16 reasons why you should spend money on that vacation



+

You know that vacation? *That* vacation that you’ve been putting off forever because you don’t have enough cash? *That* vacation you have been dreaming about for an eternity? Your Internet history contains more travel-porn than, ahem, the actual stuff. Then, what is stopping you from just pressing that ‘Book’ button? Time, money, leaves - all excuses! Here’s why you should spend your money on things that matter.

+


+

1. Because memories from a vacation last forever, and have no expiration date. Unlike material things, that is.


+

2. Because you’re young, hale and hearty. As the years go by, your energy resources will deplete. Sigh, if only we were ACP Pradyuman!


+

3. Because you’ve been dreaming of this for a long time. Make it your reality!


+

4. Because you can save up right now! Drop that 10th beer! Walk that road! You mostly have no commitments - take advantage.


+

5. Because you’ll learn so much. “Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy?” will finally have an answer - it’s real life, baby!

+


+


+

6. Because you’ll have stories to tell. That story about you trekking up a cliff face in Sri Lanka is much cooler than the time you had a food coma.


+

7. Because you might find yourself while you lose yourself. Epiphanies usually happen in beautiful, unknown places!


+

8. Because money can buy you happiness but only for a little while. After a point, you start craving something new, raw and real. Travel.

+


+


+

9. Because you change, grow and evolve as you travel. A swanky new gadget cannot be a part of you. An experience? Hell yeah!


+

10. Because even if something goes wrong, you learn how to deal with it. Sure, you might be in a pickle then, but 20 years later? You’ll know what you learnt.


+

11. Because you’ll meet people who’re completely different from you.


+

12. Because you're going to have conversations while under billions of stars or overlooking a mountain or staring at the beach. And those stay with you and become you.

+


+


+

13. Because you’ll regret not going later. And you don’t want that to happen.


+

14. Because being thrust into the unknown is the first step for getting out of that comfort zone/bed/couch/whatever you’re stuck to right now.


+

15. Because, perspective. Things that seemed liked big problems look small in front of the Taj Mahal. Do it!


+

16. Because it’s time to do something for yourself that matters!
