Every so often, we loved to pack up our stuff and go visit a fresh place. Nowadays, when the need to travel affects us, we go against our instinct to stay in our comfort zone and proceed to visit exotic and new places.Then we travel the world, exhaust ourselves and come back to our every day lives. Back to our jobs and back to our spouses and families. Some of us may even have weblogs in which we record our journeys. Others may have pictures that they may show their family members every chance they get of their trip to Rome, Australia or Antarctica.
