'So what have you been up?'
A question that can instantly result in a queasy stomach as you try desperately to think of something interesting to recount.
You're not alone. Many of us live busy lives and often fall into well oiled routines where our week's blend together and our minds have little time to relax, reflect and encounter new experiences. But it's important to give yourself a break from the daily grind. There is countless research that shows regular time off is imperative to retain a healthy mind and body. One of the best ways to break the cycle is to book a flight, grab your travel wallet and head off for an adventure overseas.
Travelling overseas provides a near endless list of benefits. Firstly, a holiday can help us break out of 'Groundhog Day' syndrome and provide us with the variety that we are often missing in our repetitious lives. Travel exposes us to difference; new cultures, people, languages, food - all of which helps to make us more accepting and well-rounded people. It can also provide us with experiences that we'll cherish and look back fondly upon for the rest of our lives. If we travel with others, we can also strengthen these relationships through shared experiences or perhaps even find new ones. Travel provides us with a bigger view of the world by expanding our understanding and experience of the one we know.
However even the best adventures can quickly turn into nightmares if you don't stay organised whilst on holiday. The loss of a passport or your travel insurance details when you need them can quickly create anxiety and destroy any zen that you've acquired whilst away. Keeping your important travel documents safe and organised can go a long way to helping you enjoy your holiday more. These days though, you don't have to be that traveller wearing a sweaty money belt tucked under your clothes. There are numerous passport holders available that will do the job and keep you looking sharp.
