Traveling extraordinary. You see new things, experience new cultures, eat cool food, and have fun. I believe this helps open the mind and the possibility of increasing creativity too. All trips are good, but quite honestly you just see and experience so much when you tour, stay in tourist hotels, and hang out with fellow tourists most of the time. I don’t knock tourism at all, and sometimes tourists, but to really see the area you need to travel independently, not with a group of tourists.
Most of the world does not have a hotel tour, but has a very good hotel in locals staying when they travel. You will not find Michelin restaurants starring, but many local dining places are cheap and delicious. You might meet some travelers, but you will definitely interact with the locals too. Communication may not be entirely in English, but you will be amazed how you can communicate even when there is no or a little common language. The best of all, you will see and experience far more, most likely enjoying it very much.
Traveling in most parts of the world is very cheap, yes, I say cheap. A week as tourists in France may be charged two or more than a thousand dollars per person including airplane tickets, and I will add enough commensurate. For the same price you can easily have fun for several months very easily in many amazing and safe areas in the world. You travel and eat very well, stay in a convenient location, and have a wonderful time and enlighten. Of course you can travel in France too much cheaper.
Now some areas in the world are easier to travel than others. Beginner travelers may not be able to travel sub-Sahara Africa for example, even though the area is interesting. But Southeast Asia is very easy to travel and one of the more popular areas. Most countries feature easy trips, lots of accommodations, really great food, and the paths are well beaten from other travelers. South America is another extraordinary area to travel like in Central America, and a little Spanish runs far if you know some.
Traveling more about being there rather than moving fast in crazy efforts to see everything. You can never see everything. So slower, it takes a few weeks or months (yes, you can if planning ahead), and see the world.
