Sometimes we talk only for talking's sake. Some other times we do it to exchange opinions or because we are interested in getting to know the other's vision of the world. Thus, it may happen that we don't like other people's opinions. And sometimes we even try to change their ideas.
Personally, I would like to change the idea of many people that travelling is expensive, or even a luxury. On the contrary, I think that travelling is such a daily routine, as eating, drinking or sleeping. This article, precisely, is a small try to show you that travelling is easy and it's a pleasure as well. And well, in case you know that already, good for you.
