In 2020, most international travel was impossible. In 2021, we saw it make its way back, but with restrictions in place. Now, nearly one month into the new year, we are finally able to experience what we have been anxiously waiting for: the return of travel.
For this reason, we believe that travel is a way to connect with the world and those around us. The past two years have made it challenging to find connections that we innately long for. But now, we are looking forward to resuming our lives – and your travel plans. This includes those long-awaited family vacations, romantic getaways, solo retreats and unforgettable honeymoons.
As a result, these are the main reasons that the Tenon Tours team is excited to travel more in 2022. To you, that might mean traversing through the Swiss Alps via train, island-hopping in Greece or road-tripping through Wales.
Reasons to Travel More in 2022
Travel allows you to meet new people you wouldn’t typically meet.
In 2021, we ran a poll to get a pulse on the travel industry. The results were enlightening. Nearly 40% of our respondents claimed that what they missed the most about international travel was experiencing new cultures and people. After spending over a year facing quarantines, who wouldn’t be excited to travel and meet new people?
Travel provides you with a much-needed change of scenery.
It allows you to refocus yourself, your goals and your perspective. Traveling to new destinations is guaranteed to inspire you to be your most authentic, curious self. You’ll realize just how much you’ve needed the experience to step out of your comfort zone and be a part of something more.
Ultimately, traveling makes you a more compassionate, well-rounded person.
In the words of Mark Twain, “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Traveling allows us to share our human experiences with others and ultimately connects us to them in a truly unique way.
