Travel will surely become a hobby if everyone has the luxury of time and money. If money is not an issue, do you think visiting other places in the world would be one on your to-do list or not? Sounds interesting right? I think everyone would love to experience what it feels like to be in other places not to work but to unwind from stress, explore, and feel their way of living.
There are certain people I know including myself who just save just to visit other places. Surveys say that millions of people around the globe go for a travel. It may be for leisure, business or just a simple getaway. Some say it is just a waste of time and money. I understand that, but there are just people like me who are passionate about travel especially going to other countries. It is one of my greatest dreams to see the other side of the world. Are you one of me? Then if YES always get yourself ready to go and ready to explore how to be with other people in the globe who definitely have a different culture.
