Travel Broadens the Mind

   Travelling is not merely going from one place to another and back. It is the journey and observations that matter.
   A country always thinks the other country as a blood-thirsty, war waging Spartans because of stories from ancestors. But unless you go to that country, how will you know the sameness of the two countries and chip off the baggage left by you ancestors ?
   During travel you will see things beyond you imagination. Right now, your world as students is school. But if you go out and explore the world, your world will be a tiny speck of mud in the whole bog or marsh. A needle in a haystack.
   In school, there is competition to be friends with the most popular kids. In the outside world, that doesn't matter. As you travel, you will make many friends and colleagues. You will see hundreds of the 'Popular kids' go by.
   Travel changes your perspective of the world. Mahatma Gandhi and Swami Vivekanand travelled the whole length of India. They had come for a reason to India but as they travelled they found another thousand reasons to stay.
   Travel broadens your perspective and mind. It helps you to think outside of your safe little bubble of a world. But to do this you must travel and take the initiative. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a step.
  Why do you go away ? So that you can come back. So that you can see the place you from with new eyes and extra colours. And the people there see you differently too. Coming back to where you started is not the same thing as never leaving.

  1. Quotations should be marked in quotation marks. The very last paragraph is a quotation of Terry Pratchett.

  8. I'm been a professional travel writer for over 20 years, and have never come across a better series of reasons for travelling. There are a few minor grammatical errors in the essay (such as using "you" instead of "your") but these should easily be able to be fixed by simply reading the text out aloud. If it SOUNDS wrong, then it probably IS wrong!
