#3: When you travel, you are stepping outside your comfort zone, for one thing. Even if your destination is keeping it local or internationally , you are still experiencing new things.
Mark Twain said it best:
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.n- a little profound but very true! Get out there and just do it!
