There's nothing more I want to do than travel the world. I truly think everyone should travel. Yes, that means you, your parents, your grandmother, even your friends. It is never too late to go on a vacation! If you're unable to travel by plane, then take a road trip. What's more fun than a vacation? You get to see new things, and learn a lot about yourself.

A lot of people think that they aren't meant to travel. Some are afraid to take a vacation because they don't want to mess up their career, or upset their boss. A common question that people have is, what if I because I'm going on vacation I'll mess my career up, and can't get a new one when I get back? Honestly, I'm here to tell you that will NEVER happen. You'll still have a job when you return, and if you let your boss know in advance that you're going away there won't be any issues.

Some people are worried about the price of traveling. Can I afford a vacation? That's what goes through a lot of people's minds, and they usually think they can't afford one and don't go. As someone that travels multiple times a year, depending on what you do, where you're going, and where you're staying vacations aren't that costly.

You don't have to be rich to travel well. Travel is never a matter a money, but of courage. You are so worth a vacation, and the price shouldn't deter you from going. If I'm being honest, the memories you make from these vacations are priceless. You get to keep those memories and pictures forever.

There are countless benefits of traveling. You get to meet new people, which is always fun because of the friendships you'll make. You get experience life a different way. You get a mental and physical break from your everyday life. You get to be part of a new culture, and try new food. Traveling makes you a more interesting person because you'll make all these amazing memories and people will love to hear them.

Ultimately, traveling will change you. Do yourself a favor and take a vacation this year. You owe it to yourself.

We all have a crazy adventure planned, that we live out solely through our Pinterest boards. It wasn't until recently, when I myself took the trip of a lifetime with two of my best friends, that I realized how good road trips can actually be for both your mind AND body.

Driving = Hippocampus Expansion

Taylor Kellogg

Driving, especially long distances, helps your brain with spatial reasoning. A Sunny Afternoon explains that driving actually helps this region of the brain make calculations and increases brain power. Kinda like sudoku... but on wheels.

New places, faces and experiences = MENTAL WORKOUT

Taylor Kellogg

Think of all the cool things you will see, the hundreds of different people you could meet, and the awesome places you'll explore. This overload of new information to process will help your brain build its capacity.

NATURE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Taylor Kellogg

Fresh air and sunshine is the key to bettering your mind, which leads to bettering your body. Not only do your lungs get a break from pollution-filled air, but the sun boosts the Vitamin D levels in your body to put you in a better mood.

Good company = good mood.

Taylor Kellogg

Choose your travel buddies wisely. Yes, you'll be stuck in the car with them for a LONG period of time, but they also can help with your mental health. The happier you are and the more you laugh, the bigger boost your serotonin levels will get.

You (most likely) will get a lot of good exercise.

Taylor Kellogg

OK, hear me out... I know being cooped up in the car on a road trip isn't very good exercise. It's so important to pick a place that features some sort of physical aspect (I just took a hiking trip to a few national parks in Utah) so you can stretch those legs.

Your mind will thank you for finally going tech-free.

Taylor Kellogg

We're all obsessed with our phones (you are... admit it). Going on a road trip is the perfect way to go unplugged and give your eyes/mind a rest. Less smartphone/email/social media time means less stress.

If you need some backup for convincing your parents to let you go on a road trip, show them this article. You're welcome and travel safe!!!

'Land Before Time' Is One Of My Favorite Movie Series

When you watch a movie for so long and continue to watch it you learn from the characters every time you watch it.

Everyone has watched Land Before Time..right? Well if not allow me to tell you about it and why I enjoy watching them so much. It is part of a 14 movie series and it follows the adventures of five friends going through life together. I enjoy watching the friendship pan out since they are all different types of dinosaurs who were always taught that they don't interact with those who aren't like them.

The movies follow Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, Petrie, and Spike. They become friends after they have to try and get to their families after an earthquake separates them from their families. In the beginning, Littlefoot and Cera are the first two to head to The Great Valley together, Littlefoot got the directions from his mother. His mother died after she saved Littlefoot and Cera from getting attacked by a sharp tooth, then the earthquake happened.

On their way to the Great Valley, Littlefoot and Cera met the others along the way. They first met Ducky while Littlefoot was laying at the water where she was swimming, then it was Petrie, and finally, it was Spike. The unlikely group had to work together to find their way along with trusting that Littlefoot actually knew where he was going. He was using what his mother told him before she passed and he kept hearing her help him along the way.

They finally made it to The Great Valley and were finally reunited with their families. However, for Spike, it was different he was "adopted" into Ducky's family. Littlefoot was reunited with his grandparents, Cera with her father and siblings, and Petrie with his mom and siblings. Together they made it home and they would continue to help each other as well as help the others in the tough times.

My favorite part about all of it is the fact they are different. Growing up watching these movies taught me that it's okay to be friends with those who are different from you and I feel that it helped me make the friends I did and continue to have in my life. For them, they were always told by their parents from a young age that they don't associate themselves with those who aren't part of their kind. Cera's father was the one who was constantly telling her that "three-horns don't hang out with longnecks" and although she was taught this she was always with Littlefoot and the others.

I also enjoy hearing the songs they sing that is associated with what adventure they were on at the time. I enjoy watching them grow and learn with each other as time went on, they were always there for each other and were always ready to help anyone who needed it. At one time they "raised" a baby sharp tooth who later turned into their friend and helped them from his parents.

Although they were different they didn't let that or anyone else stop them from being friends. They enjoyed their time together and would sometimes go behind the adults' backs to hang out. Mostly it was Cera who went behind her dad's back and they ran away once because they thought they were going to get separated and they didn't want to not be friends anymore.
