by travelling wenot only gain knowledge but broaden our the frog in the well,the man who sticks to his home has a narrow vision of the shakespeare says,"rather see the wonders of the world abroad than,living duly sluggarized at home,wear out thy youth with shapeless ideness."in the places we travel about we are able to encounter men of different temperaments,customs and habits and learn to deal with them.we also learn to adapt ourselves to new manners and customs.we cultivate a caution,forbearance and tact.And that is one of the chief aims of education.
travel also help us brush up our knowledge of a foreign language.if,for example,we travel aboutEngland for a few weeks,we shall be able to speak english better through our contact with native speakers.
