The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.
A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
Being exposed, even for a few days, to another country and culture makes you realize how different life is in other parts of the world. I guess it's an experience that expands your knowledge, opens your eyes and your mind, makes you more tolerant and acceptant of diversity, makes you realize that the world and life in general is much bigger than the world you know.
Travel does what good novelists also do to the life of everyday, placing it like a picture in a frame or a gem in its setting, so that the intrinsic qualities are made more clear. Travel does this with the very stuff that everyday life is made of, giving to it the sharp contour and meaning of art.”
