There is this saying by Bill Bryson. “To my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time…”. This is why we love to travel so much. We get to experience different places, try new things, and meet new people. Booking our flights can be done in the twinkling of an eye. We are grateful for travel innovation, which has made planning more pleasant and very easy.
We’ve compiled a list of things we love about travel and what makes travel more exciting and amazing:
1. Online check-in
You can easily go online and book your flight to any destination in the world. Yeah, no need for a travel agent, you can do it yourself!
We love that we can easily escape the long check-in queues at the airport by checking in online. Most airlines flying from Nigeria to other destinations allow passengers to check-in online 24 hours before departure. The ease of booking and checking in is part of what we love about travel!
2. Beautiful airports
You might have only seen the ‘dramatic’ and amazing Murtala Muhammed International Airport, right? You should see other beautiful airports in the world, such as London Heathrow, O’Hare International, Changi International Airport, and Dubai International. They have stunning terminals, awesome leisure options, free internet access, impressive airport services and many more amazing things. You will be happy to have your flights depart or arrive at these airports. Such unforgettable locations make it easy to see what we love about travel.
3. Transit and stopovers
The amazing thing about stopovers or transit is that you get to explore the destination between 6 to 12 hours or enjoy an overnight stay in the city. It’s definitely worth it!
4. Inflight entertainment
The amazing thing about flying is the ability to overcome boredom with a wide variety of in-flight entertainment options. Watch new movies that your friends have been talking about, catch up on your favourite TV show, listen to music or even play video games. If you are hungry or you need a drink, just call on an air hostess for some inflight treats.
5. Island life
The best place to melt away a day is at an island destination. Think of luxury resorts, scenic beaches, restaurants and spas. Travelling to any island destination will make you love to travel more. Just imagine: Just imagine infinity pools, beach, and the warm sun as you sip cocktails and cuddling up with a new book. This is one of the best travel experiences. Try visiting Maui, Bahamas, Mauritius and Maldives, for your dose of island life.
6. Learn about history
Exploring the history of any destination is one of the exciting things we love about travel. Going on walking tours, visiting museums, chatting to the locals and immersing yourself in the local cultures give you a real sense of the destination you’re visiting. Appreciate where you are and learn as much as possible.
7. New experiences
When we travel, we open our world to new experiences and possibilities. We learn and try new things, say “yes” to something we can’t imagine doing and meet people we will never forget. Adventurous activities, exotic and delicious foods and learning other languages and cultures are all part of the fun. Some standout experiences include diving the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, exploring the backstreets of Kathmandu in Nepal, playing with the Big Five in Kenya, climbing the Table Mountain in Cape Town or roaming the streets of Rome in Italy. All these are what makes travel exciting, and as the saying goes “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions”. Travel makes us whole! And taking pictures keeps the memories of these new experiences alive.
8. Wild adventures
Travelling gives us a sense of adventure. It makes us do what we never thought we could do and pushes our limits. It’s important to keep an open mind before you can develop a love of adventure. When you go back home, you will definitely have exciting tales to tell your family and friends. Adventures are definitely part of what we love about travel.
9. Exotic destinations
Exotic destinations are the world’s best places to visit. There are much more things to see and do outside the shore of Nigeria. These destinations are a feast for the eyes, where you’ll see a blend of contemporary attractions and vintage sights. There are lively markets, trendy shopping malls, picturesque cafés, galleries and museums, amazing restaurants, exotic beaches, regal hotels and resorts, glitzy skyscrapers, crowning architectural buildings and stunning parks. Tell us why we wouldn’t love to travel?
10. The all-inclusive packages
Staying in a place that makes you feel at home is one of the best parts we love about travel. Getting an all-inclusive hotel or package offers so much more value for your holiday. Whether you prefer a more glamourous trip or are happy to backpack your way around, all-inclusive packages offer something for everyone
11. Magnificent architecture
Seeing magnificent architecture excites us when we travel. These massive structures are relics developed by great innovators and it’s always really a pleasure to see them.
12. Free Wi-Fi
Free Wi-Fi? Of course! In Nigeria, it’s not common to visit places and discover that there is an open wi-fi connection for guests or customers. Well, it is no biggie in some other countries and that’s what we love about travel. You get to connect with your family and friends at home when you get free internet access to do a lot of things on the web.
13. Find hidden gems
There are so many hidden gems in the world. Discovering each of them makes travel more exciting and lovable. Seeing and discovering unbelievable things and places like spiky mountains, rugged canyons, glittering coasts, scenic sandy beaches, national parks and so much more. Visiting these places gives us a different perspective on how it’s being presented to people.
All these things make us feel invigorated when we travel. What do you love about travel? Share with us in the comment below.
