It is a way of traveling that is focused on experiencing the country, town, or specific location while connecting with the countrys history, people, food, and culture. Travel is not only about visiting places and taking pictures, but also about discovering new ideas and perspectives, a real investment in self.
Traveling to new places allows you to get out of your comfort zone and try new experiences and challenges as you learn more about the world around you.
The people you meet along the way, and the experiences you get to share with friends, are the things that will stay with you long after you have left. Whether they are a local person or a bunch of like-minded travelers, the memories you have from interacting with others can be fleeting or life-changing.
