Mount Fuji Climbing Season Begins
Climbers hike along a trail to the summit of Mt Fuji on July 2, 2015 in Fujiyoshida, Japan. Mt Fuji is Japan's highest peak and was named a UNESCO Heritage site in 2013, due to the popularity of climbing on Mt Fuji concerns for the preservation of the area have forced local governments to look at ways to control visitor numbers. During peak season, between July and September the summit trails on Mt Fuji are so congested with climbers they are close enough to touch. In 2014 the Yamanashi prefectural government extended traffic restrictions on vehicles entering the toll way to the foot of the mountain, as a result climber numbers for the July- August period of 2014 was down 21.6 percent to 243,662. As the 2015 climbing season begins, local governments are again looking at implementing traffic restrictions and are considering introducing a ´1,000 climbing charge per person, but have seen resistance from local businesses, complaining that the restrictions would interfere with tourism and effect their business while not significantly bringing down climbers.

Traveling the world had always been a popular dream of people of different ages. From that six-year-old boy who flips the pages of his father's atlas every night, to that grandpa who uses a crane to walk that can only tell his grandkids to explore the world while they're young and healthy because he failed to do it when he had the chance.

Nothing can ever beat the experiences of traveling, from learning the different cultures and history, to exploring and seeing the wildlife, and everything in between. Here are five reasons why people should take some time off from their busy lives and travel the world while they still can:

Traveling can change how a person sees and understands the world. Traveling means stepping out of the comfort zone, it also means discovering how people from different places all over the world treat their kind and how much importance they give to their surroundings. If this isn't the goal, then what is?

Traveling lets people build special relationships. One of the most exciting things about visiting foreign places is making friends. Those friends that travelers make along their travels instantly become special, they become an unforgettable memory. They are the first things that would pop-up in a traveler's head when he's reminded of the particular place where they met.

It can enhance the communication skills too. Traveling requires communication. A traveler must communicate with the people from the places that he visits, thus, not only it can enhance a person's communicating skills, it can also encourage a traveler to learn a new language - a total win-win situation.

The adventures and experience, the best things about traveling are the irreplaceable and unforgettable memories. People are always hyped up with spontaneity and adventure, and traveling might just to the trick.

Traveling is the perfect way to challenge oneself. Through traveling, especially traveling solo is a whole new way of challenging oneself. From having to survive daily in a different place alone - to getting lost in the endless maze of the streets in a foreign country, and being able to overcome a challenge can definitely grant satisfaction.
