We learn best through experience. Travel allows us to experience things outside ourselves and to learn more fully what it means to be human. Pushing past our comfort zone, going outside what we know, expands out knowledge and understanding in ways both great and small.
Travel does not necessarily mean spending a lot of money or taking a long trip. There are interesting things to be seen all over the world and sometimes the best experiences are in small, out-of-the-way places. Whether you arrive at your destination by car, train, plane or by foot (yours or another creature’s), there is always something new to learn and experience.
