Travels and trips hold a great charm. They give us an opportunity to visit new places and meet new people. The knowledge that we get about them is-first hand and unforgettable. We try to learn every detail about them. The experience thus gained is better and richer. Therefore travels should be made a regular part of the educational scheme.
Travels to new places sharpen our power of observation. When we see new places we try to understand them fully. We form in our minds a picture which may not be forgotten. Our curiosity about unvisited places is aroused. We make full use of our eyes and minds. As a result we become mentally alert and receptive to impressions.
Travels enable us to meet new people and know their life-style. It is a real delight to meet people who speak a different language and put on new types of clothes. We get an opportunity to make new friendships. We feel that we are the members of a big family called mankind. We come to develop sympathy and understanding for each other.
Travels bring us in close contact with nature. We see nature in all shapes and moods. We see mountains with their towering peaks Beauty, charm and quietness of nature present a feast for our eyes. For the time being we forget the worries of our daily life.
Travels bring life and art within our reach and knowledge. Whatever knowledge we have about historical buildings, art and architecture is bookish and imperfect. But travels give us first hand information about them. We come to realize that life is an adventure. The spirit of adventure does not let us rest at home. Thus travels are both educative and entertaining.
