Travel is the ultimate education. When you travel, you learn as much about yourself as you learn about other people, new places, different cultures, exotic foods, and history.

Experiencing something for the first time creates memories. Travel is always new. Memories are more valuable to an individual than any physical possession. In fact, most personal possessions we deem precious are not valuable in their own right, but only have value as a visual or tactile symbol of an experience, a person or a place. (Consider those items you hold dear.)

Travel shifts time. When you travel life slows down and your perception of yourself, of others, of the world around you — and your place in it — changes. Traveling delivers the adventurer a sense of wonder, with the simultaneous opportunity for thoughtful personal reflection.

Travel helps us to grow.
