Appreciating Your Home More

It may sound weird. It seems that when you travel, you discover new beautiful places and countries and you never want to come back home. But, there is no place like home, and you realize it even more when you travel. You start realizing that your home is special in its own way, it has something that the other countries don’t have. When I realized, how beautiful Belarus actually is, I’ve created a website for travelers that are thinking of visiting Belarus. So, travel the world to appreciate your home more!

Open Mind and Less Prejudices

The reason why you should travel is because it will give you an open mind and create less prejudices. I used to be afraid to travel because I had all of these preconceived notions that people from certain countries were bad people. But, once I started traveling the world I realized that wasn’t true and that all over the world humans are pretty much the same. I would estimate that 97% of people are good but the 3% bad ones get the media attention.

Best Education

In my opinion, travel is one of the best forms of education. It opens your eyes to the world, helps you appreciate and learn about different cultures and different ways of life. Whether you’re feasting on unfamiliar foods in far-flung lands, gallivanting the glove or watching wildlife, travelling takes you out of your daily comfort zone and into a wealth of opportunities that you wouldn’t otherwise experience. As Saint Augustine once famously said, «The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.»

Discovering New Cultures

I love to travel because I love learning. It is hard to travel, to truly interact with other cultures without leaning something new. This might be something about the German student movement when traveling through Germany or how courtship works in the Berber culture in Morocco. I love the days when I am traveling that make be just say “huh”. “Huh, I didn’t know that or huh, I never thought about it that way.” Some days travel is a puzzle to solve like when you are standing in front of a subway ticket machine in Prague and you don’t speak a word of Czech.

Expanding the Horizons

The biggest benefit from travel is the understanding that the world is bigger than our small part of it. By traveling, we can see how other people live. Through seeing other cultures we can adopt novel good things that we see and appreciate things about our culture that we didn’t realize were special and unique. I hope that this will increase our empathy in dealing with people even in our own bubble.

Discovering the Beauty of Earth

You should travel to see all the incredible beauty on this earth we are gifted with. There are so many forms of beauty in the deserts, mountains, oceans and fjords. Seeing all these ecosystems can give us a more concrete understanding of what we can lose if we don’t take care of nature.

There are many reasons why people travel. Many people travel to escape from their lives or their problems. Other to know different cultures. Still, others travel because it’s cool… I love to travel because it helps me to be more kind and more understanding with other people. People who never travel are bombarded by a certain kind of propaganda whose purpose is to create divisions and make us believe our neighbors are terrorists. The more you travel the more you’ll find out that we are all the same and all share the same feelings and emotions. Travel doesn’t necessarily make you a better person, but it can definitely help.
