To travel is to push the experience of your life outside of the limits of your childhood home. It allows you to see the world through the eyes of people you do not know.
Places you visit, different from your own, that teaches you respect of other’s ways of life. It shows you new ways of thinking, new ways of living, and lessons you can take home to add to your routines.
It punctuates a life otherwise spent in a monotony of work, sleep, weekend. It gives you the chance to be someone different, to be braver and fearless instead of wrapped in layers of anxiety.
The experiences you have will all meld together in your mind. The ones you experience when you travel will be no different.
So search wide, search far, and keep challenging yourself to visit new places.
You never know, you might learn something new.
