I started travelling quite late in my life. In fact, it was in early 1998 that I first travelled to a country other than where live – England – and where I am originally from – Bangladesh. I wish I had the opportunity to travel earlier as the benefits that one gains in life from early travelling are immeasurable. Travelling adds to one’s knowledge and experiences that are not available to those who either do not get a chance to travel or are not interested in going to unfamiliar places.
Travelling provides an opportunity to gain new knowledge, helps generate new interest and stimulates new passions. It is a valuable educational process complements formal education.
