What people do to get to know new cultures, find a better job, get away from problems or just relax? They travel. In other words, they move from one place to another for a specific purpose. It is not surprising, then, that statistics show that nowadays more and more people do it, not only abroad, but also in the area of their own country. I firmly believe that there are many reasons why people travel, and the most important one is obviously a need for learning and exploring new things. People travel to open their eyes to the world and develop. The opportunity of interaction with different societies and experience new cultures can give people the chance to test themselves and make them more tolerant and open-minded. What is more, it can show them the sights and values they might normally ignore. For example, when we are in our hometown, we don’t usually focus on details, we walk along buildings with indifference and our heads in the clouds. When we travel, it is quite different. Every fountain, sculpture, painting, path or plant seems to be exciting to us. Travel gives us sensitivity and perceptiveness. However, some people travel not in order to discover, but in order to destroy the pieces of art or culture. Some people leave their countries with no money to get by. This is why we often hear of immigrants who participate in crimes. There is no doubt that people acquire information and increase their knowledge when they travel. Also, they learn new languages. Even people who have absolutely no talent for it will certainly learn a few expressions being overseas. For instance, when hearing the natives, you can learn the most necessary phrases to talk in a foreign language. That is why many people take part in the courses abroad. It is much easier to acquire language when being in its surrounding. Travel is a great occasion to slow time down....
