Travel is the activity of making
journey to another geographical location other than where we live. Travel
is one of the important activities of our life. We are compelled to travel often because of
family functions, meeting friends, and attend official duties. We travel
for pleasure on excursions and for visiting touristic places.
Travel is an important diversion for us from daily mundane
routine. Travel teaches us many things that we cannot learn from residing
at a place. Travel enriches our knowledge and increases our wisdom. Travel costs some amount.
One needs to take precautions and needs to make plans for the journey.
However, it is worth making all the arrangements and travelling.
Travelling to different regions we learn new cultures, practices, life styles and so on. We learn about the world. We can adopt good things from the people there. We learn new scientific, financial, and geographical knowledge too. We learn how to manage ourselves in a foreign location. We can learn some discipline, to impress others, to improve up on our skills, to speed up ourselves and learn to fit in to different situations. Finally, we can learn to win and excel in foreign environments.
The exposure to other cultures and people, one realises more of one self, one's own good and bad qualities. So a travel could do a lot good to oneself.
