Essay about travel
Travelling is an activity that has been with humans since their early years of existence. From that time on people have been dreaming about travelling to different places – it can be another countryside or the Moon.
If you ask a grown-up person nowadays if he or she would like to travel, the answer can be mostly positive. Let us understand why people want to travel, why if you begin speaking about travels, most of us get sparkles of pleasure in our eyes.
Travelling is a process of getting to some place where you have never been before but would like to be for a period of time to see different places of interest. Of course, this is enjoyment! And this is also knowledge: a person gets acquainted with new cultures and their traditions.
This is also knowledge of oneself: while travelling you can understand if it is possible for you to be among people of a different culture and understand them. In a different place, if it is ancient enough, you can learn much about the history of mankind. If you travel to places of fascinating nature (for example, to hot springs), you see how rich and diverse our nature is. The experience of travels makes you stronger, more understanding and intelligent, and, of course, tolerant. I think, you understand now different positive moments of travelling.
There are still negative moments and you should take them into consideration. First of all you may need a certain amount of money to travel: for visas, tickets, staying in hotels. These costs can be less if you travel with some youth organization or as a hitch-hiker. Another problem is knowledge of languages as it is still necessary for you to know at least English to communicate while travelling or have good phrase books and programs for translating necessary information. To travel successfully you should solve these problems in advance.
Still these problems can’t be an obstacle if you are eager to travel. Travel and learn new and different countries!
