Pankaj Saharia : Why Travel ?

Pankaj Saharia is a structural engineer with decades of experience. He is known as a passionate, intelligent professional to business associates and peers around the world.
Though Pankaj Saharia has traveled for business, and has gained many professional benefits by doing so, he also enjoys traveling for personal interest. If you’ve been thinking about an upcoming trip, personal perks of traveling like those below might convince you to set a departure date:

• Learning Traveling allows you to learn about another culture and its history. From walking the streets in search of food to visiting historical monuments, when you are immersed in another city, state or country, you gain knowledge.

• Cultural Connection When you travel, you make connections with other people and other cultures. These cultural connections can change who you are, making you a better, more compassionate person. If you bravely venture to a land in which you do not know the native tongue, you will make many more cultural connections as you pantomime your way through daily communications.

• Knowing Yourself When you are exposed to something new, you learn about yourself. Traveling to different locations around the world will deepen your knowledge of who you are, what you like, what excites you, what makes you curious and what you don’t understand.

• Awakening Curiosity  Exploring somewhere new awakens childlike curiosity. When you see a thing that you don’t recognize or understand, you are faced with an opportunity to be curious. To ask “What is that?” or “Why?”

• Take a Break Leaving home, you take a break from many of your routines and responsibilities for something different. This gives you a disconnect for your day-to-day, a break from the normal and the opportunity for connection with yourself, with others or with the world around you.

• Break Habits Much as traveling can help you take a break, it can help you break habits. Traveling uproots you, and it is much easier not to do something because “you always do it” when you’re away from home. When you return, it will feel more natural not to indulge in a bad habit.

For example, if you have a bad habit of watching too much television, you can book a room without a television in a new location. Whenever you get the urge to watch television, go out and explore your travel destination. This creates a new habit to take home, replacing the old.

Most people, when told travel stories by people like Pankaj Saharia, will ‘ooh’ and ‘ah’ over the prospect of seeing another land, yet many people never seek travel experiences of their own. Don’t short yourself – travel and make your own stories to elicit your own ‘oohs’ and ‘ahs.’
