Travel has the potential to be widely fulfilling. It exposes you to new cultures, different perspective and unique experiences. The further you travel the more you are pushed out of your comfort zone and the more you learn about your self and the world around you.
Why write my travel diary?
Reflect more. Look back and reflect what you have learned and apply it to other parts of life.
Remember more. Like cultures, customs, people, observations from the surrounding.
