Pick world atlas or simply check it online. Refer to the map of your state or province, and see how small your area compared to the entire staff. Now go to the map of your country, and if your area has to disappear, your "big" state or province will be a small part of the country. Keep your map of the continent. At this time you will not find your state or province, and your "big" country will become a small part of your continent. To finish, please refer to the map of the world and that you have noticed? Your country may not disappear, but your "big" continent becomes a "share" of the world.
This exercise demonstrates that you are expanding their worldview, as well as when you are traveling far and wide.
Capital events of the past century, and especially the explosion of the Internet in the past decade, let you know about the diversity of the world. However, no matter how you were aware of the world from their couches and chairs, nothing b & # 39; e to walk to those places for first impressions.
Thus, in the next section we will look at some reasons why you need to travel a lot.
1. You will not only know, but also to feel beautiful places
The media (newspapers, radio, television, Internet), people and books show and tell about the wonderful places. But traveling, you can really feel these wonderful places of the world, as the Hawa Mahal in Jaipur, Rajasthan, India; Venice (Italy) to the gondola and its crafts for numerous waterways; Pyramid of the Sun San Juan Teotsiuakan, near Mexico City (Mexico); In the city center of Casablanca (Morocco), the main port in the foreground – the area Lyatey; Mt. Cook, the highest peak in New Zealand and the Southern Alps, seen across the lake Matesan, on the South Island; American Falls in Niagara Falls, New York; and a typical mosque in Port of Spain (Trinidad and Tobago).
2. You get to know different people and the way they really are
Travel – a great way to expand the circle of friends and increase the understanding of others.
Has numerous trips allowed me to have a lot of intimate friends in many countries around the world. we have a close relationship would not otherwise be.
While living in Africa, I was hardly in contact with white people (and not even think about it), because we lived in different communities, inherited from colonialism. But when I went, for example, in Germany, I became friends with many, with whom I shared many favorite moments. It made my perception of the white people in the party or not at all racist.
Some time ago I saw a television documentary of the French television team who rode in Mali (Africa) to remove an illiterate mechanic, completely disassembling the engine of an old car, repairing it and collecting again. As the roaring car disappeared in the distance, they came to the conclusion that an African is also capable of technical and technological advances.
Many of these cases exists to destroy the bar & # 39; EASURES built with a false perception, and to get people to appreciate each other.
3. You can experience more cultures and customs, and be better able to relate to different people
One day, I visited a friend in a rural area in the north of Ghana, the neighboring country. As usual demands, he had to take me to all members of his large family & # 39; u. I was surprised by the fact that we have served in the first place. But my greatest surprise was equally well be found in the other two places. We went back to my friend's house, and he was disappointed with me, and I was too full and angry at him, not even giving me a hint of what to expect.
In fact, my friend zone is the responsibility of visitors to submit food and pride when a visitor eats well. So what I did after the first house and the second less. However, my inability to eat on the third was considered as my not appreciating their food, and my decision to cut the visits short shame my friend with his family & # 39; and.
This custom exists in my region to a certain extent. Dear visitor should be offered a drink of water before you ask them the reason for the visit. But you do not have to drink some or all of the water, if you do not feel it. You just swallow or touch the container (cup, Calabi, etc.), and your behavior will not be treated as snobstva. But to say "no" is equivalent to "insult" the host.
4. You expand your horizon
One American came to visit me in him, and I took him to the Plateau Region de Plateau, the famous tourist center of my country. This is also Agriculture Zone Togo. We visited a farm where you can buy fruit, collected just before one.
"It's a real pineapple?" – I asked my friend, strange looking at the fruits that the farmer cut off from the plant and handed him.
"Why?" – I was surprised.
"He was not harvested from a large tree," – he said, hobbling.
I laughed out of my head.
"According to their size and weight, I thought that pineapples grow on trees," reddened, my friend explained.
Inquisitive farmer also laughed when I explained our conversation with him. He offered to show my friend the pineapple at different stages of development.
In the same way you love lamb, but I think you will appreciate it more if, for example, visiting shepherds region in Australia; the same goes for clothes made of cotton, when you visit the cotton farms of São Paulo in Brazil; coffee when you see how in Colombia coffee farmers dried under the tropical sun; chocolate when you see, as farmers nuts are removed from the pods (the first stage of chocolate processing) in cocoa plantations in Cote d & # 39; Yvoire (West Africa); canned pineapple, pineapple when you see on the way to a cannery in Puerto Rico, etc.
5. You experience a different environment
Germany was the first European country that I have visited. My burning desire was to see the snow in the winter, and especially the experience. One day in the dark winter night worried friend called to tell me that the snow was falling. I jumped out of bed, he rushed into the street and held out his hands, he tried to catch the flakes falling from the sky. Passers-German couple, walking their dogs, flashed me a funny smile.
While I hate "garmatana" dry hot wind that blows from the Sahara up to the coast of West Africa, bringing a lot of dust in the morning and the evening cold and the day burning, one-French emigre thought it exotic because of the fog he brings morning and evening shade.
6. Do you live the "big" world history
You can feel the excitement when he heard about (from a person or radio) or see (in a newspaper, television or the Internet), the pyramids of Egypt, the Indian Taj Mahal, historic buildings (castles, churches, the Castle) Europe, museums, West Africa locks (history slaveholders), America's plantation (history of the slave-owners), monasteries and sculptures of large trees of the American Indians, but a visit to the places of their residence with the & # 39 is a completely different experience.
7. You hospitable climate
Wealthy people in tropical climates often go abroad, when the hot climate becomes dark and no one knows that people with a temperate climate and in a hurry in a place where they can enjoy the sun and warm sea.
There are many other reasons why people have to travel far and wide. But I think that these 7 enough so that you can put your luggage, if you have never traveled on a journey, or quickly pick up your luggage, if you have been on it.
You do not have money to travel?
Maybe you are not working (you are a student or not working) or do not earn much, so can not travel. Do not worry. You can earn an easy work from home opportunities that you can do in your spare time. This includes data entry, conducting surveys, subscription partner enterprises, keeping the MLM, network marketing, freelance writing, call center agent, etc.
