Some people say they don’t have to travel because they can see everything on television, find it on the internet or read in a book. For us, television, the internet, and books cannot match the experience of traveling. A documentary on TV, a video on the internet, travel guides or travel magazines … none of them can give you the feeling that you will be able to experience in a certain place.
Before we leave for a certain destination, we think it is great to look a lot about this, watch videos and read books, but that is only a taste of the real travel experience that awaits us.
