Travelling as a Part of Education

(Travelling as a Part of Education): Traveling means going from one place to another by foot or by vehicles of any kind. Man is a travelling being by nature. This instinct of roaming about is rooted in human nature and this leads a man to know the unknown, to see the unseen and to enjoy the unenjoyed things of homeland and abroad.

Travelling has great educational value. Nowadays, it is also regarded as a  part of education, because–

First, travelling widens our views on life. Besides, travelling brings us joy, mental satisfaction and Ecstacy. It is also a way to get rid of the boredom of life.

Secondly, travelling promotes understanding of people of various culture and civilisation. It is an important component in establishing world peace, human integrity and a sense of fellow-feeling.

Thirdly, travelling gives us first-hand knowledge of things. In most cases, theoretical studies have no practical application in our lives. Travel bridges this gap as true education takes place outside the classroom. Thus travelling lead our bookish knowledge into perfection.

Fourthly, travelling takes us into contact with nature. The magnificence and varied beauty of nature leave a wonderful impression on us. When a man is at the top of a mountain, he realizes his own littleness and realizes the frivolity of human quarrels and conflicts.

Fifthly, travelling impresses our mind with the magnificence, grandeur, glory and wonder of God’s creation. Travelling helps the traveller to know how the earth is full of natural beauty. We have read from books the majesty of the Himalayas, the vastness of the sea and the beauty of Taj Mahal, Red Fort, Great Wall of China etc. But we know a lot of them if we see them with our eyes.

Both travelling and education are connected with each other. Therefore, educational institutions should give more and more facilities to the students for doing tours to various places of importance at home and abroad. Thus, travelling should be made an essential part of education. 0 0 0
