I have always been told and very strongly beleived in the fact that there is no better education than travel. And by travel i mean to travel around the world to different countries, experiencing different cultures and people. IMHO it makes a person so much more open/broad minded and so much more accepting towards other people of other races and other backgrounds.
I think the worst problem with people can be the lack of travel, ofcourse, lots and lots of people cannot afford air travel, but then again there are lots of people who can and still dont use that facility.
It may not only be for business, but even for say holidays and short trips. I think the whole world would be full of much better and wiser people if people travelled more. I know for a fact, its the travel i have had in my life that has made me as open minded as i am and has given me the ability to be myself no matter where i am in the world. It also gives me a feeling of bravery, and gives me the advantage to interact with people from Brazil, the USA, the UK, France, Australia, etc ,etc ,etc with confidence.
Of course, this is all related to aviation in general because without that it wouldnt be possible to travel as quickly as it is possible today.
What i want to ask you (as my subject says) how does travel benefit or how has it benefitted you and what advice would you give young people out there about travel and its importance.
Maybe a bit vague topic, but still an interesting topic nonetheless.
