Travelling like everything has two sides. For some people, it only serves to confirm their prejudices, whereas for others it acts as a means of education and broadens the mind.
First of all, visiting other countries abroad can help people of all ages learn languages, so that they broaden their experiences. For example, learning a language in the country in which it is spoken is very different from studying it in one’s home country. For myself, coming to this country has enabled me to improve my English and meet my new friends. Similarly, while moving around a country, travellers can learn about the geography and local culture rather than relying on books or other media as sources of information. For my own part, having first hand knowledge of the United Kingdom has been invaluable. I understand the culture more and can make decisions for myself rather than have them made for me by other people.
Unfortunately, there is a downside to travelling. People frequently feel nervous when they travel, either through excitement or through anxiety about what is to come. In such circumstances people tend to be more critical of the treatment they receive. How often has one heard: where I come from, it isn’t done like this or we do it this way? It is hardly surprising that this happens when the same thing occurs with people visiting others in different parts of their own country. Think what happens when people get married!
Travelling will continue to enrich the minds of some, but, unfortunately, it will confirm the prejudices of others. This is human nature.
