New Views

“Yet for me the first great joy of traveling is simply the luxury of leaving all my beliefs and certainties at home, and seeing everything I thought I knew in a different light, and from a crooked angle.”

This quote from Pico Iyer’s essay appeals to me because I can relate because when I travel, I love to leave everything behind and just enjoy the views, new people, and new cultures. I also really enjoy having a perspective on things, like different cultures, then traveling somewhere and my perspective completely changes because I am experiencing the cultures first hand. I enjoy this because it humbles you and can prevent jumping to conclusions.
