Even though travel has stopped or at a minimum slowed down a great deal because of the current situations going on in our world, like COVID-19, this shouldn't make you completely miss out on things you've wanted to do. You should still take a trip and go visit somewhere new and exciting that opens you up to new cultures, new traditions, and new experiences.

Going to a new country is such an exciting experience. Many say that their trips were eye opening and changed their life. There are so many ways to go to another country, and each one gives you a new opportunity and different experiences.

If you don't want to go on your own and feel like you want to make a difference in a country where others may not be as fortunate as you, take a trip with a group that is going somewhere for that purpose. This could be a church group if you are religious, or you can just find a group who has a passion for something you do as well, like clean water, and then go with them and do good.

This is when people have a major eye-opener. They see how others are living and how they don't have what the basic needs in life like clean drinking water or a small fortunes like electricity.

If you chose to go to a new country and want to just experience their world, then I highly recommend that as well. I had the opportunity to travel around Europe for two weeks when I was in high school and it was one of my favorite experiences. I was able to see new things and experience new cultures.

When you go out of the country, you get to see how others live and how other countries function. It was eye opening to see how different everything was, from the amazing architecture and old buildings to the plants and landscaping, and even how different they treat meal times.

In a lot of European countries, they take more time to actually fully enjoy their meals and experience the food because it is important to them and their culture. For example, in France the French love to take their time and enjoy their meal. They will sit for hours and just talk and take in the experience.

Traveling is something that can give people a new perspective and can show how different something might be first hand. Everyone should go to a different country at least once in their life. It can provide so much knowledge and experience, and it can possibly drive you to help others even if they aren't within our borders.
