Aside from most likely having the time of your life and making memories that last a lifetime, there are endless benefits that traveling allows you to have. I have come up with 3 of the most important things you gain from traveling:

As college student, I find myself complaining about little things such as school, money, etc. It’s easy to forget that college is a privilege that a lot of people around the world don’t get to experience.
