The wonders of traveling
26 Sept 2014 | From Maria of Russia
Traveling is one of the most finest things there is. One should always make time to travel. Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life - our crazy schedules, work, family, and all those dull 'realities' we face day by day. We get to forget our problems and issues, help us figure things out, and distance ourselves from the various things that, well, you want to get away from. It diverts our minds to something more interesting and worthwhile. Not only that, it also increases our knowledge and widens our perspective - about yourself, about life, about what you need to be happy.
As Gustave Flaubert said — 'Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.' Without Travel, you can’t really know the place you’re from. Traveling makes us embrace new cultures, widens our geography, lets us enjoy life like never before and lets us break out of our shell. We meet new people, connect with them, and make friends. Traveling gives us a sense of accomplishment, and it lets us create beautiful memories.
