Travelling as part of my life.
By Nitu Surojit Dhara
Many people ponder what they should do for a vacation and I realized a lot of people do not seem to share my views about travelling.
I believe it is very important to see the world and different cultures.
It lets us open our minds to new things and we get to experience in existing different ways.
I know that travelling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. We get to forget our problems/issues for a few weeks. It can also help us figure things out that we would not have understood without the distance travelling can give us.
We all have crazy schedules, work or a family to take care of; going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make us realize how important these people are in our life. Like the saying reveals; ‘we never know what we have until we loss it’.
When travelling with friends or family it creates lots of memory for lifetime. These memories will create a bond that nothing can erase no matter what happens with the friendship or relationship. One of the principal values of travelling is that, it breaks the monotony of life and work.
Life, for most people is, in a mad rush from one place to another, from one activity to another, trying to gather as much as possible.
In this process usually people tend to forget, who they are and what they are. For those there is no time to ponder and wonder. They tend to forget also the values of life.
Travelling is time when people relax, reflect and ponder. Most people, after a pleasant travel, return home with a fresh outlook, with a new zeal and a better determination.
Travelling has also a great informative value. It widens the grasp of our knowledge of geography, different cultures and people. Travelling plays important roles in our education. Our education remains incomplete without travelling. Travelling is certainly a basic activity which we should think about at a certain point of our life.
Through it we gains important experience, learn many things about the culture and the history of the countries, lifestyle of the citizens, food habits and so many other experiences we have never thought that they existed.
First of all, I want to point out that visiting different places does not only broaden our mind but also teaches us how to cope with different situation.
Secondly, travelling will provide us with interesting information, which we would not otherwise learn. When we are abroad, it is also important to visit some museums and old buildings.
They will help us to understand better the culture of the other countries. Taking long walks while travelling can introduce to us the ordinary lives of the people.
In conclusion, I will say that travelling can improve our understanding of the world and give us wonderful experience, which we will never forget.
