Travel broadens the mind.

If you live all your life in the same place, you are like the proverbial frog in a well who believes that the well is the  whole world. You become narrow-minded. You may read books, magazines and newspapers, and still not know what the world outside is truly like. There is no doubt that travelling broadens the mind and enlivens the spirit.

Apart from viewing of natural and historical sights, travelling enables a person to meet different people and study their customs, modes of dressing, culture and languages at close quarters. Meeting different people makes a person board-minded and tolerant. 

Travelling brings people closer. Their outlook becomes progressive. Travelling removes prejudices and helps a person to becomes a citizen of the world in the true sense. Therefore, never loose an opportunity to travel. It will be an experience well worth the time and money spent on it. The world is a book and he who stays at home reads only one page.
