January 22, 2021

People often ask “what do you love about travelling?”

It can teach you lessons about the history and culture of different people from around the world – the lessons they skipped over in the classroom. Most importantly, it teaches you things about yourself that you may never have discovered if you hadn’t ventured out of your comfort zone. Read on for the lessons our travel crew has learned about themselves:
