Someone once said: “Or travel, or reading, either your body or soul should be always on the way”.Travel is one of my favorite hobbies. Travel can broaden my horizon and experience the thing I never do before. I think the important thing during a travel is about what you learn along the way in that journey and to always keep your mind open about what you see before you get to the destination.
