"Another popular benefit of travel is the acquisition of knowledge. The more we travel, the more we learn and this will expand our minds."


Introduction
Traveling is a very common practice in today's world. The advances of the world have brought us planes and ships that help international travel. Even in our locality, we can travel in cars and trains. Therefore, trips have increased considerably, generating millions annually. Traveling offers us many benefits, with leisure being the most obvious. 

So we begin to wonder some of the ways traveling broaden our knowledge:

1)  Enhance your creativity:


Traveling will present you with many things. Things you wouldn't find otherwise if you stayed home all the time. You will see that there are different ways of dealing with problems in life. The way things are done in your hometown will not be the same way things are done in the new location you travel to. 

See things differently:
You will start to have an open mind towards things. You will begin to question the things you normally know and trust. You can start looking for alternative ways of approach things in your life and career. A professional study has confirmed that those who travel tend to be more creative. They noted that those who don't travel much are happy with the way things are normally done. However, those who travel are more likely to try something else to get the same result.
Increase efficiency:
Based on the results of this study, it's safe to say that traveling enhances your creativity. In addition to many other benefits, you will be more efficient in your work. This should encourage more people to travel more frequently and try newer and more exciting things.

2)  Exposes you to new cultures:

There are many new cultures around the world. They all have a local culture where they come from. This means that there are hundreds of cultures worldwide. While social media and the Internet can teach you about it, experience is the best teacher.

World is different in real than in books:
Numerous books teach you about the various cultures of the world. These books would not exist if the authors did not travel to these places. We all speak different languages ​​in our different cultures, but thanks to travel, people now speak a universal language. So this has helped improve international relations
Global village:
With the world becoming a larger global village, exposure to other cultures is valuable. This can promote peace and unity among people. When you learn more about another culture, you learn to respect each other. You will also learn about things that are considered disrespectful and how you can avoid them. If you travel enough, you become an expert in foreign cultures. 
Become a writer:
You can even write and publish your own book to enlighten people. With this type of knowledge, you can have a different and unique perspective on conflict. If the world is lucky, you can offer solutions to some of the problems with your traveling experience.

3)  Increase your confidence


Trust is fickle, as it can be easily built and destroyed in one act. Traveling is one of the ways to build trust. Some notable travel destinations will make you climb mountains or walk on a narrow and unstable path. So as we continue to travel and find more places, we gain more confidence with each trip. We will begin to notice that we are more open to trying new things that we could not do before. As such we will learn more and expand our minds

Embracing the challenge:
When traveling, you find yourself in various situations and challenges that you would not normally face while staying in your comfort zone. So when you are in an unknown place, you have no choice but to face the danger and overcome it, which will not only change you as a person but will also make you a completely different human being who can face the challenge instead of avoiding and moving away from it. 

You will begin to help those around you and this will make people feel great to be around you. Your social life will improve and you will become a useful citizen.

4)  You get to meet interesting people

One of the greatest constants of traveling is that you can meet many interesting people. Some of them may be traveling companions like you and you can become friends. In many other cases, you can meet people who will change your perspective on different issues. The more you travel, the more interesting the people you meet. Different cultures educate people in different ways and all of them will have different impacts on your life. 
Finding your inner best version:
Many people we meet on a daily basis have an impact on our lives, so if we stay in one place, that's the impact we have. When we travel constantly, we are exposed to different influences until we are the best versions of ourselves. Take the film industry, for example, without traveling, Hollywood would not have discovered martial arts. Since its discovery, it has become a popular genre, loved by many.

Martial arts are also known to produce many sages who influenced culture. Many other disciplines have produced notable individuals throughout human history. Not all of these people feel comfortable enough to be on television and impact our lives. To get more positive impacts like this, we will have to travel more to different places.


5)  It gives you many good memories 


We are only the sum of our memories and experiences. One thing that is guaranteed when traveling is that it will create many new memories. In cases where you travel by adventure or to famous adventure places, you will have a lot of fun. These kinds of memories are usually very difficult to replace. So we will often find ourselves remembering some of our interesting adventures.
Keeping us worthy:
 On these trips, we come across many things. On adventure travel, we may have to climb rocks, traverse jungles, and explore structures. These are all memories that we would treasure for the rest of our lives. As we age, our memories are one of the things that keep us sane. We look back at the things we do with joy. If we repent, they will attack us. To avoid this, we need to take a more active trip. 
Building our place in the world:
The more we travel, the greater the memories we have. Since we are the sum of our memories, then we would have lived a great life. In this way, we can have a full life and many good memories as we age and eventually die.
We know ourselves better and find our true place in the world
