For the record: I don’t know the person that posted the previous tweet, but I very much agree with it.

As a high school and college graduate, I do think education is important to start your life by learning the basics.
But, as a traveler, I know that I still have a lot to learn. And, the more I travel, the more this reveals itself to me more and more every day.
You see, I’ve realized that once you start to travel to different countries in the world, you will truly realize that all those things you learned in school were average knowledge to get you started with your life.
. . .
This is why I started to travel and write in this blog; because I wanted to encourage people to travel and always keep exploring and learning, no matter how smart they think they are. There’s always something out there in the world that you can learn (it’s big enough, you’ll find something).
. . .
Now, I’m not saying that you should quit school and just travel (don’t do that).
What I’m saying is: Don’t think that just because you have the best diploma out there means you know everything.
Think about it this way: “If you can’t speak every language in the world, you still have a lot to learn.” (that’s a little exaggerated, but you get the point).
Thanks for reading!
I hope this post made you think, & inspired you to keep exploring & learning!
