Travel quotes, very thoughtful ..

Travel, to places far and wide, is one of the best ways to get knowledge and exposure to events and happenings around the world. I have been to a lot of places within the country and even spent a good part of my life staying at these places. I have been able to appreciate the culture and life of the different people in the country. My outlook on the country changed very much. 

I am planning to do foreign trips soon, my son already being a global traveller, so that I can understand other countries and their culture much better. No amount of reading can give you the exposure as a trip once.

Lot of my friends, who are abroad, have never made a trip to one of the seven wonders of the world from India, the Taj Mahal in Agra. Being in the country I made it a point to visit the place in 2014 with my daughter. It was a great experience and I was humbled standing in front of one of the greatest wonders of the world.

A couple of years before I got a chance to visit the Sri Padmanabhaswamy temple in Trivandrum, the richest temple of the world, now being valued at about a trillion US dollars.

Having gone through all these places, I sometimes sit back and think what the people at those places where I have visited are doing presently ? Are they grazing cattle or going on their everyday chores or greeting tourists ? Are the places still impeccably neat as it was then ? Are the airports and railway stations in the same manner even now ?
