A friend of mine shared the above header quote on Facebook today, and it really got me thinking about how important travel is.
For me, travel opens the eyes, broadens the mind, and educates us more than we will ever know, and while it may not make us richer in the monetary sense, I do believe that visiting new countries, trying new foods and understanding new cultures makes us ‘richer’ as people – what do you think?
I have been lucky enough to visit some amazing countries, in fact, I have yet to visit a place where I would not wish to return, and I can honestly say that every penny I have invested in travel over the years– has been money well spent (although my bank manager may disagree!).
St. Augustine summed it up for me with “The World is a Book, and those who do not travel read only one page”.
If you could sum up your travel experiences in one sentence or quote, what would it be?
I would love to compile a list to share will all other travel bloggers, so please let your travel inspiration run wild… I’ll work on mine for tomorrow!
