How Travel Changes the World

Posted on 08 April 2018 by (0)

The news seems to portray the world as a bad place to live. The bad news that you watch every day can dampen your spirit of the world. Climate change, economic problems, poverty, terrorism, and disease are some of the things that make human worries endless. In fact, watching the news makes the future seem completely uncertain. Is the world becoming uninhabitable? Will the world have enough resources and water to sustain humans in the future? Which is the next target for terrorists?

Nevertheless, when you travel the world you become more optimistic. You stop being worried and asking such questions and lead a positive life. That’s because travel is at the core of globalization. And globalization is a strong force that keeps people together. It changes how people perceive the world.

Travel Brings People Together

When you travel, you meet people that you may have developed a bad perception towards after watching bad news about their countries. Travel brings you closer to such people. It enables you to interact with more people thereby making archaic notions regarding your differences obsolete.

Travel Brings Exposure

When you travel, you expose yourself to new cultures, new people, and new ideas. This enables you to understand different people and their culture. Traveling enables you to realize that the people you read about or watch in the news have problems.

Travel Highlights Both Similarities and Differences

When you travel the world, you realize that human cultures have minor differences. People from different parts of the globe have dreams and hopes. They all want to work and enjoy a safe, happy life. They also want to love and be loved. Ideologies and places do not limit these ideals. Thus, travel enables you to learn this as well as understand and appreciate other people better.

Basically, travel changes people and the world. When you travel more, you won’t look at the world and life the same way. You appreciate other people and life. That’s how travel changes the world.
