There is so much hysteria when it comes to travelling out. Most people don’t even waste time to think about it, some people have never even thought about it. When the opportunity presents itself they are quick to jump at it. Not that I’m against travelling abroad but I want to see reasons to stay here, I’d love to travel out and just have fun.
