There are so many reasons why people love to travel—the fun and exciting experiences, the unique things you don't usually encounter in your daily lives, and the lessons you only learn when you travel and get out of your comfort zone. That's why those who travel are some of the most interesting people you'll ever meet!
Take YouTube travel vlogger Wil Dasovich for example. Everyone can pretty much agree that this guy is one of the funniest and most engaging of the crop.

It opens you up to a lot of "first times." "One of the things that I preach in my daily videos is, ‘Do something every day that you've never done before’ and I think the best way to do that is through traveling. You experience every culture and you see things through a different perspective, which you can''t just experience when you stay where you normally are."
It leads you to discover stuff you never knew about before. “Aside from the landscapes, traveling extensively in the Philippines has allowed me see stuff I didn’t know even existed.”
It lets you meet new and different kinds of people. “The best thing about traveling is meeting different people and learning things from them."
It's always a new adventure. "As a child, I never had a dream job and I never knew what I wanted to do, but I just knew I wanted to travel and be able to go around the country. What I'm doing right now has never been about the money, the fame, or whatever else. It's just being able to catch all these new experiences.”
