Travel makes one modest

“Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in the world”.

– Gustave Flaubert

  1. That is so true, also when you meet various people, your perspective on the world, your horizons and your dreams grow beyond boundaries that you had set earlier in life. Traveling surely would be one of the best therapy to a lot of mental illnesses, however small or big.

  2. Traveling is an exercise in adventure and humility, that’s for sure! In American schools, we learn that we are the best, and that everyone else wants to live here. My travels helped me realize that there are happy people everywhere, and that I had much to learn about the world. I’ve been to about 50 countries and hundreds of cities, and I’ve found a reason to love them all.
