History and travel are complementary

Travel provides vivid experiences of historical sites while history increases our understanding of our travels. When we study history, it teaches us about the people who have lived in the past and how their lives were. It also shows us how different civilizations interacted with each other in order to progress as human beings. Since ancient times, man has been fascinated by historical events and figures from the distant past. In an era dominated by digital technology, we often forget about the ways in which ancient civilizations influenced modern life

In recent years, it has become more common to write your thoughts and feelings down on a blog rather than write them out as a letter. The practice of keeping journals dates back thousands of years to ancient civilizations in Asia and Europe. Like today, these cultures used journals as a way to remember important events or ideas that might otherwise be forgotten after the passage of time.
