Travel Broadens The Mind
Although there is less money around for luxuries in the present financial climate, there is no doubt that most of us still really enjoy the opportunity to take a holiday at least once a year. And even though the concept of a “staycation” – a holiday taken in our home country and even our home town in some cases – is more popular than ever, going somewhere further away is still something to desire.
It is not always easily affordable, but the fact is that a foreign holiday has some things that one in your home country just cannot match. Although some of us will always be against the idea of going away to a place with strange customs and a different language, the fact is that travel broadens the mind, provided you allow it to.
Going to a foreign country gives you the chance to see and experience another way of life. It gives you the chance to try different cuisine, see different architecture and feel a different climate. Though this sounds like hell on earth for some people, the best holidays will always be a bit different – if things are always the same, then what makes them special?
It is worth taking a foreign holiday at least once in your life. The experiences that foreign travel will open up to you are ones worth having and repeating – they really do broaden the mind, and the results can be absolutely enthralling. It can change your life.
