How does traveling change you ?

Dear TED Fellow Family,

Traveling is a fascinating experience...

Traveling gives us a chance to experience new cultures, new visions of life and new ways of life...

Traveling provides us with the opportunities to meet a huge diversity of new people and see how other people live...

Traveling forces us to live outside our comfort zones, alter our perspective on things and challenges our deepest beliefs...

How does travel fundamentally change you? How a trip truly transformed you?
What are your best lessons learned?

TED Community, I would love to hear your stories...

    Oct 23 2013: I believe travel is very important. It opens your eyes to the rest of the world. I think it's important to see how big the world is. A lot of people think that where they live is the "centre of the universe", but when you travel you realize how far from the truth this is... it changes your perspective for the better.

    Of course an issue is the cost of travel. Not everyone can afford to travel and this is an issue that is not easy to rectify.
