Why Do People Travel All Over the Globe?

Why do people leave their homes and voyage all over the globe?
By being exposed to new places, people and cultures, you’ll develop a wider world view. And that will make you a better-rounded global citizen. It’s a great reward and big reason why people love to travel. It helps open your mind. You realize that there’s no one way to live life. Meeting people from other places will show you that your world view isn’t the same as everyone else’s.
Why do you travel? What are your reasons?
