When you travel, you learn about yourself and about being able to handle diverse social situations.
This can be handy in an office later when you have to work on a team.
Or when you’re collaborating online on a project run by a company optimizing the global workforce by creating a single team with people in 6 countries.
Traveling helps to open you up to new experiences and to be more creative in your thinking.
It helps you to break out of the narrow path that you were raised in to see how others live and think.
All of this is valuable in life to learn about yourself.
You learn to understand what your true boundaries are rather than the more narrow limits of those you once believed.
