Un­wind­ing with fam­ily or tick­ing off the bucket list, what mo­ti­vates you?

QT Magazine - - TRAVEL - WITH SHARON JONES FROM HELLOWORLD RIVERLINK

TRAV­EL­LING al­lows you to break rou­tine and un­plug.

Be­ing away from home helps you to re­ju­ve­nate. Wak­ing each morn­ing, you have the plea­sure of choos­ing what you’re go­ing to eat, what place to ex­plore, sou­venir shop­ping and whether to hit the beach or wan­der through some­where new.

Travel ranges from a week­end away to a long ex­tended hol­i­day.

With a big world, peo­ple find dif­fer­ent things mo­ti­vate them to travel.

Here are the top five rea­sons why most peo­ple travel.

Are any of th­ese yours?

Spe­cial oc­ca­sions

Birthdays, a wed­ding, hon­ey­moon or an­niver­sary – this is in­creas­ingly pop­u­lar as it brings many gen­er­a­tions of fam­i­lies to­gether.

Cer­e­monies can be ar­ranged in pic­turesque lo­ca­tions such as the South Pa­cific, of­fer­ing white sandy beaches, wa­ter­falls, la­goons and palm trees.

Cruises are a has­sle-free op­tion as they of­fer main meals, entertainment, great des­ti­na­tions, on-board ac­tiv­i­ties but also with the flex­i­bil­ity of not hav­ing to spend ev­ery wak­ing mo­ment to­gether.

Hol­i­day

Re­lax and spend time with loved ones, escape the daily sched­ule, new ad­ven­ture, bucket list, scenery, try new food.

Vis­it­ing fam­ily and friends

In the busy life­style of to­day, trav­el­ling can be the best way to take some time out and bring the fam­ily closer to­gether.

Busi­ness

Work is a com­mon rea­son why peo­ple travel, but it also al­lows a rea­son to add leisure onto the work com­mit­ment.

Learn

Learn­ing is a strong rea­son why peo­ple love to travel. They want to ex­pe­ri­ence some­thing un­fa­mil­iar and leave with new skills or knowl­edge.

Meet­ing new peo­ple gives you a glimpse of new cultures and the chance to make new friends home and abroad.
