Sometimes, you may get tired of your own place, of all the things you see around you, and you may want to try out something new.
You want adventure and the feeling of venturing into the unknown. You want to experience what you haven’t. You like eating in the Chinese restaurant across your apartment but don’t quite feel like the food there is authentic. You love pizza and pasta but want to taste the real thing. You want to know a lot more than books can provide and you want to see for yourself things that you just saw on pictures.
Perhaps what you need is overseas travel. You need to experience being in a place where you don’t know anyone, where you are the foreigner, where people speak a language that you don’t understand. You have to taste the cuisine and experience the culture that is very much different from your own. This would be a great experience for you and your family, or with your friends, or you may even travel alone. You might even meet new people and get to know yourself a lot more.
