When I can afford it, one of my favorite things to do is travel. Visiting new places and experiencing other cultures are things I consider to be fundamental to the human experience, and it is something I recommend everyone do. It's Not only do you get to see the sights in person, but interacting with another culture and its people opens your mind, enriches your soul, and builds character. It also gives you the chance to see the world as other people see it and opens you to different perspectives. As some before me have said, be a traveler, not a tourist.
