A Narrow-Minded Traveler
Please visit our sponsor.
Traveling as most of people know it is just another form of entertainment.
First of all, every single person has once faced a difficult situation they though there was no solution to. It often happens when being abroad. It is impossible to name all the obstacles waiting out there. By overcoming them, one does not only feel relief but also learns how to live a life for real, meeting a range of tough issues. Those occurrences always have result in open-mindedness and creativity.
Furthermore, even documental programs are not capable of presenting the viewer with the real picture. People make acquaintance with a variety of traditions and cultural customs best when traveling. Reading a book about Buenos Aires may give one more information yet less vivid image than visiting the city. However developed the contemporary world is, technology will not manage to overcome the conventional approach.
Finally, only travel can widen one's circle of friends. The process leading to the arrival at our destination conducts many actions and it is very unlikely not to exchange opinions with somebody. Being outspoken is possible only when having different points of view and travel lets us acquire it.
To sum up, calling a traveler narrow-minded a person can be quite an oxymoron, especially in the terms of international voyages. If one stayed very opinionated and individualistic throughout the trip, one wouldn't be too likely to survive it. Traveling is beneficial in a beautiful way ' it broadens the mind greatly.
