Travel is travel. It doesn’t matter if it’s done locally, regionally or internationally. The point of travelling is not to have the opportunity to brag that you been somewhere. Travelling puts you out of your comfort zone and makes you learn things about yourself. You also learn things about a culture and you gain more empathy and a more opened mind from travelling.
