Reasons To Know: Why Backpacking Trip is in Trend Nowadays
Traveling is inherent to human nature. Let us understand why is something that not everybody in the world does now days, is actually inherent to human nature.
Before the birth of civilization and human civilization as we know it, humans made clans and roamed the world in nomadic clans. Now before we had countries and boundaries and world wars, people were simply looking for the best place that would tend to their needs along with the needs of their clansmen. So they took many years of roaming around the planet to find that resting place, people migrated from one place to the other depending on the weather of places. This wandering was done on foot and if not on foot people used horses and other such animals to help them look for their homeland.
The nomadic tribes when found the best place for everyone, started settlements and later entire civilizations were born to those places. And hence traveling and wandering is inherent to human nature, it is only now with the concept of civilizations and industrializations booming in our worlds and vocabularies, we have so many reasons and excuses to not travel the world. But one must remember exactly why travelling is so essential to the world and especially now.
The 21st century has seen a lot of angst with the way people live and within communities and countries as well. When a person travels, they travel with a mind that is ready to learn - learning new ways, getting to know people, their ideals and lifestyles, their foods and culture and more. When we are ready to learn the other ways of life, we tend to inculcate a being that is inclusive and more understanding of another’s needs. This inclusion and understanding rids us of the blind hate and the negligence of another’s needs and life choices. Travelling to places makes us a better human being, let alone building confidence to face the world.
