“Travel is a good thing. You learn things when you travel, when you meet people out of your comfort zone from other cultures, you cannot help but learn and feel a certain [kinship], you see what you have in common with people around the world… that feels good. And it can’t be anything but good for the world the more we meet each other and move around.”
— Anthony Bourdain
Travelling (whether literally or just figuratively) outside of our comfort zones is rarely, well, comfortable.
Sometimes it can be thoroughly unpleasant.
Sometimes, though, it is also downright necessary.
