Explorace is also a good training for tour guide. There’s nothing quite like discovering a new place on your own; taking it all in without anyone but yourself while competing with other to solve a mission. Anyone who’s done it can tell you that the benefits are endless.
1. You will get to know yourself better
Once you are out there on the road on your own you will be faced with decisions you need to make, fears you need to overcome and discover your true self and how much you are capable of.
Travelling exposes you to raw experiences where you get to know the person inside you, that little kid that always wanted to travel, wander, expand and grow as a human being through exploring different places around the world.
Once you are on your own, you will discover the importance of following and listening to your own heart. You will focus much better and enjoy the experience. You will live and feel now. A destination far away might help you find answers about your true purpose in life and what is it you are really meant to do.
2. It will get you out of your comfort zone
Going to unknown places and destinations will challenge you to learn how to rely on yourself at difficult times. Being away from the comfortable bubble of your home will challenge you in many different ways and test your patience.
Only by putting yourself out there, you will be able to explore this beautiful planet and discover many new and exciting places.
You might be challenged to explain where you are going to a local person or do hiking for hours in the mountains. Both of these experiences will test your ability to overcome obstacles, challenge you and help you grow as an individual.
3. It will boost your confidence
Being on your own on the road will help you gain valuable skills and turn you into a more confident person. The experience of travelling alone will challenge your limits and ability to cope with obstacles on the way which will make you a stronger person and help you grow as a traveller and human being.
Just being on a mission on your own is a challenge itself and all the other things that you will have to organise will help you realise that you can achieve anything you set your mind to only if you keep going.
4. You reflect on the experience better
You can reflect on the whole experience much better because you were the solo traveller who took the courage and action to go and explore exciting places around the world.
Your reflections on the trip will make you realise all the things you learned on the road, the friendships you made, the choices you were faced with and the challenges you overcame. And the whole experience can be more amazing because you can focus on the things that excite you and visit places that interest you.
