you choose to do. And for some people a

must to be happy.

Because it is true, many people assert today

that travelling makes them happy.

Travelling has a long-term reward because

even after the experience the memory of

the trip is stored in our minds together

with feelings and new information.

It is definitely a good investment, you

spend time preparing your trip, you

experience the trip and when you come

back you refresh the memory once and

another article. For now, hope you enjoyed

your last Summertime either if you were a

tourist, a traveller or just on holiday and

let’s start preparing the following one.

And, don’t forget Gustave Flaubert’s words

“ Travel makes one modest, you see what a

tiny place you occupy in the world”.
