James Meeker, a travel enthusiast, and photojournalist believe travel is a cure for all humanly problems. Apart from various health benefits it also allows everyone to understand different cultures and familiarize themselves with various facts and history pertaining to that place. Mark Twain once quoted “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” Such an impactful quote implores you to experience different cultures and appreciate the intricacies of the same.
