Amazon Jungle Rainforest A Whole New World


Gustav Flaubert once said, “Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you
occupy in this world.” Only being eighteen years old and already traveled to seven countries, I
fully understand where Flaubert is coming from. To travel should not only be to see beautiful
things that most people will never see in a lifetime. It should be intended to expand your mind
and see the world for the beauty it entails. I believe that traveling has the capacity to broaden
minds and widen horizons because it pushes you out of your comfort zone, it offers new
perspectives, and deepens the depths of your knowledge. And while travelling these double jogging stroller for infant and toddler

Traveling has the power to push anyone out of their comfort zone. By going to a place
you’ve never been before, that’s new and exciting and is beneficial in its discomfort. Personally,
although I love to hike, cliff dive, and explore, camping really makes me uneasy. I, fortunately,
had the chance to go to tourism in kerala an Peru for three weeks when I was fourteen, during which I stayed in the
middle of the Amazon Jungle Rainforest of South America for one week. We stayed in a place
that offered room and board but it was lit only by candles and no electricity whatsoever. By far,
that is one of my favorite memories I have experienced. I would relentlessly encourage anyone to
do this to be able to experience what I had the chance to. I was able to exist in a world where
phones and what was on the television channels was of no concern. Instead of waking up to text
message alerts I was hearing birds sing and wind blow through the trees. The comforting silence
gave me a taste of utter peace and unprecedented bliss. It gave me a new perspective of enjoying
nature while admiring every second of it without a constant glance down at my phone.

To be able to get out of your usual area and see new things and places enriches anyone
with more perspectives than the ones they have grown accustomed to. For example, I know
someone who has never left the Los Angeles area at all. The farthest he has ever gone is Santa
Monica and that is not saying very much. I see my views of the world from France, Ireland,
Portugal, Spain, Peru, Costa Rica, and Mexico and I notice his only here and the difference in
our mindsets. He has a difficult time opening his mind to be able to imagine that people from
Europe eat pizza with forks and knives or that it is possible to live amongst monkeys walking
around like dogs in Costa Rica. The unfortunate truth is that he has become to used to the usual
people in his home that have a routine, act the same way, or are just “LA folks”. This is why I
believe with every chance given, even if it is just to explore the city next to yours, every person
should take it! Even the people living only a few miles away from you can have a very different
lifestyle than your own. Another example would be the book “Eat, Pray, Love” written by
Elizabeth Gilbert. It discusses a woman going through the worst point in her life so she pursues a
journey to other countries to find herself. This shows how beneficial traveling and seeing the
world can lift someone’s spirits and create a new meaning to the word ‘life’.

Nonetheless, traveling not only broadens your horizons in a sense of pretty sights and
different people but altogether deepens your knowledge. Everyone learns something new
everyday just staying in their city and enjoying what they are used to.

But imagine the possibilities if they were somewhere completely unknown surrounded by people with different
habits and lifestyles. There is a show called “An Idiot Abroad” created by Ricky Gervais and
Stephen Merchant where they send their most close minded and introverted friend to the most
exotic places and have him participate in things he would never consider. Besides the comedic
portion of the show, it is a really good example of someone who refuses to step outside of their
comfort zone and had no intention of seeing anything but the usual. After each trip, no matter
how much the star hates it, he does learn a little more contributing as to why it was not that bad
or why he would never go back. Either way, whether you love or hate the trip, you are gifted
with knowledge that you will be able to keep for the rest of your life.

From personal experience, I see traveling as an extremely beneficial and uplifting
experience. It has the capability to open anyones mind, create new views, and endorse better
understanding for the other people we share the world with. Needless to say that it broadens
horizons physically, emotionally, and even on rare occasions, spiritually. I truly encourage
traveling even to the bare minimum because although the world seems small at times, there is
always something around the corner waiting to change your mind.
