It only has six letters but all of them hide a secret, a memory, an experience, a lesson… Something you will not forget. There are infinite ways to travel; by car, by airplane, by train, by ferry… however, it does not matter how, neither where you are going to but the great expectatives that open in front of you. As Hipólito Taine said once:  “We travel to change, not our location, but our ideas.”  absorbed by the routine it can be very difficult to have different visions of the subjects. To travel is the most easy and quickly way to escape from the daily life. Wikipedia shows this definition about travelling  “Travel is the movement of people between relatively distant geographical locations, and can involve travel by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, airplane, or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one way or round trip. Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements.”

In addition to this idea, going to other countries, and knowing new cultures, offers a distinct point of view of that things we are use to, moreover, it allows us to understand that there is no just a single way to do the deeds well. The diversity rewards and gives us a grade of tolerance that makes us easier the cohabitation. At the time a travel is made, it suggests various situations, some of them can be very funny, but, others can put to the test the traveller. Nevertheless, once they are got over, all that tasks make us stronger, time softens them and the memories can be even pleasant, it is a method to deal with ourselves and to know one´s Independence and adaptation capacity.

The Travels are amazing while they go on, nonetheless, the memories and preliminaries, could be even more marvellous and gratifying.

Open your soul.
