Travel is to Learn... May be, for someone, I am wrong here or may be I am going to say something which many of people would have never considered but would definitely ask everyone to ask these few points/questions to yourself. I will just say the simple things.
> Traveling to delhi and seeing Qutub Minar, Tughlakabad fort wont give you any idea of Slave Dynasty or Khilji dynasty?
> Traveling to Agra seeing Taj Mahal, Red Fort wont give you any idea of Mughals.
> Traveling to Rajasthan wont give you details of Maharajas and their historical dates.
> Or Can Visiting Mysore give you an idea of southern India?
Ask your self, visiting these places make you or help you to remember the history of India? Will our kids find more difficulties to understand and remember the history of our own country or they will find it easy? Do we need notes to memorise dates to vomit out in exams? or you got my point that definitely traveling can strengthen out kid's knowledge of history?
Like wise our kids visit Kashmir, Himachal or Kanyakumari or any part of Kerala along with a proper mentor who can make them see the details. A mentor or their interest or understanding of travel can make them see the culture, the weather, the environment, the language, the fruits, the flowers, the soil, the mountains, the birds and many other things which can be explained and I can bet the kids will be remembering it for a longer time than what they read in a book of geography or culture. Why I mention a mentor here because many of us still travels but misses out the smallest of things which have bigger impact or can give us lot of knowledge. If a person or a kid is curious of its own to now things then might be we don't need a mentor but traveling alone can do a lot.
Even travel gives us civic sense. like meeting new people and understanding their way of living, their governance, their rules and their languages.
Apart from these knowledge of outside world we grow from within. We learn the life in a better way. We learn to live our life better than a kid who doesn't travel. Here a kid or a person get a practical experiences of living outside their comfort zones. They learn to cope up with different adverse situations. While traveling, such situations are bound to come, no matter how much you plan in advance until you are very lucky to get all the comfort no matter wherever you go. May be you don't get a proper mattress to sleep, may be you don't get a food of your taste for which we always use to fight with our mothers at home, may be we don't get our clothes cleaned when we travel for longer time, may be we don't get a proper sleep but still have to do a lot for the day, may be we end up consuming all our money or lose everything. So most importantly we learn to manage our finances and I don't think there is any other better way to teach you the basic accounting than traveling. No matter whether you are interested or not you have to keep your accounts in your mind.
No matter whether you are carrying best of your suits or not. You learn to present yourself in front of others, you know to be polite and respectful to strangers, you know how to mix up with new people because you can not avoid them. You are bound to meet new people while traveling. You learn the gestures to interact even if you don't know their languages. At times you also learn new languages. So basically you become very presentable which is definitely going to help you in your future in every part and corner of your life journey.
Apart of all these you grow strong physically. Travel definitely gives you physical challenges. I think every one of us has got some of travel experiences may be it is short but yes every one definitely will agree that travel gives us physical challenges even if it is not a trekking or cycling but yes we should do trekking if it is to learn and to strengthen yourself. A person grow strong physically while traveling.
Science has proved that travel, especially traveling within the nature cures many diseases. It also helps out of cancer. Fresh air helps cancer patients. Science says that Being into the nature blocks 50% of your mind which keeps your mind away from the thoughts of daily problems or whatever happening back there in your office or home. This is my personal experience that when you are completely into nature or forest no matter how you try you cant think or be connected with your daily thoughts. You get lost into the nature and your mind doesn't work much. So it is not something to panic. Actually it decreases lots of your stress and reduces your anxiety level. Strengthens your heart and mind.
Travel gives you a lot. It is just we need to look for it and need to learn out of it. Even if we don't learn geographical or historical things we are bound to learn the way of living life in a better and easy way.
Since its my first writing or may say a blog, I tried to keep all the points in a shortest way possible. Else we can keep writing on and on because travel gives us many stories to share and many experiences to learn. Just, I shared the important and basic benefits of Traveling. Hope it helps. Anything You have please put in the comment and if you agree with my post and my views please share. The more we travel the more we gain. May be in my next post I will explain that we always don't need lot of money to travel because i know after reading this post first question everyone will be having that who will give money to travel or where will I get that much of time. So will come up with that as well. Its not that tough to manage. Happy Traveling !
