Do you agree of disagree with the following statements? which you would prefer to travel outside or within country. Use specific reasons and examples in your answer.

No one can deny that there are both positive and negative aspects of traveling outside the country. If I were forced to choose, I would definitely travel abroad. It is my firm belief that it is an amazing experience for a number of reasons, and I will develop these ideas in the subsequent paragraphs. To begin with, you get to know a different culture. As an example, when you travel to a different place the first thing that you notice is that they do not talk like you, even if they speak the same language. I have to admit that my opinion on this matter has been profoundly influenced by my own personal background. You see, last year I traveled to Mexico and I was able to visit different parts of that marvelous country. Even though I also speak Spanish, the intonation and the way I talk are completely different compared to the Mexican way. For this reason, I believe that experiencing a different culture is an amazing experience. Secondly, even the common things are extraordinary for one. Things such as the weather, which is something that locals sense every day, might seem extraordinary to foreigners. Drawing from my own knowledge, when I was in Mexico, the weather was unbelievable. Raindrops were relatively big compared to where I am from. There are two consequences of the weather that were new to me. On one hand, raindrops hurt, they felt like multiple noodles on the skin. On the other hand, sometimes streets were flooded for about one hour, so everyone has to be careful when walking. I have never experienced this before, even when I traveled in Peru. It is certainly clear to see why I am amazed by these everyday things from a foreign city. To summarize, traveling to other places offers different extraordinary experiences. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of visiting different places is what I support.
