The question of understanding one’s own country better has been discussed for quite a long time. Some people say that it helps to know one’s own country better, whereas others do not agree. They believe that only traveling around a person’s own country will help to know it better.

In my opinion people who travel abroad know their country better. First of all, it is a scientific fact that the principle of understanding is generally based on comparisonFor example, if a person sees one type of a road in his or her country and has nothing to compare it with, such people cannot create an objective opinion about the quality of their roads. Secondly, traveling broadens one’s mind, which means a person has more information about different kinds of countries, laws, religions, types of government and so on.

At the same time there are people who claim that only journeys around one's own country will help a person understand it better. The more own sights one sees the better he or she comprehends and appreciates them

I do not agree with the statement mentioned above. No matter how much a person sees or travels inside of their own country, only contrasts and differences give deeper understanding of things. It is the rule of understanding.

In conclusion, I would like to say there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight traveling in one’s own country should give better understanding of it, but in actual fact going abroad gives a deeper understanding. Thus, I strongly believe that traveling abroad helps to understand one's own country better.
