Reading books will make you grow as a person. You will have access to a vast range of information. It will entertain you. It will stimulate your creativity. It will also open your eyes to a new whole world that is different from your reality. It will make you dream and aspire to become a better version of yourself.
St. Augustine of Hippo, said to be one of the most intelligent saints who ever lived, believed in the value of traveling. He correlated reading with traveling. Just like in reading books, travelling will also help you grow as a person. You will see different places and things. You will be exposed to various people, cultures, and beliefs.
When you just stay at home or in your area, everything that you do are all habits. Everything is automatic and just merely a part of your routine. However, when you travel, you become alert of your surrounding. You begin to plan and everything that you do will involve decision making. You will also be exposed to a different way of doing things.
When you get back home from your travel. Somehow, a part of you has changed. You begin to look at things differently. You are no longer the same person as you used to be.
So, what are your travel goals for next year?
