I believe that travel most certainly broadens the mind and imparts true education. A large majority of us are not able to set out on exclusive trips to seek and find, learn and understand or indeed explore and discover. However, most of us usually enjoy family holidays/gatherings, summer vacations, a last minute all inclusive break, maybe a fancy cruise or we might even travel for work. Each of these situations provide ample opportunity to observe and appreciate all the fascinating aspects of everyday life in different places. Some aspects feel familiar and some really remote but all of them thoroughly interesting. Which is probably why my favourite holiday ‘activity’ is to find a spot in a busy city square, or a cafe window, or a balcony or verandah and watch the world go by. A large pair of sunglasses and hot or cold beverage helps to enhance the experience!!
