Travel broadens the mind

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 the viewing of natural and historical sights, travelling enables a person to meet different people and study their customs, culture and language at close quarters. Meeting different people makes a person broad-minded and tolerant. Travelling brings people closer. Their outlook becomes progressive. Travelling removes prejudices and helps to build goodwill and a feeling of fellowship with others. It helps a person to become a citizen of the world in the true sense. Therefore, never lose 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.
