You’ll gain a broader perspective
As Twain’s quote emphasises, travel can open people’s minds and allow them to see things from a new perspective.
“When you travel, you are faced with alternative cultures that have a different way of doing, thinking and believing,” said Simon Huggins. “It challenges your assumptions and makes you shift your way of looking at things. When you get home, you come back to your own culture with different eyes and a more questioning mind.”
