When you travel, you stand the chance of gaining new perspectives to life which can influence the way you perceive, judge and decide on the issues of life.
The way a man who travels sees life is quite different from the way a man who doesn't travel does. Just like the African adage says" A young man who travels a lot is older than an old man who stays in the village".
Travelling helps us to make use of our five senses maximally. When you travel, you can feel, touch, smell, taste, hear and see things yourself.
Travelling helps you to understand others, understand yourself, broaden your horizon and make you see life from different angles.
A man who travels a lot will always have an edge.
