According to St. Augustine, “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.”
Traveling is like a school, set outside the comforts of the four corners of your classroom. The world is waiting for you to learn and discover the many surprises of nature, people, religion and culture. It’s fun, colorful and interactive. Much more, the experience and the learnings are there to stay, building up the strength of your character. Allowing you to be independent, mature and tolerant as you travel the world.
Travel teaches us peace and tolerance. Those who travel far and wide are more tolerant compared to those who just stay in one place for the longest time. People who travel get the opportunity to see and experience the many cultural diversities the world has to offer. Furthermore, a good chance to gain friends in the international community, thus developing the spirit of tolerance. As time goes, travelers learn to look more on the similarities rather than the differences. They develop open-mindedness and learn to look at things from a wider perspective. That is why it is highly recommended to travel and visit other countries while you still can. Get out of your comfort zone and open your world to a bigger world.
Do not stop traveling, listening and asking.
