What Has Travelling Taught You?


We all know travelling is fun but we can also learn a lot of life lessons from it. It can teach us a lot of about the world and ourselves, from changing our perspectives on the way we live and interact, to learning a new language, skill or helping us appreciate different cultures and ways of doing things.

We from Omio are inviting all travel bloggers and vloggers to enter our travel blog competition by telling us about your #travellessons story for the chance to win a city trip worth £300, an Amazon Fire or a Travel Accessories pack worth £30. The lucky three winners will also feature on the Omio Blog and will be able to share their posts with the wider travel audience.

Coming from the English countryside always made me want to broaden my horizon a bit. So I pack my bags and moved to Berlin. I love to travel, go skiing and chomping on burgers.
