"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page" - Saint Augustine 

What does this quote from a great Saint Augustine teach us? It explains how traveling shapes the thoughts of a man and becomes a great factor in changing life’s perspectives. The direction and condition of life suddenly change after traveling as it is an unlimited source of wonderful and knowledgeable experiences. So, indifference in traveling may lead to nervousness that makes the mind empty while traveling gives a life a new turn and brings hilarious changes in life. Not only the mind is broadened by the traveling but the good effects on health also come to recognition from visiting new locations.

At least Saint Augustine’ quote spread the same message that if you do not travel, you bind your mind in narrow limits. Thus, plan traveling to break the shackles and barriers of your mind. 

Don’t Listen To Stupid People 

A lot of stupid people quote irrationally and make excuses. They can think that traveling is time and money consuming. However, they don’t know the facts. History is the witness how travelers have collected and preserved the information for us and we take benefits from their work today. 

For all those who make silly quotes against traveling, just should once go through what Mark Twain said about what traveling actually is. His quote may prove an eye-opening citation for those who think traveling is their enemy. He says, 

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime”. 

Importance Of Traveling 

That loudly announces the importance of traveling. But on a broad level, having constant travel is somewhere not possible for every man. Still, the effort should go towards having some miles of traveling in a constant manner. In this case, the mind should have fresh oxygen of nature and knowledge. The reason is that every mile of a journey contains a new and unknown subtle of a life. 

Traveling has a big meaning, it doesn’t refer departing from one place and arriving on another. The main motive of the traveling is rather to absorb from what traveling gives. Lao Tzu says

“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving”. 

This famous quote from Lao Tzu describes the glory and intent of traveling. Traveling is not merely running of time but it is time to run the mind in the sake of unknown knowledge, new culture, new history, and new facts. Traveling gives an opportunity to earn these rare facilities. 

Learn From the Legends 

You must know there are several famous or forgotten legends that left the world mesmerizing through their unorthodox interest and that was of traveling. Who can dare to forget Christopher Columbus? He was the first one who dared to leverage an investment from royalty to sail his journey through a voyage he never anticipated. But he has the dream and passion to do something extraordinary. He stopped only when he discovered America. What do these great, almost legendary examples describe us? Their life describes and teaches not to lose heart but to keep up the unrest will of doing something different from the world. For this purpose, one should pursue the interim will of traveling.
