Traveling can give you a new sense of perception.
You see, when you truly understand the size of this vast earth we live on, you can start to think outside of yourself. You start to perceive more about your life and the lives of others. Often times, people get stuck thinking about how things affect just them, or just their country.
When you leave your hometown and realize how much more is out there, you can begin to grasp how individual you are, and how important it is to consider more than just yourself. This kind of perception and inspiration can only be gained through travel.
