7 reasons why it is important to travel

When you think of Nha Trang, Vietnam, resorts and beachside living usually come into mind. Culture and cooking do not. But like most of Asia, the food here is served in abundance and is all about bringing family and friends together.

On a recent trip to Cam Ranh where I was hosted by The Anam Resort ( about 20km from Nha Trang), I was able to delve a little deeper and discover some of the cultural aspects of this laid-back town. This was done in the form of a cultural and cooking day with Nha Trang Cooking Class.

I believe to truly immerse yourself in a country, you must understand its food culture. This is especially true for Vietnam as their strong French influence is seen in different aspects today.  I just love cooking tours for many reasons and apart from the obvious (eating all day) you really do get to see another side of local life. We shopped at local markets, was invited into a local home and cooked local dishes. There is a reason why this tour is called “From my family to yours”.

Here is our recap of a truly delicious day with Nha Trang Cooking Class.

Don’t worry, everyone will still be there when you return

Most people are afraid of leaving their families or that they can only accomplish something with your help when they travel. In this case, you may feel very attached to your family, friends, or partner, and you worry that if you leave for a long time, you will return to a stranger’s home.

Usually, though, your change isn’t so drastic that you don’t appreciate the little things in life that used to fulfill you. Everything will be the same as when you left.

It is something you will never forget

You will meet people from different countries, social statuses, and cultures. You will see all kinds of landscapes and get to know beautiful destinations. It is an adventure that you can tell your friends and family about.

Help you to get to know yourself

There will be many extreme situations in which you will have to prove your mettle. You will discover aspects of yourself that you were unaware of, and the trip will help you shape your personality. Most people, after their journey, end up with a new perspective about themselves that tends to be positive.

An excellent way to break away from routine

The majority of the time, we are immersed in a routine that puts us on automatic. It is certainly possible to be happy in routine, but it is never a bad thing to break out of it. From time to time, it is essential to pack a suitcase, get to know another part of the world, and experience another way of life.

Open your mind to other cultures and people

When you travel, you meet people from very different cultures. Make sure you spend some time in each place and mingle with the locals as much as possible. At the end of the day, it is the experience that makes a lasting impression, not the scenery.
