As you already know in its current state, the world we live in can feel like a scary place. Every ounce of normalcy in our day-to-day lives has been uprooted, and many of us fear to leave our own homes for essential items, let alone for travel. And while the days of social distancing and extended school closures may not be over yet, there will come a time when things will go back to normal.
There will be many things that we’ll get back in our lives and the ability to move around freely and begin traveling again is certainly one of them. This I genuinely believe. Travel can be a great way to reconnect and bring your tribes back together after weeks of panic and uncertainty.
Here are four ways that travel can rejuvenate your tribes dynamics and help them to re explore the world.
1. Travel is a brilliant way to celebrate milestones
Do you have a major milestone in the near future? Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, graduation, wedding, retirement, family reunion, or any number of special celebrations, traveling outside of your norm can help provide meaningful memories that will stay with you forever.
2. Reignites Family and Friendship
Everyone is always busy. It’s hard for families and friends both near and far to make time to see each other and before you know years have passed. When individuals travel together their relationships are strengthened and deepened. By disconnecting from routine and indulging in new experiences, memories are made that will be taken many decades into the future, often outliving some of the older generations.
3. Turns Friends into Teammate
There will come a time during any journey or excursion where you and your tribe may find yourselves in new and unfamiliar environments and situations. These are the moments where the dynamic can shift from friends into teammates. Simple scenarios like finding your way around a big city, navigating a new public transport system or figuring out a menu in a foreign language, brings people together and has them working like teammates.
4. The Importance of Time
Unlike at home, where there are both mental and physical distractions to keep us preoccupied, traveling makes it essential to truly live in the moment. This makes it easier for individuals to catch up and spend quality time with one another. While vacations might seem to fly by, time really does slow down making those special moments string together into days that won’t be forgotten.
There’s truly no better feeling than getting to explore new destinations with the ones you love. Whether it’s your biological family or the people you choose to call family, travel can help bring these relationships closer together. While it most definitely is not the time to travel right now, it is a perfect time to start daydreaming and planning your next big vacation.

The Quarantined Tourist
These days everyone is feeling the effects of the coronavirus. A large majority of us are stuck at home trying to decide how we can either make the most of this current situation or going stir crazy with anxiety. For avid travelers like myself, having to stay put is very frustrating. To relieve my “Fernweh” (an ache to get away and travel to a distant place). I came up
with some ways we can travel without having to physically leave your immediate area.
