expands your horizons, your way of thinking. It challenges your stereotypes and gets you seeing things in a much broader more humane way. 

Truly; You are Only as Smart as Your experiences.


 Travel Makes You more human, less  prone to discriminate, more accepting! Very mych what Mark Twain says on the package! πŸ™‚ 

[clickToTweet tweet=”Travel Makes You more human, less prone to discriminate! #travelmatters #traveltuesday” quote=”Travel Makes You more human, less  prone to discriminate, more accepting!”]

  1. Hi, Julie. Traveling does open up your worldview. I think youth from first world countries should swap places with youth in third world countries for 90-days. Imagine the self-awakening that would happen…

  2. my mom has always told me how important it is to travel, it teaches you about the world, the culture and gives you a new pair of eyes. you also get to know a different part of yourself you didn’t before.

  3. Our Family World

    Traveling is the best way to learn about a different culture, a country, a way of life. I wish I could travel more and cross out more items on my bucket list. However, I have been tied down with so many responsibilities lately that I am not sure if I will be able to do some traveling in the near future.

  4. Victoria H Woods

    Wow! I love this post and I totally agree! I love traveling for all purposes and to all places! It’s wonderful. I agree that travel makes you happier and smarter, and also more human – if you allow it to, that is.

  5. I like how you dived into the health part realistically. I would love to travel for a living, many places, many experiences. At the end, you’ll stay under one roof with all those memories and be a better person overall!

  6. Traveling is always really exciting in a group, very interesting points you made. I think that traveling is above all, a great learning experience. I love history, so traveling is a no-brainer for me, love to see historical locations.

  7. Travel Blogger

    Great post! I think people are becoming more and more concerned about travel because of safety concerns, but I would not be the same person had I not traveled. It has changed me in so many ways and made me a more compassionate and deeper person. You can’t let fear hold you back.

    1. We have to stand against the cowards that hide behind religion Kait and Go ahead and travel even more. Because trust me if its not your day, no terror can steal your spirit.

  9. Travel is amazing. Travel is even better if it has a purpose. Great topic you have in here.

  10. To travel with a purpose is great. It would be nice to be able to travel for luxury and for vacation, but also being able to help is very rewarding. There are plenty of programs that allow you to reach out to people in other countries that are in need.

    1. So true Carol.

      The Impact, thats why we do what we do, not just for personal pleasure but for the impact we have on the lovaleconomy and people. We love it, Travel matters to us a lot! πŸ™‚

  11. I’ve never understood grouchy people in the airports, in lines at amusement parks, etc. The wait is par for the course, be glad you’re traveling, for sure! πŸ™‚

  12. Traveling is my way of relaxing and escaping everyday life. I’d love to travel more but funds don’t permit it.

  13. We love to travel. I have been on many trips on my own and with my family. I always love the new experience and friends that I make and what I learn about the places I visit.

  14. Travel matters to me for all of these reasons and more. There was a time I thought I’d never be able to walk again or leave my bed. Being able to see places I never thought I’d see under these circumstances, is all the more special. I love meeting exciting new people, seeing sights I’ve never seen before and the food. Don’t even get me started on the food, lol.

    1. Aaaahhh Now you are talking, The Cuisine in different destinations, One of the major reasons Travel Matters to us. But above all, the Global Impact, the smile we spread when we visit those places and add to the local economy. It is so worth it Terri πŸ™‚

  15. Travel? With family/friends? Meeting strangers? Exploring maps? I’m your guy. And hell yeah, it matters to me Very Much.

  16. Travel Blogger

    So true! I know my travels have made me happier, healthier and richer! There is so much to see in this world and every new adventure changes you, and gives you new tools to use in the world.

  17. i love to travel and this really makes sense! i would love to travel all over the world!

  18. Kristine Nicole Alessandra

    You just made me shed a tear. I am an eagle with broken wings. I am homebound with no possibility of travel. My spirit wants to explore but my physical being is tied down to responsibilities. I am so sad. I may never ever get to travel. In my mind there are so many wonderful places to explore. And I just sit here, an eagle with broken wings or better yet, an eagle with amputated wings.

    1. Awwww Kitty,

      Never an amputated Eagle. You may Bedown but not out. You see you can travel with your mind, your eyes, your hands…As in Art. Travel is not just physical. It can be spiritual. How can we help you travel? Please do let us know.
      Julie & Pauli

  19. Traveling is fulfilling, it’s one of the best ways to learn more about yourself and learn more about the world as well. It’s a great way to live, and experience life. Especially when you travel alone.
