When I was a kid, I used to hear a lot of people waxing lyrical on how great it was to be able to travel and see the world.

I couldn't wait to start!

And yes, I did get to see and experience a lot of different things. But it was neither the flights and hotels, nor the snapping of photographs that made me the wiser.

It was talking to different people, understanding why they thought a certain way and acted upon their thoughts. I was exposed to a lot of cultures which now help me put life and events in perspective.

At the end of the day, it is not about knowing famous landmarks (or not knowing them) or even visiting them, it is about the people who created those landmarks.

To all those people who share my wanderlust, I dedicate this section to you, and may you enjoy traveling as much as I do.
