Traveling is an exciting time to learn another language, marvel at the natural beauty, and immerse yourself in another culture. I love the excitement of travel. It starts when you pick the next destination and buy a plane ticket. Talking to friends that have been there, or researching the informaiton on the web brings the excitement to a higher level.
After the travel has begun, life is simple on the road. I find this strangely comforting. Everything I own and need, I carry with me in my pack. If I do need something, purhcasing it in a new country can be fun by reading the labels, or playing sherades with the store clerk.
Cultures other than my own are fascinating; it’s almost like a charm. There’s so many things to see and experience and so many different people to meet out there, I don’t see how I could spend my whole life back home. It's been said that the children that have been pulled out of school for a year to travel the world, return more advanced than their peers.
