It has actually been proven that travelling makes your life better, and now there is no stopping us! Travelling is such an amazing and rewarding experience and will help you so much in the future. Here are just a few ways of how travel makes your life better:
- You become a storyteller
Travel gives you so many rich experiences that you will never forget, turning you into the perfect story teller. Our
expeditions are unique and ‘off the beaten track’ creating an amazing new and exciting adventure that you may otherwise not have the chance to take part in. You will meet different types of people, experience different types of cultures and take part in activities that will leave you speechless. But after all that you will return home with the most precious memories and be able to express these through your stories. Everyone loves a good story and yours will blow them away.
- Develop new skills
You learn skills without even realising it. You become an active person trying new things and new adventures, which develop into new skills. A lot of our Pioneer adventures give you a chance to learn native skills. For example, on the Borneo West to East Crossing in the town of Dayak you will learn Jungle Survival Skills such as; hunting catching fish, setting trap etc. Whether this is communication skills, creative skills or practical skills like learning how to sail or how to dive, you will find things you never knew you were good at.
- You will have friends all over the world
You meet so many different people when you are travelling, and make friends wherever you go. Whether you are travelling individually part of a group, or on a family adventure you will become more sociable as you interact with different people that you meet on your journey. Exploring like a local is the best way to get a proper insight into another person’s culture and way of living, allowing you to get the most out of your holiday. Pioneer adventures give you plenty of time to interact with the locals and allow you to learn about their traditions and rituals. You will meet people and make friends with people that open your eyes to a different world and give you a new perspective on life. Socially interacting with new people and making friends also gives you a massive confident boost, which leads onto the next point.
- You gain confidence
Travelling isn’t always an easy thing and is never as straight forward as it first seems. But putting yourself out there by exploring a country or destination that you may not have been to before will provide you with so much more confidence. You may not think it but just doing activities that you wouldn’t normally do on a day to day basis increases your confidence tenfold. Additionally, talking to new people and interacting with different cultures will also give you a huge confident boost. It provides you with new experiences and leads you to a new level of confidence which makes you feel like you can now achieve your own dreams.
- You will become more employable
You have travelled, and in doing so, met so many different people, had plenty of different interactions and experienced different situations. The confidence that you gain during your travels will shine through as you talk to employers at interviews and the social skills that you have gained whilst in different countries will give you something more compared to other candidates. Employees look for these practical skills in real life, not just on paper and what can be taught in class room.
- You become an adventurer
The more you achieve the more adventurous you become! All our Pioneer holidays are packed full with different activities and adventures allowing you to try something that you might not have done before. Whether it is rafting, kayaking, hiking, cycling, snorkelling or diving, Pioneer Expeditions will have something to suit. You can live life to the full and this feeling won’t stop when you return back home. You will always be an adventurer.
- You will learn to go with the flow
Travelling isn’t easy, it isn’t simple and things go wrong! But when you can learn to just take every obstacle as it comes then it isn’t as bigger problem. This is a great skill in general and will make you see everything in a more positive light as you deal with the problem. It allows you to take the positives out of a situation making you a more positive person.

- Broadens your horizons
Experiences can change your perception of the world. New places, different cultures, and a whole range of adventures will help you to learn from experiences and the way you look at the world around us. Pioneer Expeditions aims to give our clients the ultimate experience with a wonderful mixture or adventure, wildlife and culture. All of which will give you a different perspective of the world. It can make you more grateful of what you have in your life as well as getting a different perspective of other countries and ultimately a greater understanding of life.
- You recognise an opportunity
You will learn that life doesn’t always go to plan, that things happen for a reason- and the people you meet and places you stumble across are what you will remember.
- You learn you CAN do it
You did it! Travel isn’t always easy, in fact 22% of Brits have never been on a plane before and only 40% of Americans own a passport. But you have joined the growing number of people that have travelled and you will now have a fresh attitude towards life. You can dream big and reach your goals and are ready to reach for new challenges.
