Some people believe that traveling broadens one’s mind, whereas others believe that it is a big waste of time and money. They consider that it is better to learn about the world by books.

I think that traveling is a great way to broaden your mind. First of all, there is a saying, "It is better to see something one hundred time than to hear about it one hundret times." Everything you see during your travels leave deep emotional traces in your memory thuse is learned better. Second, going somewhere else, you see other places, nations and cultures. You have no choice but learn them and try to understand them better.

At the same time there are those who believe that some people do not experience the local culture at all. They stay in their hotels, go to the beach, eat in restaurants and that is it. It would be cheaper and faster to learn about those places at home, reading proper books.

I think these people have a point. Obviously, if a person does not want to experience the local culture, you can not force it upon him or her. At the same time, whether he wants it or not, he does experience it. He sees the architecture, the locals, how they are dressed and how they interact with each other. It is not a lot, but it is not nothing either.

In conclusion, I would like to say that traveling is a perfect way to broaden your mind and experience the world faster, easier and in a more pleasant way. It adds to your education a spirit of adventure that I strongly believe is substantial for every educational process.
