Why You Need to Go to Europe

Let us tell you why you need to go to Europe.  The food, the sites, the history, the culture, and lifestyle – of course, we are going to share a few of our favorite Wild Bum Travel Guides below. But, first, let’s talk about the science behind a European vacay. Yep. You read that right. The science is exciting – almost as exciting as stepping foot in one of these magical countries.

Benefits of International Travel

Head over to trusty ole google – plug this into your search bar and you will find a million reasons why international travel is so essential for our health and well-being. We are going to touch on just a few.

  • Enhances creativity. According to Adam Galinsky, a professor at Columbia Business School, there are a number of studies that link international travel and foreign experiences to the increase in our cognitive flexibility and depth. Furthermore, this is enhanced by getting involved in different cultures, meeting new people, and experiencing new things abroad.
  • Builds up our immune system. Traveling abroad exposes us to different environments and pathogens, which in turn creates stronger antibodies in our immune system.
  • Gives us a deeper perspective. I like to say that if I were to watch the news and not experience this beautiful world, I would think that people are bad and everything is wrong in the world. While there are a lot of issues, there is never a safer time to be alive. When I travel abroad it debunks what fear is induced by the news and I see the good in people. Humanity does exist. International travel gives us the gift of broadened thinking, new connections and changes that are made to our everyday life, for example.
