List of Advantages and Disadvantages of Travelling Abroad

Travelling has become popular in recent years. What are the advantages and disadvantages of travelling?

Let’s take a look! Here are all the pros and cons of travelling that you can expect to encounter on the road.

The Advantages of Travelling Abroad

Travelling’s packed full of advantages. In no particular order, here are the main ones…

1. You Meet Incredible People

Of all the benefits to traveling, it’s often the people you meet that make the experience of travel so unforgettable.

You meet people from all walks of life, with totally different values, stories, and aspirations.

Moreover, you meet people with whom you’d never usually cross paths. Personal differences don’t matter as much on the road though. You’re all doing the same thing: having an adventure and seeing the world.

You can make friends in an instant on that foundation alone.

It’s ironic…

Many people dislike the idea of solo travel for fear of getting lonely.

Yet the reality is that it’s all too easy to meet like-minded, lovely people to spend time with! All told, a major travel benefit is the lifelong friendships you earn along the way. Whether you stay in touch or not, they’ll walk with you forever in memory.

2. You Explore Somewhere New

One of the biggest benefits of travel is that you get to visit beautiful places that you’ve never been to before!

You grow up hearing about distant lands and exotic cultures in stories like these; watching TV shows about intrepid adventurers, ancient ruins, and natural wonders of the world.

And then you go travelling and see it with your own eyes! This, for me, is one of the primary reasons for travelling in the first place.

Without travel, your world’s limited to your house, friends, family, and local neighbourhood. Travelling bursts that bubble. You step outside the norm and realize how much there is to see.

Ironically, the more you travel, the bigger the world seems to get.

Wondering what to take on your travels? Check out this post full of packing list ideas.

3. You Have an Adventure

My own wanderlust is driven by a desire for adventure.

I don’t know why, but I’ve always yearned for it, ever since I was a kid!

It’s a central reason why travelling is important to me. It’s about independence, taking control of my life, getting out there and doing something different.

For me, travel is really living. It gets to the very heart of what it is to live life in a vibrant, engaged, intense way.

Go travelling and forge memories that will last forever. Isn’t that what it’s all about?

4. You Witness Immense Beauty

Another reason why you should travel is that it takes you to some of the world’s most beautiful places.

Beauty’s everywhere and you don’t have to travel a thousand miles to find it. But there’s no denying that travel lays it on a plate for you!

You find yourself in places of such sublime beauty that it defies belief.

It gets to a point where you actually start losing touch with it. You find yourself thinking “oh, another waterfall”, or “ah yep, another snow-capped mountain”

In other words, you get spoiled!

Quick N.B.: With all that beauty on offer you’ll want a camera to picture it! Here’s a list of the best backpacking cameras out there!

5. Make Unforgettable Memories

Another key reason to travel is for the amazing memories you make along the way.

Trust me, if you go away for any reasonable period of time and immerse yourself in the experience, you’re 100% guaranteed to come back with stories you’ll never forget.

And that’s a big deal! I’ve heard it said that, as people, all we really are is a system of memories.

Our very identity’s built upon the things we’ve seen, heard, read about, and committed to memory.

In the same way, we can look at the process of making memories as a fundamental way of learning who we are, and/or becoming someone new.

6. Do Something Different

Life is short.

It’s clichéd to say, but you really never know how much time you’re going to get.

I love this quote:

“So live your life such that the fear of death can never enter your heart.”

Who’s more likely to be scared of dying:

The person who spends their life behind a desk for 40 years, or someone who takes a leap of faith, explores the world, and gets stuck into an adventure?

The purpose of life isn’t to take the less trodden path. But the less trodden path will most definitely help you find purpose in life.

It’s one reason I see travel as more than just a hobby. Travelling is fun, but it also has a profound impact on the way you see yourself and the world.

Of all the advantages of foreign travel, this is up there with the best of them.

7. Build Your Confidence

Why is traveling good? In part, because travel is hard.

Obviously, I’m not talking about “a week on the beach” kind of travel.

I’m talking weeks, months, or years spent away from home, far from friends and family, exploring distant lands, living with minimal funds, and so on.

it’s natural to experience hardship when you travel like that! Among the many challenges (which I’ll talk more about in the next section), you’ll get lost, lonely, homesick, and question what you’re doing.

Yet, one way or another, you get through it all!

And overcoming adversity like that’s a sure-fire way to grow your confidence. The meekest, most insecure, and mothered person in the world can come away from travelling with heaps of newfound confidence.

8. Learn About Yourself

Your confidence on the road grows at about the same rate as your self-understanding!

It’s another of the most invaluable benefits of world travel.

There’s nothing quite like stepping out of your bubble to realise who you actually are.

I can vouch for this one. Self-awareness is a lifelong process, but I always arrive home from travel feeling far more aligned with who I am.

(Video) Advantages and disadvantages of working abroad/overseas

It’s difficult not to!

All those new people you meet, ideas you come across, cultures you learn from, things you see, and experiences you have…it all leads to self-discovery.

You get home from travel feeling distinctly different from the person who left it months before.

Here’s another top article about the role of travel in self-development!

9. You Recoup, Unwind, De-Stress, Move On…Heal

Here’s another of the main reasons to travel more:

There’s something inherently healing about it.

Throughout time, people have gone travelling to explore, learn, see, and live.

But there’s often deep pain, and the need to escape from it, lurking somewhere in the background.

If you need an opportunity to stop, move on, recover your energy, and generally lick your wounds, then consider going travelling.

You don’t need a plan, you just need time. You don’t need a goal, you just need to be open to the experience.

I don’t know how it works, but travel offers a soothing balm to the cuts and bruises that life can throw at you.

Quick point of interest: Some travellers take crystals with them for good luck! To learn more, here’s a guide to the best crystals for travel.

10. Expand Your CV

One of the final benefits of traveling abroad is to do with getting a job!

Many people baulk at the idea of travel because it means creating a gap on their CV.

“How could you possibly explain that year abroad to a prospective employer?”

Yet the reality’s that travel can actually make you more employable. After all, it demands maturity, tenacity, problem-solving, independence, language skills, time-keeping ability, people skills, and more.

What employer wouldn’t want a team member with those qualities?

Remember, we don’t live in the 1950s.

Travel’s so common now that most employers are used to it. They may even be surprised if you haven’t been away!

Secondly, the way we’re working is changing too. More and more of us are pushing against the typical “one-career-for-life” mentality.

Gaps, random roles, periods of unemployment, and travel, just go hand in hand with that!

Can you articulate the value of your time overseas? Then you can justify it to a future employer.

The Many Advantages and Disadvantages of Travelling Abroad — What's Danny Doing? (4)

The Disadvantages of Travel

As much as I love being on the road, there are both travelling advantages and disadvantages you encounter along the way.

Let’s move onto the disadvantages of travelling abroad.

1. It’s Expensive

First thing’s first: travel requires money!

Sure, there are ways to travel for less, and having limited funds doesn’t have to stop you from doing it.

But, in reality, without money in your bank account, travel becomes far trickier.

In exactly the same way, going travelling depletes your bank balance! That nice nest egg you’d built? Expect it to shrivel up before your eyes! Unless you can make money as you go, there’s normally not a lot left when you get home.

And, speaking from experience, this isn’t easy to handle.

You look at your mates who’ve been working while you’ve been away. They’re buying cars, houses, and doing cool stuff and you have barely a penny to your name!

You might have to live back with your parents and/or get a menial job to pay the bills or rent.

2. You’re Out of the Loop

Unless you’re travelling locally, hitting the road can take you thousands of miles away from home.

After an initial teething period, you get used to it, become immersed in the experience, and being away from loved ones feels easier.

But life goes on without you there too!

You don’t go to the parties, you miss out on the latest gossip, and you aren’t privy to the general goings-on. You can get home and find that you’re no longer up to speed with the group.

It can be easy to feel alienated and on the outskirts when you first get back.

3. You Miss Important Events at Home

A related disadvantage of travel is that you’ll almost certainly miss out on important events back home.

For example, I missed my Dad’s 60th birthday a couple of years ago because I was travelling. I was painfully aware of my family being together while I was on the other side of the world!

I’ve also missed family holidays, my brothers’ birthdays, friends’ weddings, and multiple Christmas days.

I’m doing cool stuff all the time, which is a definite silver lining, but missing these events are always makes me question if travel’s really worth it! They’re some of the loneliest times on the road.

4. You Feel Homesick

Almost everyone gets homesick on the road.

And for good reason!

You’re miles away from your nearest and dearest, missing all those big events I talked about above. You’re often lonely, out of your comfort zone, and missing your mum’s cooking.

Feeling homesick’ entirely understandable, but still never fun. It can sap the enjoyment from any trip for as long as it lasts.

5. You Fall Behind on the Career Ladder

Travel’s good for your CV, as we’ve seen.

But you undeniably get home and have some “career-catch-up” to do (…assuming you want a certain career).

After all, your peers have had a decent head-start! While you’ve been away, they’ve been working.

They’re getting promotions, pay-rises, and progressing up the ladder while you have to start from the bottom.

And the longer you travel? The bigger that gap gets.

When you eventually come home, looking upwards at your friends’ success isn’t easy. And, with your travels now just a memory, it can be difficult to feel great about your decision-making…

6. It’s Tiring

This is a big one for me: travelling is bloody tiring!

You don’t expect it.

You’re used to vacations where the sole purpose is to rest up and relax. You come away feeling rejuvenated.

By contrast, travelling is food for the soul, but it’s rarely a relaxing affair.

You’re on the go all the time, moving from one place to the next, eager not to miss out on anything. All those new foods, people, languages, sounds, smells and places are there to experience!

You can easily burn out if you aren’t careful.

7. There’s (Potential) Danger

The potential for harm is a common reason many people decide against travel.

And yep, the prospect of long-term (especially solo) travel is daunting. It requires a leap into the unknown that goes against all of our innate survival instincts.

It’d be a flagrant lie to say there’s no danger out there.

Every year you hear awful stories of innocent travellers going missing, or being mugged or killed overseas. Those stories are awful and frightening and fuel the idea that travelling’s dangerous.

It can be, clearly! However, with appropriate precautions and general common sense, you have to be unlucky to come into harm’s way.

Also, get yourself some high-quality travel insurance.

It can’t prevent the bad stuff from happening. But it will relieve the practical and financial implications if it does.

As much as anything else, though, travel insurance gives you peace of mind. Even if you never need it, you know that it’s there- just in case you get unlucky. The result? You can get back to enjoying your time away.

8. You’re Forced to Confront Your Issues

Nobody’s perfect.

We all have our insecurities, weaknesses, neuroses, prejudices, and vices. But at home, surrounded by everything we know and everyone who loves us, it’s difficult to face up to them.

Often, it takes a change of environment and a novel context to showcase our problems.

Remember that advantage of learning more about who you are on the road? Well, sometimes that newfound insight has a sting in the tail.

I’ve realised a huge amount of stuff about myself that it would have been easier to ignore!

To name a few: how ignorant I am of the world, how insecure I can be, how anxious I can get, how entitled I can be at times…the list goes on.

This is how travel humbles you. It holds a mirror up and forces you to take note.

It hurts, but I actually count this as a major advantage of travel.

It’s exactly what makes you become a better person (you have to know what needs fixing before you can do it). However, not everyone wants to find out their bad bits, so I’ll leave it in the disadvantages section for now!

9. It Can Be Lonely

I’ve been born and raised in cities.

And I’ve always been struck by the irony that you can feel so lonely in such a mass of people.

The same is true when you travel. There may be times when you are genuinely by yourself. But as I’ve already mentioned, more often than not you’re surrounded by fellow travellers.

That’s almost always the case on the tourist trails.

Yet loneliness can develop anyway.

Exploring the world has a habit of highlighting just how small you are. It can crumble your desire to travel, wring the joy from the experience and have you yearning for the comfort of home.

And it’s all part of the experience.

(Video) Living as an Expat // Should You Move Overseas?

Everyone should learn how to be alone. Creativity, discovery, and self-awareness develop in the silence of solitude and travel’s king at forcing you into it.

10. Coming Home’s Hard

Last but not least, the hardest part of travel is often coming home!

It’s ironic. Saying goodbye at the start of your trip is hard.

Then getting back to that very same place, with the very same people, is even harder. You end up mourning your time on the road.

Coming home’s a shock to the system after all your adventures.

You feel different, yet everything else is the same. It’s the same bed, the same four walls, the same conversations, the same meals in the evenings, the same mundane concerns…It’s hard to wrap your head around.

How has nothing at home changed when you’ve had this profound, life-changing time?

It can take a while to readjust back into home-life. I’ve found that you never want to travel more than in the weeks following your return home.

Now You Know the Benefits of Travelling Abroad (and Its Downsides!)

There you have it: a comprehensive list of advantages and disadvantages of travelling abroad.

Pre-COVID, tens of millions of people would travel in some shape or form each year. And you can only imagine that the same will be the case when this pandemic eventually eases its grip.

You may well be thinking of doing it too!

And, if so, I’d always encourage that decision. Travel will change your life.

However, it’s still a big call! Knowing the advantages and disadvantages of foreign travel may help you decide what to do. Hopefully, this list has given you everything you need to choose the path that’s right for you.

Now I’d love to get your thoughts on this piece! Are you thinking of travelling? What do you think would be the biggest advantage and/or disadvantage for you?
