The Main Reasons Why You Should Travel

Holly Williford (Guest Blogger) for Copper River Bag Company on 24th Oct 2022

At Copper River Bag Company, we love to travel. That is why we’ve dedicated a great deal of time creating rugged bags designed specifically for the needs of fellow travelers. Chances are that if you’ve done a fair share of traveling, then you know the value of a good travel bag. We tried to keep our travel experience in mind when creating the designs of our line of travel bags.

Meet New People

Although all people share certain characteristics, there is something to say for different cultural perspectives in different areas of the world. The only way to truly learn about those perspectives is to go immerse yourself among the people of the area. You’ll be surprised how much you can learn from people when you chat them up, so make sure to be ready to open up to the locals when you are abroad.

Gives You an Excuse to Buy Gear and Gadgets

Travelling gives us yet another excuse to buy new stuff. Obviously, we’re going to bring up the fact that you could buy a new bag for that trip coming up. For travel people often by new cameras, clothes, digital gadgets and other goodies to enhance the experience of travel, so allow yourself to splurge before a trip to make the best of it!

To Break Outside of the Box

When we get stuck in the grind of the regular routine we can ceased to challenge. There just aren’t the time or range of activities in one area for an individual to reach optimal growth. Travel gives us a chance to face new activities, people and situations that’ll make us work outside of the comfort zone.

You Need some Stories to Tell

Being well-travelled is a sexy trait. It makes you seem more interesting in conversation, and it ultimately makes you have more of a breadth of stories and experiences to share with others. The expansion of self that is earned via travel does help build an identity that is organically intriguing to others beyond just the stories.

You Learn About Yourself

There is nothing like immersing yourself into another location to find out who you really are on the inside. When we are at home, we are in a safe setting where we aren’t exactly challenged. Travel constantly is putting forth new challenge and stimulus for us to process. When you process these things it begins to reveal certain characteristics about yourself that may not be apparent if you never take the jump to travel.


With all there is to gain for travel, it is important that we stretch our legs to explore the world. Just because we are traveling, doesn’t mean we have to skip on luxuries, however, feel that luxury should not come at such a high price, if it can be avoided -somehow.

“A journey is a person in itself; no two are alike. And all plans, safeguards, policing, and coercion are fruitless. We find that after years of struggle that we do not take a trip; a trip takes us." - John Steinbeck
