20 Reasons to Quit Your Job and Travel

16. Challenge yourself

I love stories about people who are cycling around the world, climbing the highest peaks or visiting UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Or the two girls who traveled from Thailand back to the UK by tuk-tuk!

17. Practice sports

One of my friends likes marathons and he goes around the world doing them. Another one loves diving and is currently visiting the best diving spots in the world. If you’re passionate about a sport, why don’t you carry on doing it while you’re traveling? I’m sure you’ll find local groups everywhere that will welcome you with open arms.

18. Eat amazing food

This is by far one of the best reasons to travel! If you’re into food and love trying new restaurants, imagine tasting the real deal! The freshest ceviche in Peru? The authentic Pad Thai in Thailand? The one and only Margherita pizza in Italy?

I could go on forever, but you get the idea. Apart from eating, you could also learn the dishes by taking cooking classes.

Still, why some out there can state the WWE does profile some wrestling, it is a far cry from the true techniques that are involved in the sport itself.
